I am desperately searching for any information on Jo Ann Trusley born between 1932 & 1936 in Tennessee (or her family). Her married name was Jo Ann Lee and later may be/have been Jo Ann South. Her son is my step-brother that I have never met and have been searching for over 20 years. She and/or her son may be living in the southeast Tennessee area or near Carroll or Coweta county Georgia.
Jo Ann Trusley was the daughter of Gilbert Ebb Trusley Sr. (b. Jan. 1 1907 TN - d. Sept. 10 1960 TN). I am unsure of her mother's name. The 1930 census lists Gilbert's wife as 'O Bie', while the 1940 census lists her mother as 'Katherine', born about 1916 in Alabama. However, the date on the marriage record matches that on the 1930 census & lists Gilbert marrying Hazel H. Huggins (b. Feb. 3rd 1914 - d. Jan. 5th 1969) on May 27th 1927. Later records hint that Gilbert & Hazel were still married up until his death in 1960. Therefore, the census names 'O Bie' and 'Katherine' are highly questionable.
Gilbert Ebb Trusley Sr. was the son of Luther T. Trusley (b. bet. 1873–1875 Meigs, TN. - d. Aug. 8th 1930 Rhea, TN.) and Annie Brown b. 1891 TN. - d. ?). Sibling include:
Rector Dock Trusley (b. April 2nd 1904 TN - d. June 24th 1942)
George Nick Trusley Sr. (b. June 2nd 1907 TN - d. Nov. 5th 1948 TN)
Harold Earl Trusley (b. abt. 1912 TN - d. ?)
Arthur Trusley (b. abt. 1915 TN - d. ?)
James Trusley (b. abt. 1916 TN - d. ?)
Gilbert is thought to have had 3 children:
Jo Ann Trusley (b. bet. 1932-1936 TN - d. ?)
Betty Jean Trusley (b. abt. 1939 TN - d. ?)
Gilbert Ebb Trusley Jr. (b. bet. 1942–1948 - d. ?)
Any information anyone might have would be greatly appreciated.
