Mary Alice Gentry born in Pontotoc, Mississippi

Journal by pup8970

Mary Alice was my Grandma on my mom's side. She was born maybe somewhere around 1930's maybe in Pontotoc County, Mississippi. She was married to James Marion Winters who was born about 1928 in Pontotoc County, Mississippi.

Mary Alice died sometime around 1989 or later. She was living in Rockford, Illinois or somewhere closeby at the time of her passing.
Her mother-in-law was modell joyner (@ least I was told, by my mom, his mother's name was Modell and then I found a Modell Joyner on It said her husband was Samuel James Winters. Mom told me James Marion Winter's dad was James Samuel Winters. i believe these are my Great-grandparents, though I can make no connection to them and my Grandpa Winters.)

If there are any relations from Pontotoc County, Mississippi or Rockford, Illinois can you pleasehelp me find a connection or find the ones that are his family?

Thank you all, Maria

To whom it may concern:
My name is Ralph Lamar Winters, Jr., and I am hoping that you are still interested in finding more information about the Winters family. My Paternal Grandmother was Modell Joyner, and Samuel J. Winters was my Paternal Grandfather. Together, they had James, Ralph(Jack), George, Aaron, Mavis, Eunice, and Alice(Jewel). After their divorce, Modell(my grandmother) married a man named Ernst Karlson, to whom she stayed married until she died. My grandfather (Samuel) then married a lady named Catherine moon, to whom he stayed married until he died as well. Please feel free to contact me at 870-335-0718 at any time for further information. Your Grandfather James was my Father's brother. James also had a Half-brother named J.E. Ollison, and a step-brother named Larry Moon. Hope to hear from you in the near future, as I, too, am doing research on my family.
