Mystery Family Search!

Posted: 4 Jun 2010 2:55AM GMT
Classification: Query
Surnames: Chandler, Hisaw, Bennett
I'm stuck at a brickwall! I'm looking for any info on my grandpa's side of the family! His mother was Opal Hisaw, Her parents were Jesse Hisaw and Gertie Chandler. I can find info on the Hisaw's, but I'm stuck at Gertie Chandler, I know she passed away young but I can not figure out her death date (somewhere between 1916-1919) Then I'm also stuck because her parents were Zeb Chandler and (i think Luella/Lora Chandler) but it seems as a mysetry because in the census they always claimd Opal as there daughter, not granddaugter...
I'm also looking for my grandpa's bioloigical father. Opal had him in 1934 and 1 month later married Marion Bennett who adopted him. She passed in 1938-1939.
Any info please e-mail me and we can exchange info!
Thanks so much!
All these families lived around Stoddard, Dexter, New Madrid, Missouri
