It appears from DNA that Levinia Frances Etherton is possibly my great grandmother. I am trying to figure out the connection and am looking for information about one of her children, probably William Elmer Penry. Could he have been working in North Mississippi between 1926 and 1930? My grandfather went by the name of John H Elmore and was born in Illinois between 1885 and 1889. I cannot find any record of him on any other census or anywhere so probably an assumed name. He returned to Illinois for a funeral around 1930 or 1931 for his mother and was never heard from again. I have been told that this man was tall with curly, red hair.
Would appreciate any information about this matter!
