Effie Elrod Godfrey was my great aunt. Her sister, Hettie, was my grandmother. They also had siblings named Virgil, Lizzie, Calvey, Mamie and Katherine. There could have been more - I'll ask my Dad. Their parents were Samuel J. Elrod (born abt. 1862) and Lucinda Fowler Elrod (1869) (Please note, I have seen information that her name may be recorded as Sinthy on census pages, but I remember my grandmother telling me it was Lucinda or Lucindy. (Samuel's first wife was Amanda Grant, and they also had children, although I do not know their names.) My grandmother never told me that my great grandfather, Samuel, was a preacher as Mr. Stuart mentioned. I'll have to ask my Dad about that, too.
I remember that Effie had a daughter named Dolly. She also had another daughter who lived near me, but I haven't seen her or her children (a boy and a girl)in quite a while. I'll ask Dad if Effie had any other children.
Hope this helps.
