I used to stay with her on Summer vacations when my Father would take us to see her and my Aunt Flowers. My fathers name was Elenore Leroy Hunt. I really don’t know very much of my Fathers side of the family! I’m a Disabled Veteran Due to Desert Storm. But, I would like to know if you any information about Him or the rest of his family? I want to thank you for your help!
