I am the granddaughter of Ollie Mae Trammell Whitley, d/o James Monroe Trammell and Martha Ellen Massey. I have not heard the stories about Johnny Sawyer and Lula Massey, but wondered about Martha's last name. Americus Trammell was my great-uncle and I think you did the research to find his lost family for him--Ollie and her children--just before he died. Would very much like to get in touch with you. Please email me at joannagentry@roadrunner.com.
