Hi Karen,
I was just talking to my father. He said Bertie's youngest daughter was Doris, and she was in the Waves in WWII, married some guy from Jersey and moved there. He said Berties children were older then him. The story that my father says about Dudley is that he was on a roof working and some man was going up a ladder. The ladder was about to fall and Dudley went to grab it and he hurt the side of his chest and never recovered from it and eventually died. He still has some cousins that live up near bamberg and surrounding orangeburg county. I remember one and his named was Arthur. According to my father, he knows only of Bertie, and the youngest daughter that died, are the only siblings that my grandfather had.
The Groce's are a weird name and the misspellings are galore. My father tried to get his birth certificate and they couldn't find it until someone thought about looking under Grace. My father was born in Bamberg. I'm glad I decided to look up my grandfather's name today. This has shine some light into my questions. My grandfather when he was living told stories about his mother and his father. I assume from what lillian told him. My grandfather told us stories about his father had money and land when he died. My grandfather said that his mother was swindled, right after his father passed away, she was swindled by Dudley's brothers who were lawyers and took everything. Well there are a couple of stories. Need anymore? My dad is 73 and has he has gotten older, he has been telling more stories of his past.
thanks for the information Karen
