Hello! Not much is known about my grandmother's mother Bessie Faulkner, I have to guess she lived in Nashville,Tenn. as my grandmother was born there on 7/31/14, I don't know who she is kin to but it has been a mystery for many years.She married John Gus Callis(my grandmother). Bessie Faulkner married George Lekas..Hope you can shed some light on this. Thank you so much.
