Charles Granville Way 52 Ancestors #5

I don’t know much about my grand uncle, Charles Granville Way. However, since starting on this journey, I found a couple of his daughters who have been so kind in sharing not only information, but the coveted pictures of his parents. On one occasion I happened to mention to one of the daughters that my mother remembered visiting them when she was a child. Not only did Granville’s daughter also remember that visit, she had pictures documenting the visit!

Charles Granville Way, known as Uncle Granville in my family, was the half brother of my grandmother, Louise Myrtle Haywood, aka Myrtle Elijah Way. He was born, if I have the dates right, on 28 July 1915 in Salado, Arkansas to Charles Albert Way and Mary Elizabeth Bridges Haywood Way.
