Hi Nellie;
Thank you for answering my query. My dad could remember that Pearl married a Riley but he wasn't sure if it was Chester or Lester since their names sounded the same. They were his second cousins, my third. My gr grandmother was Allice Williamson Martin, she was the sister of Pearl's father, Thomas Williamson.
I had found Pearl and Lester on the Social Security Death Index. It had the last place they were living as Lilborn in New Madrid Co., but I knew that dad said that they lived around Portageville the last he had heard. I am glad to know where they are buried. My dad and I are planning a trip to AR, and TN to visit in May. I hope to get to the cemetery and visit their graves. We have so many places we want to go while we are down there. We live in Nebraska now, but I was born in Hayti. My mother's parent's are buried in Hayti and I have a baby brother buried there.
Are you related to Pearl and Lester or did you know them? My dad knew that they had a son, Herbert, and a daughter, Shirley. Do you have any information about them? I have been in touch with Shirley through another Williamson cousin, but do not know what happened to Herbert.
I would appreciate any information.
Thnk you very much.
