Hi Again Bryon

I like the sites you have created on the Durham families. As I read what I sent you in my last email, I forgot to tell that my father was born 22 Sep 1919. His mother, Mattie Lou, died 16 Dec 1937 in Dallas GA. Alfred and Dorothy got married 25 Jan 1941 in Gadsden AL. my 2 brothers, Jerry Lee and Charly Mack were born in Gadsden. GW and Mattie are buried in the Mt Olive Cem. in Dallas GA. GW had a 2nd wife by the name of Novella Patterson. Novella is also buried at Mt Olive.

We use to visit some of the Nolands in Rome GA when I was a little girl. Aunt Ora was dad's favorite aunt.

Here are some names of the family my dad wrote out the night Mattie Lou was dying

Reba Mae Tant, born 9 Jun 1924
Majorie Tant, born 26 Nov 1925
Henrietta Carter, born 11 Aug 1922
Edith Carter, Born 3 Oct1924
Charlie Jr. Tant, 15 Oct 1925
Robert Tant, 10 Apr 1929

This is about all I know about the Tant family.
