Researching My Southern Roots

"Who are their People? My grandmother used to ask me this whenever we discussed anyone. She wanted to know family connections.
Like her I want to know "My People". This blog is about that discovery.

52 Ancestors Week 15~ Azile

    How Do You Spell That? is the theme for week 15 of 52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks 2015 Edition.
  While many of my ancestors had interesting names, my maternal Grandmother Azile Juanita Daughrity Roberts Sullivan (1921-2009) may have the most unique first name.
   Pronounced aa-zuh-lee, she was constantly telling people how to say and spell her name. It was often confused with the Azalea.
 Her husband, Frank, used to tease her and call her uh-zil-uh.

  No wonder her sisters called her Sue!
