      Hello Cuz,

      I will not be able to call you until after probably 6:00pm today or tomorrow morning which ever would be better for you just let me know.

      As for the particulars here goes:

      Nova Mae Hennessee Green Hardin married George Alfred Green (AlfredPeyton)

      Children:
      Anna Nadean
      Bobby Ray
      Jesse Lee
      Retha Marie
      Patricia Lynn
      Joyce Fay
      Boyce Ray
      Florence Edith
      Kathy Louise(your Mary Francis)

      I am Joyce's daughter.

      It has been so hard to do any research because this end of the family isn't much for remembering names. It is so cool that we connected because I have never met anyone from my grandma's(Nova) side of the family. I guess you could say I was always the nosy one that would rather stay in the house and listen to the aunts talk than go outside and play. So I knew stories that my cousins didn't know unless I told them. Getting any information out of them was like pulling teeth.

      I can give you any information as far as Nova's children and grandchildren and great grandchildren that you need. If you need any information just let me know.

      Also tell me how am I related to you? Would you be my Mom's first cousin or what?

      I have to get ready for work now but I will definitely be calling you.

      Judy

      Thank you David soooo much, I never would have made it that far...Nova Mae Hennessee Green Hardin was my grandmother. I thought I would let you know that three of Nova's children have died.


      Bobby died January 3, 1992 of a car accident involving a train.

      Joyce (twin of Boyce) died June 21, 1994 of a car accident in Newport Arkansas

      (Anna) Nadean died May 30, 2001 of liver, lung and brain cancer.

      I also have a question, where did you get that the youngest child of Nova was named Mary Francis, I was always told by my mother (Joyce) and other relatives that her name was Kathy Louise. You gave me information that I never knew it was so awesome to see that. Do you have a way to contact Ada's daughter Juanita, I would love to speak with her since I live in Fenton, MO which is about 45 minutes south of Florissant, MO.

      I would love to see if she has any pictures of relatives that she would make copies of for me. My uncle (Boyce) received my grandmother's photo albums and he won't let any of them out of his sight.

      Any other information you have or pictures that you have that you could scan and send to me I would appreciate it. If you would like I have some pictures that I could scan and send if you would like.

      They are of Nova's kids and her husband Andrew Jackson Hardin(deceased) I noticed he wasn't mentioned in any of the listings you had for Nova. He is the one I considered my grandpa, not Alfred. I only met Alfred once when I was little and I didn't like him. He was not a very nice man, he was an alcoholic and a womanizer. I have stories that you wouldn't believe.

      Well I guess I have rambled enough, I would love to talk to you over the internet...where are you located? If you would like to chat I have Yahoo Messenger and my name for that is cuteinsassy.

      Thank you very much,

      Judy Schmidt
