Mrs. Lloyd,
Thank you so much for that! I found a piece of paper with my 11 Aunts and Uncles on it, where they were born places like Dumps Creek Va., Coal Town Ten., Copper Hill Ten. etc.
However there were no dates. I have been fortunate to find death cert.'s. No birth cert.'s.
They were all born at home and, when they asked their mother when they were born, she said something to the effect, Oh sometime in the spring, winter what ever. In fact they fought over one birthday.
So pieceing this all together. They moved around alot, guess grandpa was following the work as a miner.
It's a story, grandma ended up in Tx with all but 1 of her kids, grandpa ended up in McDowell WV, had to seek him out.
This piece of paper tells me where they were with birth of kids, like a map.
