Iris Medlock is my aunt, but I’ve lost contact with her. Her husband George, was my father’s brother. His name was Edward William Medlock and he went by Duke. He lived most of his adult life in Las Vegas, NV. He was born in Lookout Mountain, Kentucky on September 15, 1915. I am my father’s only child.

George and Iris lived in Hawthorne, California with their two sons, George and Eddy (probably Edward) when I was growing up.

If you are in contact with Iris or her sons, I would greatly appreciate being put in touch with them. Thank you for posting your family history, it means a lot to me. Hope this is helpful to you.

Take care,
Laynee (aka ELayne)

Hello, How nice to hear from you. I am married to Ed Medlock. Iris was his mother, Arthur E. was his grandfather. We do not know why, but Iris was estranged from her siblings. Ed did not know many of his relatives. This message board is responsible for reuniting Ed and his cousin on his father's side of the family. He was never made aware of any other cousins, and would love to correspond with your family. Please send me an e-mail at lynmed919@gmail.com. I'd be happy to share our information with you.

I have a poem that was published in a newspaper written by Kathryne Brisley from Cook, MN. I do not have a year of publication nor do I have the entire newspaper, only the poem clipped out. I have had it for decades as it was in a Bible I received from an elderly babysitter.
It has always been my favorite poem.
I now teach middle school language arts and am sharing it with my students in our poetry unit.
I always wanted to find her family and share it with them. She wrote it when she was 16 years old. I tried to state it here, but the post does not allow for poetry writing formats.
Please let me know if you would like it sent to you individually via email. I'm curious about her birth year and how old this poem actually is! My students would be fascinated!!
