Bio and Links
My name is Ashley Lida Gantt. I was born in Albuquerque, New Mexico. I am trying to research the Gantt side of the family, which i hardly know anything about. If you are related to any Gantt's, let me know and maybe we can compare information. I just recently started doing this, and it will be awesome to meet any relatives i have. My family is really big, so i know i have lots of relatives.

Hi Ashley,

So far, I have not found anything on your Grandfather, Clifford Alonzo Gantt Jr (other than what you have on Ancestry). However, I did find that your Great Uncle Royce's wife, Fannie, is buried beside him at the Fairview Memorial Park. I found her listed at
Gantt, Fannie M., b. 1919, d. 1970 Jan 27, Beloved Mother, date is interment date, bur. 69-19
Gantt, Royce A., b. 1913 May 28, d. 2001 May 14, Papa Beloved Father, bur. 69-19
I'll keep looking to see if I can find anything on your GF!

Best Regards,

RE: Sorrells family
Hi Ashley,

The information posted on the memorial of Pvt Bennett Walton Sorrells was not posted by me. I transferred the memorial to Sammy Boyd and he apparently added the information. I am not certain, at this time, if Richard Tully Sorrells is one and the same, but on my Griffeth/Griffith side of my family, there is a Rev Benjamin Brown who was married to Sarah Anne Griffeth, daughter of Robert Griffeth and Sarah Brawner. Their first daughter, Avelonah L Brown was married to a Richard Tullie Sorrells. The dates I have for Richard are b. abt 1805, d. abt 1880, and for Avelonah (which could be Evelina) b. 14 Jan 1810, d. 20 Dec 1890. This particular Griffeth connection is not a blood-kin connection but a branch off of my bloodline.

Best regards,

RE: Family?
Hi Ashley,

Yes, you are correct.

Bennett Walton "Wiley" Sorrels and Martha Clegg Sorrels were my wife's 3rd great-grandparents.

Her 2nd great-grandparents were William Reno McDonald and Emaline Dorcus "Emma" Sorrells McDonald.

Her great-grandparents were Rev. Henry Woodfin McDonald and Rosa M. Nix McDonald. Rev. Henry Woodfin McDonald was the younger brother of Sally Missouri Grady McDonald Gantt.

I have updated some of the memorials with additional information.

Thanks for contacting us,

Sammy & Lucy McDonald Boyd
