I am looking for any info on my paternal side of my family....I've seen some familiar names tossed around here and would like to learn more. My father Gleece Hancock, was the 2nd oldest of 5 children born to Essie (Lamb) and Arcenaure Hancock in Casscoe AR. Essie was a child of Allen and Rilla (Hogan) Lamb. According to my dad, Rilla was part Choctaw. I've recently uncovered that Allen's parents were Micajah and Aggie Lamb...slave owner and slave. Feel free to email me or answer here if you have some info. If I can load the picture I just took, it is the page of Family Records in the "funeral book" of my uncle Matthew Hancock. He was my dad's younger brother that passed in 1961 at the age of 37. My dad's oldest brother died at the age of 5-6 from pneumonia after their family moved to Chicago.
