You must be Roy's granddaughter. I am the daughter of Roy's sister, Thelma. It is my understanding that William and Almedia had 15 children, 3 who died as infants. They had 2 sets of twins, one set died at birth and one of another set died as an infant. They had 12 children who lived to be adults; Deceased - Floyd, Hester, Grace, Lola, Leroy, Jesse, Ruby, Thelma, Denver (Otis), and Still Living - Opal, Lena, and Nell. I am just beginning to research our family tree and would appreciate any information anyone has. I believe the Cherokee bloodline is through Grandma (Almedia)whose maiden name I believe was Wallace. I have been told that William and Almedia were married when Almedia was 15 and she was born in 1890, which would make the year of their marriage in 1905. Their first child, Floyd, was born in 1906.
