RE: Bibby

I'm sorry. I misunderstood you and thought you said that Orlan was your grandfather.

Good info to pass on, though. Sorry for the confusion.

Take CARE!

RE: Bibby
Hi, Barbie! Nice to "meet" You!

Orlan's mother, Stella...who married Verlon, was my husband (John's) great Aunt and Aunt to his mother, Cuba Jeane (Jean) Yates Newman. Jean's father was Reuben Allen Yates, older brother to Stella. He married Bessie Elsa Mae Vaughan in May, 1910.

So, Stella is your great grandmother, and Bessie would be your great Aunt! But, you probably already knew all that.

I have a newspaper clipping of Stella's obit, but I'll have to take it to work to scan it, as my scanner is down. I'll try to do that, tomorrow.

There are a couple of pictures of Bessie on her memorial - Find-A-Grave Memorial #: 58551887, if you'd like to take a look! I've emailed my brother-in-law (who has quite a few family pictures and has put them in digital format) to see if maybe he has some pictures of Stella, too.

I have some bits of information on this family, if you like / need, that I've collected...mostly from John's mother's things. We miss her terribly. I'll be happy to share, if you like!

ALWAYS nice to meet family!

Take Care! I don't check my messages here, regularly, but if you write back...I will get back with you! PROMISE! :) J*
