I am the granddaughter of Geneva Hord (daughter of Agnes Smith Huskey Hord and John Richard Hord of Gaffney, SC). She was born Geneva Jesse Hord Oct. 4, 1907 in Gaffney, SC her parents were John Richard Hord and Agnes Smith Hord, I understand by a 1910 census they had 8 children living in their home at that time. 1)girl-Cecil Huskey, 2)boy-Farrow Huskey, 3)boy-Crawley Huskey, 4)boy-Travis Hord, 5)boy-Felmer Hord, 6)boy-Clarence Hord, 7)girl-Geneva Hord, 8)girl-Lunelle Hord. I understand from memories and tales of my grandmother's childhood they lived on a farm in Gaffney, SC and had some slaves that worked for her father or owned by her father and my grandmother adored them and often referred to one of them as motherly to her, and that my grandmother and her mother had an awful relationship to the point that my grandmother only married my grandfather to get away from her own mother. I would love to know more tales and I would like to know who Samuel Farrow Smith's parents names are and follow up research further and also would like more info on the family, also looking for any info on my grandfather Ross Grimes, he and my grandmother born 7 children together. Jerrell R., Bobby R., Charlie, Eugene V., Sarah, Daphne, and my dad James Brannon.
Love to hear from you,
Donna Lisa (Grimes) Galyan
