Classification: Query
Surnames: Greenway, Sanders
I'm guessing that this is your family in the records below. Can't tell for sure from the info you gave, but it looks like your dad would be the Charles H. Sanders born in 1927 and that the Greenway name you are using was your grandmother's maiden name. Your grandfather appears to be Penic B. Sanders, son of Milford and Winnie.
It's also possible that your father was a son of one of Elvie's brothers, lost his parents through some tragedy and was taken in by Penic and Elvie. We can only speculate until some records are found.

Forgive me if any of this is incorrect (or possibly embarrassing, since there seems to have been some sort of disruption of the family when your father was very young).
Looking around online, I find other members of this family also trying to piece together the history. Have you been in contact with any of them?

I found Elvie Greenway Sanders associated with Rock Branch Baptist Church. Don't know if they would have any info relating to her or her family.

I can't find any other relevant records online. You might want to visit the Georgia State Archives and look for birth and marriage records from Hart County around 1927.
