Hi there! Floyd Wallen was my great grandfather, but everyone called him Poppy. You are right, his wife was my great grandma 'Lighty', which is how you pronounced her name, but it was spelled Lydia. My grandmother was his daughter Beatrice and when talking to my mom, she seemed to recall something to the fact that he didn't know his dad, but there was a family in Garret that he looked quite a bit like. You were close to where they lived at too. It's know as Hueysville now, but the hollar is known as 'Saltlick'. Much of the family all still lives back in there, although my grandmother beatrice and her only husband which knew the family most of his life has passed as well. I do know that his daughter Genavie, Haydney, Bonnie and Anne all live in or around Ligoneer Indiana. Are you trying to trace the family tree?
