I inherited the family genealogy stuff this weekend and it is a bit overwhelming, but I will try to make some sense of it.

First, the trait of using surnames as middle names continues. My name is Robert Gary Cates (family name), my cousins are Robertson Grant Davenport and James Laird Davenport.

Mom was the elder daughter of Harold James Gary (1899 - 1975) who was the son of George Elmer Gary (1874 -1952) who was son of Alanson Gary (1841 - 1890) whose father was David Washington Gary (. Her mother was Velma VanLora Basil (1903 - 1958), daughter of John Bertis Basil (1882 - 1945) who was the son of William Basil.

This information does not seem to directly address your question but there is more out there I have yet to convert to computer. Perhaps a name or two here rings a bell.
