I'm looking for information on my family. After searching through this board, and that of I still am uncertain of which branch I am a descendant of. Any information I have are sketchy, as my grandmother did not talk about her family much.

My grandmothers name was Delsie Louise Pinson, married to Ralph M. Dick of PA. I believe she was born between 1920-1921 (in Simpson County, TN) and died in 1995. I have one great uncle that is still living in Murfreesboro, TN and his name is R.L. (those of us that are left don't know what that stands for!) I know my grandmother had another brother named Jimmie.

I know there was much tragedy in this side of my family. Like I said, my grandma didn't talk about it much, but whenever she did mention her parents, she refered to their deaths as "the accident." I had always assumed that they died together in a car accident or something. Recently, I was told that they had committed suicide within 3 months of each other, and my grandma's older brother committed suicide shortly thereafter. I don't know this for a fact, but I believe her parents to be a John Pinson and Margrett Pinson, who are both listed as deceased in 1937. All I know from here on out is that my grandmother raised her younger brothers after that point.

I also know that our family cemetary is an hour or two from Murfreesboro, as I remember visiting the cemetary as a child.

Anyone who can offer any information that traces back to these Pinsons?
