My name is Charles C. Rhames II (Buddy). Over the last several years I have been looking for info on my family history. I have had little sucess and I am becoming hopeless with my efforts. My grandmother, Marion S Mervin, last married name, born 22 Jan 1913, seems to be a huge key in finding out more. I don't know if she is still alive due to the fact my Aunt won't allow any contact with her. The info I have is little but hopefully it can be helpful. She was married three times, second to a Laughlin; had one child with first marriage, nine with second and one with third, my Grandfather, Emzy Oren Mervin, born 30 Mar 1924, pasted away 22 Sept 1990 in Florida. I'm not sure if her maiden name was Sylva, Silva or whatever. I can't remember, but it sounds right. Any help from anyone would be extremely appreciated. My son will thank you one day also. This is all for him, so he won't grow up like me not knowing all of his family background or history. Thank you again.
