My great great grandfather is William Oney Hanshaw. His only son was William Lowndes Hanshaw. Who married Drula Jean "not sure of her maiden name as she refused to talk about her family" but those were my great grandparents and William or "Brownie" as his friends called him lived in to the mid 90s.... maybe like 97 or so. I will get you solid dates asap I just need to ask the family as I was young. Maybe 10 when he died. But his wife "Granny" as we affectionately called her lived until 2012. I was very close with both of them. As om sure you have learned W.O. orked for Santa Fe railroad and was also a talented carver. Some of my favorites of his are carved from peach pits. At any rate i would love to connect with you and see how if in any way we are related.
