Our focus is on one of the twins, Estelle Kinnard. As fore-stated, she was born
As Estelle grew up, a young man named Dan Crum caught her attention. They fell in love, and were later married. The product of their love and marriage was a little girl born on January 7, 1930. She named her baby girl, Hattie Ida Mae. The marriage was ill-fated and she later married J. S. Dixon. No children were born to this union; however, they reared four of their grandchildren and were known as momma and daddy to them. J.S.(Daddy) died in 1981. Estelle departed this realm in 1990 At the event of her demise, from this ONE baby girl, her progeny consisted of 9 grandchildren, 22 great-grandchildren and one great-great grandchild. To her grandchildren and great-grandchildren, she was known as grandmomma.
As aforementioned, little Hattie Ida Mae Crumb was born
