Hi, Cousin! I'm Rosemary, Evelyn's youngest. Molly was my favorite cousin, but I guess I shouldn't say that. She was older than my mother and grew up with her at the Mill Dam in Spanishburg. The mill burned down in Jan 1963 the night Mother died. Her cousin Truman and his wife Ethel lived there then. People from the area came there that night to watch it burn down and knew that it must be the end of Evelyn too. There's a photo of the Mill Dam on my tree Eden's Harvest.
You're welcome to anything on the tree; I'll officially "invite" you to glean whatever you like. Use caution on the earlier lines in case that stupid three century nonsense shows up from when I started the tree and added in several generations at a time without seeing back the most recent.
I have to correct your message; Molly's mom was Aunt Bam (Theora Alabama LILLY LILLY BERRYHILL LONG SPENCER). Aunt Bam married John Sherman LILLY and Archie SPENCER. I can't remember the given names of the others at the moment.
I don't remember your dad, just Sherm and Joan. We'd go to the Philly area every two years or so to see the gang. Lou was technically my first cousin but was married to my father's brother Tracy so she was "Aunt Lou" to me. Tracy Junior and I are way too closely related for comfort.
Granny (Cynthia Jane LILLY LILLY LILLY) lived with us until her death in 1952; I was six. I still miss her. Her first husband (Bam and Basil's father) was Thomas HUBBARD Lilly; they divorced, and Granny married my grandfather Arthur BEE Lilly, Hubbard's first cousin; Mother and her sister Alice were his children.
It's all such a tangled mess of "kudzu"; I have a lot of Granny's old photos on the tree; help yourself. I still have thousands of my birth family and my own brood to add but short-term memory loss (rheumatic fever caused bradycardia which resulted in oxygen deprivation and multiple cardiac arrests). I get so frustrated that I cannot even think of adding the photos to the tree. When things settle a bit (I broke two vertebrae and am having a really hard time), I'll finish sorting them and get help adding to the tree. It's for all of us. I temporarily made the tree private because of a problem with a distant relative; I thought we both needed a break. I'll put the tree back to public view in a week or so. In the meantime, you'll have access. ENJOY!
