I am seeking information on my mother’s side of the family. This is all the info that I have so far. Can anyone help me? Please email me at : firstname.lastname@example.org
My mother was Eunis Emily TERRY, born 12 March 1920 in El Paso, Texas. My mother fell on a pair of baling shears as a child and was blinded. In the 1930 census, she was a student at the Arkansas School for the Blind. She had a twin sister, Ethel, who died as an infant or young child.
Her father, my grandfather, was John Edward TERRY, born 2 Oct 1889/1890 in Teague, Freestone County, Texas. He died 5 Jun 1969 in Amarillo, Potter County, Texas and was buried in Llano Cemetery, in Amarillo.
