Thank you so much for this info. My parents were divorced in 1945 and I only saw my father twice after that. He disappeared in 1945 or 46. I did not know much about his family.
A lot of the info I have came from my daughter-in-law's father who was into geneology and got me started.
Most of your info agrees with mine except for the following:
My mother remembers that Fannie Burns was born in Timmonsville, S.C. I could not verify that myself. She remembered that Benjamin and Mary Lou had a daughter, but she and my father were divorced before Ben, Jr. Fannie and John Roper lived in New York and that is all I have on her. Robert Henry(not T) married Alma Williams 6/18/1928 in Florence SC I am thier daughter, Kay.
I don't have anything on Robert Hayward's wife being named Sara. Mother said Fannie Burns was her name.Mother is 90 and she can't remember a lot of details, but that she did remember. She thought a lot of her.
You said the info about Robert Henry dying in Ca. may not be correct. Is he dead? Why was he in Ca? The last place I knew of him being was Southport, NC. Rebecca(Beck) told me that one time. She said he took thier boat to Southport and left it there.
I did not have the info on James C Re Ville
and Fannie Burris. I really appreciate you sharing so much with me. I guess Ben Jr. and I are cousins and also your daughter-in-law too.(Hi Cousins, nice to know you). I wish I could be as helpful to you as you were to me but that is all I have. Please let me know if you find out more and I will do the same.
