Maternal great grandmother information!

79 views
I am looking for any information on my great grangmother Lula Mae (Hester) Thomas 1893-1952, her mother is Sara C Hester and she was married to my great grandfather Henry Clay Thomas, May 13th- Nov. 20, 1970. They are buried in Union Hill Needmore Cemetery Blanche/Cherokee Alabama. Any information would help, from what my mom tells me she passed when she was 9-10 and she was a very quiet lady and she really didn't know much about her.

You have a marriage year of 1970, but she died in 1952. Did you mean 1917?
I'm sorry, I was putting my great grandfather fob of birth through the year he passed which was 1970.

She is here with her parents in 1900. Listed as Luen Hister (sic). The William and Sarah Hister (sic) listed just after Lula's family are her father's parents.

https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:M98F-JJQ

The 1940 US Census has Lula Mae Thomas as the wife of Henry C. Thomas.

In 1900 she is shown as the daughter of Richard R and Anner M Hester.
