Oh dear, there's a wrong turn somewhere there. It's Pinkie Lee not Pickey. And Flavius isn't her husband. Rev. Mark Morrow was. Flavius was her son. Also, Bertha Faye, Lela May, Inez, Jenet, Betty, Thelma, Leon, & Lloyd. I think that's all of them though I'm not positive about the spelling of Jenet. I've got to dig more and make sure. Also, I don't have all of their birthdays and I'm tinking one of the girls is still alive. Aunt Inez died many years ago. I remember hiding out in Grandma's pantry and crying for most of the day before she found me. I remember she held me and told me she loved me. That was unusual for her since she wasn't a very affectionate person but she did show her feelings in other ways. She gave me a dress for my fifth birthday that I still had when I was 13. I just would not let my mother throw it away. I lost it during a move from St. Petersburg back to Alabama some time later. uh, ggg grandfather I think. Pinkie was my grandmother, then her father was William Nolie Nix and his father John Henry Nix... then Tyre was his father? Yes, 3 g's. Nancy Lela Bishop is the name I was told so long ago for Grandmother's mother's name. Lela Nancy's mother's name was Jane King, her husband (grandma's father) Abner Bishop. That's as far back as I have. Grandma and Grandpa are buried here in Stapleton behind that little church that I am to excited to recall the name of at this moment. I'm going to go there and write down the names and inscriptions on the gravestones and take pictures of them for the other people looking for the same info. Trying to recall dates made me realize just how much detail info I'm missing. I'll have to go back to my aunt's house and scan the family Bible she has there. It's falling apart at the spine but the writing is still legible. I forgot the questions I'd intended to ask so I'll just go for now and when I remember them, I'll write them down. Thanks heaps for your answer and info! You're the greatest! Take care , Sincerely, Susan.

Who is Lopez? I saw that name on my Aunt KIMMY's page & was just wondering???

I didn't get to copy all the info off all the headstones in the graveyard today like I'd wanted to. The wind kicked up and gave me one heck of a bad earache. I did get the info for Grandma and the others. Unfortunately, there weren't any Nix's there other than her like I'd thought. I'll just send you the few I did get.

Pinkey Nix b. 12 Oct 1896 d. 12 Feb 1974 Rev. Mark Morrow b. 26 May 1897 d. 23 Mar 1972 m. 08 Apr 1919

"Captain" Stanley Benjamin Funk b. 12 Jan 1910 Bertha Faye Morrow b. 05 Feb. 1925 d. 14 Jan. 1998 m. 14 Jan. 1962

      • I know Aunt Bertha was married prior to Stanley and his name was Phillips so I assume this is her first. That would fit to with her�3 sons prior to her marriage to Stanley being the age they are. I don't know their full names though. They are, Marshall, Donald & Leslie. I'll try to find what I can on them too.

Louis R. Phillips b. 1914 d. 1965 It just says "Father" under the dates and is right next to the Morrow's plots.

Flavius Morrow SFC U.S. Army Korea Vietnam b. 05 Sept. 1929 d. 07 Jul 1983 On his death certificate it says buried 09 Jul 1983

Leon Morrow b. 10 Oct 1931 d. 21 Mar. 1981 (Inscription says "Darling We Miss Thee" m. 15 Sept. 1956 Eunice Yvonne Minchew b. 29 Jan. 1940

Joseph Auffrey Leblanc b. 1918 d. 1979 (inscription "Beloved Husband And Father") Lela Morrow Leblanc b. 04 Sept. 1937 d. 01 Nov. 1997 ( inscription "Loving Wife Mother And Friend")

Kimberly Leblanc Joseph b. 05 Mar 1964 d. 04 Jan. 1987

That's all I have for now. I'll send you what I can as I get it. Take care. Kimmy left behind a loving huband and a 1 yr. old son.
