From the 1930 Census there was a William Salle living in the same house. Would you know who this would be?

Diama Salle would be my GG grandmother.

I believe I have a picture of her and possibly her brother.

Are you related to the Salle's or Britains?

Lydia Collins Upshaw Alsup
Tanya, I would be glad to share with you any information that I have collected on the Upshaw family. They are not my direct line, I descend from Lydia Alsup and William Alsup. There is quite a lot of info for the Upshaw family circulating. Have you tried All or most of my info has been placed there. It is the Lamb - Hicks family tree by shenoldb43. If you arent a member or can not find it let me know. What info or family line are you needing? Always glad to help and share.
I an having trouble tracing this Lydia Collins family, can't find her parents. Have you seen or found anything showing her parents and which Collins she descends from.

RE: Wila Brooksie Shaffer
I know who her parents, children and some other forebears were. As far as personal family stuff, not so much. Would you like any lineage info?

Lydia Sweeten (Whitehead)
Hi Tonya,

Thank you so much for managing Lydia's site. I am a Whitehead descendant (Lydia would be my great great grandmother on my fathers side). I can provide add'l to family you may have contact info for.

Where's William? He made the 1900 CO census with the family but disappears.

Hope to hear from you,

K Jones

RE: John K. Sallee
Diama A. and Levi were boarders in hoh David Baucom, in the 1880 MO Greene Co census for Pond Creek, p144a [HeritageQuest pg nums]. It has parents born TN and AR, for each, so I thought they were most likely sister and brother, though there is the possibility it was her first marriage.
Still curious,
