Meet the family for December 2, 2011


Bonnie Dobbs
is 112 years old today, born in 1899.  Bonnie is the 2nd wife of Ella and Mason's 2nd great-grandfather, Thomas Franklin Hulgan.  Thomas was first married to Della D. Berryhill who is Ella and Mason's 2nd great-grandmother and they begot Cecil Robert Hulgan, Ella and Mason's great-grandfather and Duard's father.  Della died in 1919 after having 6 children with Thomas.  The children were 3, 6, 9, 11 Cecil was 13 and Ina was 15.  Thomas needed help and remarried less than a year after Della's death to Bonnie and they begot 5 more children.  That is quite the crowd.


Jennie Grace Stanford
is 113 years old today, born in 1898.  Jennie is the boys' 1st cousin 3 times removed.  Her father is James Isaac Stanford, the boys' 2nd great-granduncle and 3/4 brother of Margaret Jennie Stanford who was born to Jennie Grace's sister Nancy Ann Kenley, the boys' 3rd great-grandmother.


Sarah Ann Naugher
is 183 years old today, born in 1828. Sarah is Tara and Calum's 3rd great-grandaunt, sister to Robert Marion Naugher Tara and Calum's 3rd great-grandfather.  Their parents are Joseph Naugher and Jane Ingram from Ireland.  Robert was born in Union, SC and married Mary Ann Reedy November 4, 1847 in Benton, Lowndes, Alabama.  They begot 6 children, the 2nd being Moses Service Naugher in 1851.  Moses' first marriage was to Sallie E. Savage who bore him 7 children.  She died in Cherokee county June 15, 1901 and he married Marriell Burrows sometime before their first child, Mary Zepho Naugher was born in 1906.  They had 6 children together.  So between the Naughers, Savages and Stewarts, that group has more than accounted for at least 1/2 the population of Alabama today.  Brent can't swing a dead cat with out hitting a relation.


Wilburn Butler
