Grady's Obituary
So far, I don't have any children for any of his children, so I don't know the names of the 12 grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren he had at the time of his death. If you descend from this family or know the names of any of his grandchildren, send me a message, and I'd love to add them to the family tree.
