Hello,

Thank you so very much for taking the time to respond to my desperate search for the names of my paternal great-grandparents. I have all of the information that you requested...Here it is:

WILLIAM EMMETT BOYD'S INFORMATION:
DOB: June 10, 1900 Died September 10, 1989 in Chicago, IL
RACE: African American
SIBLINGS: It appears that there may be no siblings for him. I have his obituary right now in hand from his funeral that took place in Chicago, IL in 1989 and I see no mention of any siblings that he may have had mentioned within it and of course no mention of his parents names as of course no one knew any of this information.

MARRIAGE: William E. Boyd married BERNICE PRICE DOB-April 12,1910, the third child of thirteen children of JAMES ALBERT PRICE & LOVIE AUSTIN PRICE also from Bogue Chitto, Mississippi in the year 1935 when she would have been 25 years old and he 35 years old of course. I DO NOT HAVE ANY INFORMATION ON HER PARENTS EITHER AND WOULD LOVE TO RECEIVE THAT AS WELL, PLEASE. It says that they after marriage supposedly had adopted four foster children, but they definitely together had 6 biological children together while living in Chicago after they moved from Mississippi. Or maybe a few of the older ones may have been born there I don't know for sure, but I think that my own father is the oldest of these 6 born in Chicago in the year of 1939, so that leads me to believe that all of their children were born in Chicago, especially with being only four years after their marriage in 1935.

POSSIBLE FOSTER CHILDREN(s)NAME: Hattie Anderson (Just one of the four names of the foster children that I know of who was born in Mississippi)
