May 16, 1937, a fateful day for Mama's children. My Mama was a kind, generous woman. She was not hateful and mean like her daughter that resides along the red dirt road.
I got my Mrs. O book from the library. When I get it read, I am taking it to Patsy.
Betty wrote that the white Shields man had been identified as the father of Dolphas Shields by DNA tests. I know that, but, a descendant of Parnell would have had to have been tested to prove that Parnell was a grandson of Dolphas. I have found the identity of one of Dolphas's descendants that was tested and she is descended from a daughter and had no idea that she even had relatives in Chicago, let along Presidential relatives.
After I read the book, maybe I will have answers, but what I suspect, from what I have read online about the book, I think I will just have more questions. The line is supposed to go from Dolphas to son Robert to grandson Parnell.
I wish you all clear skies and sunshine tomorrow. We are supposed to get ice tonight.
