I'm trying to expand into my Grandmother Julia's family line, but haven't been able to get much information. My last resort would be to call or look at the local library's website in the county/city she was born, but thought I'd try asking for help here first.
Here's some information to help:
Julia was born in Childress, TX in 1918, and died in Havana, FL in 2002. My mother, Julianne, had a Grandmother who lived in Childress, TX, which I assume is Julia's mother. My mother (Julianne Tanner Talley) visited often during summers as a child, while her father (William Francis Tanner; my Grandfather) did Geology studies and research for FSU (where he taught Geology for about 60 years).
Julianne, her dad Bill, mother Julia and 2 brothers (Bill & Bruce) used to take several week/month-long summer trips with their parents, while her dad (Bill Tanner) did his Geology-related work in the field. They traveled and camped all over the US doing this every summer for a few years. Sometimes before or after the summer trips, Bill & Julia would drop their kids off at their Grandmother's in Childress to visit while they finished whatever work was left to do on that trip.
There should be some record of my Tanner/Rigby extended family there. Julia married William (Bill) Francis Tanner in her late teens or 20's (I assume), and moved to Tallahassee, FL where they both lived until both of their natural deaths.
Thanks in advance for your help in this matter!
