I would love to find more information on my fathers mother Mary Vinson Drake

Question by cherln

I have heard some awsome stories about my fathers mother, I have been told she was decendat from the line of Sir France Drake, and I was even told she had entered my name in the family Drake Bible, she was born in Mississippi or Lousianna, she married James Drury Pulliam and they had sons: James Drury, Curtis, George, Charles. Grandma uses to tell me stories about high tea with the Lady Bird Johnson and all the ladies were given bird names hers was Lady Blue Jay. She spoke english and french. I grew up knowing about Sir Frances' bible which held the names of our decendants and the bible could only pass to a Lewis Fraces and my father was the last, my father did not talk much about it, I remember an uncle Lewis which I beleive he lived in Houston, he was the holder of this great book while I was growing up, and he told me that it was on loan at the Smithsonian Meusum. But since my father never would talk about it none of children know much about it or what happened to it and my Uncle did not have any children of his own except one adopted son, and I do not know his name. I would also love to have information on James Drury Pulliam I,II, III. My father did not talk much about his brothers either.
