"I am a leaf upon a tree
whose branches lead direct to me."
Phyllis Owens 01/05/1998




My great, great, great, great grandfather is *William¹ GRANTLAND. He married *Susan DRAPER (daughter of David DRAPER & Elizabeth nee?). They had children to include *James¹ B. "JIM", Walter², William² D., John R., Thomas Edward², Lucy Jane, Eliza, Henry W., Ann M., Mary E. and Sarah E. GRANTLAND.

My great, great, great grandfather is *James¹ B. "JIM" GRANTLAND. His wife's name was *Mary Ann WINTON. They had children to include MARTHA, *ELSA O., LUDIE and IRA GRANTLAND.
(NOTE: I did have his wife's name as Liza. Since I posted this, I have been shown that his wife was named Mary Ann WINTON. Could he have been married twice? Liza doesn't seem appropriate as a nickname for Mary Ann. I believe that my Aunt Pauline has his wife's name confused with Mary Ann's mother's name, Elizabeth, who would probably been called Liza.)

My great, great grandfather, *ELSA ("s" pronounced like "z") O. (probably Ottis) GRANTLAND married *CLARA Elizabeth WRAY 02/01/1891. They had children to include Louis, *James Edgar "ED" GRANTLAND.

My great grandfather, *James Edgar "ED" GRANTLAND married Florence Eunice "EUNIE" BLEVINS (both buried Mt. Tabor Cemetery, Hartselle, Morgan County, AL). They had children to include James ATLEY, PAULINE, MARCILLE, MARIE, ROY, and *George Odis "ODE" GRANTLAND.

My grandfather, *George Odis "ODE" GRANTLAND was born in Morgan County, AL on March 6th, 1917. He married *Valerie CLAUDINE LYLE on April 26th, 1934 (probably in Morgan County, AL). They had four children to include Betty ZANE, Shelby JEAN, HAROLD Keith and *Glenda SUE GRANTLAND.

My mother, *Glenda SUE GRANTLAND was born in Morgan County, AL on December 15th, 1938 and died 12/11/1996 in Evergreen, Conecuh County, AL (buried Hartselle Memory Gardens, Hartselle, Morgan County, AL). She first married *LONNIE Verne OWEN on April 24th, 1956 in Corinth (Iuka), Tishomingo County, Mississippi. They had two children, *PHYLLIS Jeannae Kwanja and VONNIE Valeria OWEN. They divorced in 1961. She married second BILLY Elliott MCCUTCHEON (born 05/01/1937 in Morgan County, AL to John ELLIOTT and RUTH LUKER McCutcheon) in Trenton, Dade County, Georgia on August 23rd, 1963. They had no chilfren, but did adopt her oldest grandchild, Christopher Billy "KRIS" MERIWETHER, from her daughter of her first marriage, VONNIE, and husband, JEFF MERIWETHER. (Kris is now Christopher Billy "KRIS" MCCUTCHEON).

This is the end of this direct bloodline to me.
