We're kin! Grundy A. Fann is my g/g/g/gf; Alec is my g/g/gf; William Ashley (Bill or Billy) is my g/gf; Homer Brandon is my gf; and Curtis Ray is my dad. I'm still in Middle Tennessee; was born in Cannon County myself. Which of Grandpa Alec's kids' kids are you?
We actually have a PHOTO of Grandpa Alec; I'll have to swipe and copy it. Plenty of other photos of Alec's kids survive, including the one of the family reunion at Uncle John's up at his house on what's now the old 70S at Culpepper.
And, like you, I've hit the same stone wall with Grandpa Grundy. E-mail me at your convenience and we'll compare notes, and maybe you can tell me who this 60-plus-year-old woman named Jane Fann is who showed up after Granny Caroline died! (BTW, the Martha L. Fann buried next to him is Martha Lee or Lou Harris Fann, his third wife. I don't have my paperwork in front of me - I'm at work, bad me - but Caroline died when the boys were little and he remarried and that one died too and he remarried again.)
Look forward to hearing from you and other cousins!
