Continuing My Father's Life's Work, Willis Bill Joyner's daughter, Martha

Well, here I am. I am finally making the step in continuing my father's life long work, tracing and recording his family tree.
My Daddy, was Willis Joyner, otherwise known as Bill. A good Christain man, who knew no strangers. Loved making music with his family, strumming his guitar. He was a man of the earth. He loved to make things grow.
My Daddy was born in Toombs County, Lyons, Georgia on March 29, 1926.
Daddy went on to Heaven on July 13, 2002 at home in Kingsland, Georgia with his oldest brother, Conealious Leroy Joyner and his oldest daughter, myself, Martha Anne Joyner Bedel near him. His wife, Alice, of fifty years and two weeks, and youngest daughter, Angela Thompson and only granddaughter, Sarah were just down the street when he was called HOME.

Daddy's father, was Lonnie Lee Joyner of Toombs, formerly Tattnall, county Georgia. Mother was Maybelle O'Neal of same county.

If you would like to know more, please contact me. I would love to share with you.

"Are you related to us, we're of Francis Bedel family of Indiana"

I married into a great family in 1981. My father-in-law, Francis Bedel, was a father of four sons and one daughter. Lived in Seymour, Indiana. Married a wonderful woman for over fifty years before he passed away. Francis had many brothers and sisters that I was told, but nothing was ever discussed about his mother or father.

I am researching this family to know more of the history to be able to pass on to my daughter one day. If you know of any information I would like to chat with you.
