Jessie James Hollimon 1896-1984

Would love to hear from anyone that has a tie to this family tree . This had been a great experience for me , putting together this family tree. I am so happy to find relatives I never knew about . I have received alot of information and notes for this venture from Wanda ( Griffin) Smith . She put together alot of information her mother Ila Pearl ( Vandiver ) ( 1913-2002 )  had in her records of this great family. I appreciate all the time and effort that took . Information about the Hollimon and Portwood line came from family history and notes and information from Jessie James Hollimon ( 1896-1984 ) and Inez Maddie ( Hollimon ) Gray ( 1907-1987 ) . Wanda ( Griffin ) Smith also gave some information her mother had on the Hollimon line.  This help is greatly appreciated .
