I have ended up in Alabama. Until recently, maybe two years ago, I had no idea where my paternal grandfather’s family originated. I have, with much cooperation, found they came from Alabama…no banjo though. We knew little about my grandfather’s family, his dad left at a time when there was little work. My grandfather grew up fast in order to assist his mother. He had two siblings younger than he, and he quit school to help raise them. He later attended Oklahoma A & M university, and got a degree in Animal Husbandry. Somehow, they ended up moving to Florida. Perhaps there was another family member there as well. That, we may never know. Most of his ancestors too were form the area of Alabama, but, had migrated there form Georgia and tennessee. Then, later, it looks like they all went to Texas. Didn’t everyone?
