    Date: Thu, 10 Jan 2002 From: "Michael Huff" <>
    Lillie Blanche Wilbanks Ghormley Wilson, my grandmother, was the daughter of Jesse and Georgia Puckett Wilbanks. I believe that Lillie's Marriage Application with Michael Abram Ghormley dated January 19, 1903 states that she was born July 30, 1888 in Texas. The Denison, Grayson County, Texas Oakwood Cemetery records show that she was born July 31, 1885. What records from Blum, Hill County, Texas show her birthdate as July 31, 1887? Jesse Wilbanks was the son of Gardner Wilbanks. Georgia and Jesse Wilbanks are buried in Tahlequah, Oklahoma. Are you related to any of these relatives of mine? My father, Frank Mike Wilson, was the son of Michael Abram Ghormley and Lillie Blanche Wilbanks Ghormley Wilson. They divorced and Lillie married a Mr. Wilson and my father took his last name. Thanks for your reply.

    19 June 2003 from Michael
    Mother said that she thought that Lillie was married several times. Apparently she and Mike's father divorced shortly after Mike's birth in 1907 and she married a railroader and moved to Denison, Texas from Muskogee. Even though Mike took his stepfather's name of Wilson, on his social security card application, he stated that his father was Michael Abram/Abrams Ghormley.
    If I recall correctly, I saw Mike's mother, Lillie Blanche Wilbanks Ghormley Wilson, maybe three times in my life. I was about nine when she died in Denison, Texas. I lived in Muskogee, Oklahoma at the time and did not attend her funeral.
