Hello all....
we visited Ms and La in 1950 where I met my Great Grandpa Savel/Savell...
He was almost totally blind but could see light and some shadow.. he lived in a cabin next to main house of family... maybe aunts or uncles of my Mother Ruby M Green daughter of James Green...Viola Green StepMother...birth mom may have been mary/marrium (similar) Savel... died in about 1914,15,16 pos 13.. one younger brother possibly Marshal. some of James and Viola's children were Joe,Lemar,Mary.... Granpa Savel could walk from cabin to house on his own had a cane..and in his cabin was a wooden trunk with candy and tobacco in it.. he gave us each a piece of plug tobacco by mistake... Ychhk and Blah...!!!it was awful.. we'd never seen plug tobacco... Mother was married to John W. Williams.. I was 4 or nearly 5 so not much to go on after 57 years.. any wild guess or lead will be appreciated and followed... thanx Rod Willliams
