I didn't growup knowing my Paternal Grandmother. I met her only once. I held her hand for this picture and everytime I look at it I wonder why she wasn't holding mine. Her story: The Grandmother I Met Only Once.
In the search and research of my Pittman-Carroll-Marley-Leatherwood Family Tree, I have been able to trace back to my Paternal 5XGreat Grandmothers on three of the four Family Names.
