Trying to find out when my grandfather Walter Scruggs was born.
I have written a biography on my mother. She did not have birth or death certificiates of her parents. She passed 3 yrs ago, there are no living siblings. I wanted to find out when my grandparents were born so that information in her my book will be as accurate as possible.
He was born possible around 1906 (a pure guess on my part). He and his parents lived in Franklin, Tennessee. My mom said that some people said that their last name actually was Brown and that they changed it to Scruggs.
He move to Nashville, TN and married my grandmother Pearl Freeman. They had 7 children, 5 of which lived. Joan Vanleer-Moore, the daughter of Minnie Pearl Scruggs-Vanleer and Edward Vanleer. I am 55 yrs old.
