So last week my beautiful and wonderful Mother in law Winda (Viverette) Webb and said she had spoken to Great Uncle Tyree, her father's younger brother. On this last call she wished him a Happy Birthday but also found some new information. So according to the Viverette Reunion Booklet and some census records that Golean Viverette was not Alma Huddleston Viverette or Doc Viverette's daughter. Apparently, Golean was the daughter of Cardelle McCurdy Boler or Brown Williams. Now, Golean went on to marry and move to Illinois but whomever filled out her death certificate left a lot of information out. More to come soon.
