HI I haven't got that info on my grandfather and would appreciate any help. sorry for the late reply.Just his birth date would be good to have there is no one that knows for sure in family.
He was a wonderful person who Sam out of lord of the rings would be the closest personality to him. The old timers who lost their jobs through retirement didn't last long after as he had worked himself to an early grave. He wanted to work until he was 90. Thank you and bless you.

RE: Yancey & Algee families / Oakwood Cem. Milan, TN.
My children descend from Lewis Davis Yancey and Mildred Winifred Kavanaugh, through their daughter Nancy Winifred Yancey and Martin Nall/Nalle, on their father's side. I've been working on their DNA matches. I hope I don't bug you too much. Thank you so much for your help.

Onie Elizabeth Bryant Veazey - Your Edit
If you read the bio it begins with a NOTE: about the birth date of my great aunt Onie Elizabeth. I am aware the headstone shows Ap 1 but the TN Death Certificate shows Jan 1. A Death Certificate is considered a legal citation in genealogy since it's a recorded record but a headstone is considered a source - not a citation. They can both be in error but until I find a 2nd legally recorded source, I am using the TN Death Certificate and TN Death Records database. Thanks for your great attention to detail and feel free to send edits.

Sorry it took so long to get back to you.
I am only distantly related to her by marriage.
Marvin Wallace was a 2nd cousin.
Her middle name Don can be found in marriage records to both Marvin Wallace & Matthew Legue
Also in the SSN application & claim index. Her father's name was Don.
Apparently she was divorced from both at the time of her death and had gone back to using her maiden name.
She married Matthew Wade Legue Jan 18,1974 in Gibson Co, TN
She married Marvin Henry Wallace Jr Aug 14, 1979 in Robertson Co, TN
In her obituary one of her daughters is mentioned as Keisha (Legue) Fry
I hope this information helps. Dont hesitate to ask if I can add anything more
