I am looking for my great grandmother's family and am just starting, so I have limited information. Here is what I know:

My grandmother Helen May Haney
Great-grands: William Clarence (W.C) Brewer and Jessie (MN?) Holden

All I know is that Jessie's mother's maiden name was Sloan (died when ggm was a baby) and her father's initials were F.R. Holden. I'm thinking the F stands for Frank because my great uncle's name was Frank Ulysses Holden. I believe my ggm was born in Tennessee, but lived in Arkansas (where my gm was born), Tennessee and Alabama. F.R. died in 1936 I believe in Hollandale, MS because I have a letter my ggm's step mother sent her when my gggf passed away and that is the postmark. I know that there were step children, possibly Lucille and Theodore because they are mentioned in the letter along with 'the rest of the kids at home'. None of whom were half siblings, but I'm not sure if they took the Holden name or not.
I know this isn't much to go on, but any info would be greatly appreciated. I am very interested in the Sloan and Brewer lines, too, if possible. I know nothing beyond W.C. Brewer and Jessie Holden's parents.
Thanks!
