I am looking for ancestors of my grandmother and grandfather. I believe my grandmother, Lela Frances Dixon was born in East Prairie abt 1901 and was married to Jennings Bryan Byrd. Her Parents were Laura Mayo and Andrew Dixon. Jenning's parents were Sarah Evans and Andrew Byrd. There are still some relatives living in the Charleston area, but they have not been much help with my research. Any information would be appreciated. Something that might ring a bell for some is my grandmother had a sister named Ruth Dixon who married Roma Turner who was an electrician? in or around Charleston. Again, any info would be greatly appreciated.
