A Little Family History
Hi, all! These web pages are a work in progress and probably always will be since I will be posting and updating as often as possible. One of the next things I plan to do is turn this statement into a audi/video and repost it. Meanwhile, let me say that I started these page as a way of continuing the family News Letters. A little family history here: I was born Debra Goss, in Hughes, Arkansas to Bernice Sims daughter of Rosie Lee Hampton, daughter of Annie somebody (Annie would have been my great grandmother). My first hand knowledge stops at my mom's mom and since she never married I know nothing at all about a grandfather. And that's all I can tell you about that. I have a picture of this Annie and I will also be posting it on the family round up page. Anyway she was the mother of Bernise Harris and Rosie Lee Hampton and they also had a sister named Addie B. Lewis and several brothers. Bernise and Rosie's children for the most part were raised and still reside in Flint, MI hence the title "Grant-Hampton". Addie had a son named Harvey who lived in New York last I heard. One of the brothers, Louis has children who for the most part were raised and still reside in Arkansas. They also had a brother named William and I think he and my grandmother (Rosie Lee) were twins. I lived with "Uncle William" for a little while when I was a little girl just starting school. He was married and had a stepdaughter but did not have any children with his wife. This is the extent of my knowledge of the family ties.
I would like the generations after us to know more about their roots. I find myself straining to remember details of people who died early in my life so I know these details can easily become vague/forgotten. So bear with me as I take on this huge task of family tracking, pray for me and don't hesitate to share family stuff.
I will be posting pictures, videos, and slide shows but will always chose the material wisely and will not post anything embarassing EVER!
WE ARE FAMILY!
