I don't know if I can help you or not, but hopefully I can.
My grandmother was Flora Sanderford before marrying a Kennedy. She, as far as I know, lived all her life around Mendenhall, MS.
I'm not too familiar with that side of my family, but if you I do remember a great-aunt named Lula. (I think.)
Please email me and let me know something.
Hope I can help.
