I'm trying to locate some of my distant family in the Grundy, VA area.

Elzi McClanahan, jr.
Clinton Lee Endocot
These two are my 2nd cousins; we have never met. There father, Elzia, Sr. was, of course, my 1st cousin.

Elzia, Sr., I found out had passed away in the Laurens, SC area back in 2003, and I found the above 2 2nd cousins names in their father's obituary listing.

Elzia Sr.'s mother, Maggie Williams of McCarr, Pike County, KY was my Aunt and their Grandmother.

I have tried in vain to get ahold of ANY type of long distance operator in the Grundy area to try and look them up. No such luck.

Any help would be appreciated; perhaps, if you are local call to Grundy, you could look them up, and then just give them my information so they can contact me, or look up and send me an email with thier phone number so that I can call them.
