My name is William Dempsey CORNELIUS,Jr.Born June 16th,1948,in Jasper,Alabama.My father,William Sr.,was born in Alabama,got a football scholarship to Auburn,was interrupted there by WW11,came back,and finiished playing football,and graduated,there.He was a head football coach for appx.10 yrs,and then a vocational agriculture teacher in high school,until his retirement.He passed on 2 yrs.ago.My aunts,his sisters,are dead,too.Their names were Connie,Lucille,Willie and Ruth.Connie and Lucille were lifelong nurses at Lloyd Nolan Hospital,in Birmingham.My grandmother's first name was Lucille,too.Grandfather's name was Slyvester.Grandfather's family came from Blount county,Alabama.
Only 2 cousins on my Dad's side,Anthony Shumaker,Ruth's son,and Edward Culbreth,Lucille's son.Not any more information,I can recall at this time.

I am new to this.My Father's surname,Cornelius,from Blount county,Alabama.My year of birth is 1948.Born,Jasper,Alabama.Dad's sisters were Connie,Lucille,Willie and Ruth.Anyone have any info to get me started?

If so,I would appreciate it.I don't even know what to do,but will hunt and peck.
