[LA] Grandmothers family-Mclendon
I trying to find out any info about my g-mothers mother and sisters and haven't had much luck.My great-grandmother name was Susie Mclendon, g-grandfather name was Jessie Mclendon.They had five daughters names where Nancy,Leola,Laura(my grandmother) Hattie and Tanzi(aunt doll).
I don't remember if there where any brothers if there where they may have died as infants. Children as far as I know where born in LA. This is what my mom told me years ago.She also told my that they where part choctow indian. Three of the sisters died pretty young I never knew them.
Nancy, Leola, and Hattie from some type of stomach cancer.I do know they where very petite people in height ranging from 4.8'my g-mother laura. nancy,leola, and hattie were 4.10' and tanzie 4.11,the tallist.g-grandmother was the same or an inch shorter then my grandmother. I've search though quite a bite of material including some of the indian scrolls and I did find the name susie mclendon but I was unable to get more info.I think they moved around quite a bite because I was able to find my grandmother after she married my grandfather Frank Burks(Laura) along with my mother and three of there other children living in Bossier,LA about 1904 in the 1900 censes.
I also found a Susie Mc in Rapides LA.1875 and 1908. Jessie Mc in Quachita LA in 1892. I don't know if this is them or not. Im still searching for more info. All the old ones in my family have passed on including my mom.With the exception of my aunt Ernestine who memory is not what it use to be. She did tell me that g-grandmother died in the 1930's possiably in Ashley Arkansas,another place they lived in also Lincoln La, and Richland La and Natchitoches. I would appreciate any info anyone could give me. I hope what i've written makes some sort of since and noy confusing. Im new at this so please bare with me.
Thanks to everyone!
