This is my grandmother. My father was Robert Lee Pierson, mother Phyllis Peters. I married Greg Voliva and have two children Mitchel and Matthew. If you are building a family tree from Iva and would like to include our information, please contact me. Do you have information on Iva’s mother Rebecca Estep and her heritage?

I have lots of info on Iva Davis and pictures to share. My grandmother Mary Adra Lee Davis was Iva’s sister.

I would be interested in any information you have about the hammond(s) family. Unfortunately my grandfather died when Daddy was 14 months old and my g grandfather died when my Grandfather was only 2 years old. I would be interested to know if Kemp Hammonds was related to Anderson Hammonds m Nancy Williams or to William Hammonds m Julia Ann Jenkins. Thank you for any information you may have or if you could direct me anyone who may have information.

Thanks. Barbara Gamble is my great-grandmother. Dorothy was my grandmother – Ethna Pearl was my mother.

Correction to my previous post for Barbara Hammonds Gamble: Barbara’s Mother should have been listed as Cordelia Hammonds.

I just found your question. I don’t remember if I answered or not. John Gamble was my great grandfather. What questions do you have?


Nancy F. September 2, 2015 at 6:38 pm

You are welcome, Glenda. Barbara Gamble is also my great-grandmother; Pearl Spears is my grandmother. I am happy to share if I have anything helpful to you.
