Sportsman family in Taney County Mo
I am Angela Melton Stewart, my mother is Inna Faye Sportsman Melton. Her father was Vollie Sportsman, son of William Sportsman and Grace Davis Sportsman. Wondering what information you might have on this part of the family. Thanks!

RE: confusion ecplained
I had some of these names and dates...just the Georgianna and Anna stuff was baffling. Thanks so much. Georgianna Sportsman Lacey is the missing link between the two families. She was my mother's aunt and Raymond Lacey's grandmother. Wow. Thank you so much!

RE: confusion ecplained
wow, that explains alot!!! I am looking for a picture of Ray Lacey, or any of his siblings. I think I have a pic of Pearl, his sister, somewhere. If you don't have one, maybe another family member. Mom always talked about Buddy Joe, etc. Grandma Minnie had pics, but not of Laceys.
Thank you so much for explaining the above. Seems like the name Williams is also intertwined more than once with Sportsman. Seems like a small

Hello. Thanks for the info. Samuel Sportsman was James Salem Sportsman's father. Yes. But I have no info that he had a daughter names Georgiann. Plus I have Edward Lacey's wife as Anna G. Lacey...on Raymond's death certificate his mother is listed as Georgeanna Sportsman...but her death certificate lists her maiden name as Mauller. Seems maybe a brother gave the info on death certificate.He is listed as Ray Mauller. Anything you have to clear this up would be appreciated.
Thanks, Lori

RE: I am your cousin.
My mother was married to Raymond Lacey. He was her cousin, but I don't know where the connection is from. Maybe my grandmother, Minnie sportsman Jennings. Do you know how they were cousins? Dorothy and Ray?
