Hello, my name is Aurora Paterson. I am currently using my grandmother's account as she uses it more and knows more generally. I am a grandchild from her first marriage, who is the son of Virginia Etta Mae (née Barbee) Through census records, if you still have the question of who Melvina's parents were, I have found that her father was Newton Johnson (1802-1877) and Mary ? (1815-1881). Sadly I have not been able to get back any farther, although some people with family trees put Mary's maiden name as Morris. I have not found a record of that being the case, though.
