This Came Monday And Of Course Now I Have More Questions
My great grandmother
Ophelia T Jones Bryant
I have to start this post off by saying that my mom is so cool about me calling her about all my random genealogy questions. Thanks mom for putting up with me :)
SS-5 Application for Ophelia Jones Bryant
This form came on Monday and I have to say, I completely forgot that I had made a mail request for my maternal great grandmother Ophelia Jones Bryant's Social Security Number Application. I think I sent off for it about three months ago. Well anyway it's neat to see something that she filled out herself. Back in July of this year on my post, The Little Details Can Mean So Much, I mentioned how at last I was able to learn what Ophelia's middle initial T stood for. By doing a search for her in Ancestry.com's U.S., Social Security Applications and Claims Index, 1936-2007 , I found out her middle name was Thomson/Thompson.
There's always more questions than answers it seems.

That's the truth, more questions... more questions my dad gets sick of me too (giggle) but I keep plying away, and I love when he gives me random info off the top of his head and he doesn't realize he told me until I stop him in mid-sentence and say really, "My grand dad did what?" And then oh brother the questions begin! LOL!ReplyDelete
Have you tried finding her son in a directory to see if the address is the same as the one on the SS form?ReplyDelete
I used to love being able to go to my aunts for information. I only wish I started asking earlier so I could have gotten that far back information from my grandparents and my uncles and parents. Oh well, I am happy with what I did get!
