Debbie, David and Robyn-
Merry Christmas to everyone. I spoke with David on Christmas and told him how I had grilled Jim and we had found Minniesâ€™ Social Security number.
Minnie Oneal b 18 Aug 1899 (Jim remembers that his motherâ€™s birthday was 18 Aug, and she was about 25 when he was born)
d Aug 1978 in Tampa, Hillsborough, FL (Jim knows that his mother died in Tampa)
Minnie Oneal SSN is 350-10-5211
On Christmas I grilled Jim some more.
I got lots of information. Where oh where to start?
Minniesâ€™ mom had a sister named Lizzie (probably short for Elizabeth).
Minnieâ€™s mom wore bifocals. One day she went out into the the town where she lived. She had to crose the railroad tracks to get where she was walking. She looked down the tracks with the bifocal part of the glasses. The train was way down the tracks, so she went to cross the tracks. She was hit and killed by the train. This occurred sometime around 1934-1937 around Bone Gap, Illinois.
Ok, Minnie is one of 7 children that James Leo Hardy knows of.
Oldest is Fred
Next is Minnie m Samuel Hardy
Unknown order Rawley
Unknown order Wilma m Ray Burroughs
Unknown order Marie
Youngest boy Ted (possibly Theodore)
Youngest girl Lillie m Vern (possibly Vernon) Shelby
Minnie Crawleyâ€™s oldest child is:
Ulysses Simpson Grant Crawley (known as Grant) b 1915-1920 m Mary. They had 9 kids. Last known residence is Gunnison, Colorado
Minnie then married a man with the last name of Fleming and had:
Ancil Lavone Fleming (Female) (NOTE: James Leo Hardy swears that this is the correct spelling of her name)
b abt 1922 m Oran Sharp. Ancil took care of Minnie until she died, thus she was in Florida in 1978.
Minnie then married Samuel Hardy and had:
James Leo Hardy b 1925
Samuel Joseph Hardy Jr. b abt 1928 Last known residence is Illinois
Robert Ray Hardy b abt 1931.
Samuel Joseph Hardy Sr. had three known children BEFORE he married Minnie Crawley.
The first child is (male, grandfather of Janet Walters) (Jim canâ€™t remember his name today)
The second child is Mary
The third is Gibb (possibly Gilbert) b about 1900
These three children were all born before 1924 and would have been born around Warsaw, Illinois.
