V. Viola When John & Kizzie migrated to Missouri to join his brother James two of his children Jesse and 'Sis' stayed  behind.  Eventually some trouble over something called 'moonshine' led to Jesse joining the family in Missouri leaving Sis and her family as the only descendants of John & Kizzie remaining in Tennessee. 

Their three children [who lived to adulthood]: J. Fred, Bernice and Lurene remained and raised their families in the Lawrence CoTN area.  Two children died young: Berthie Marie and Martha Ann.Bernice, Lurene, Sis, Lawrence & Fred: Johnston

Joyce Reba "Dottie" Rambo

joyce luttrell ramboINQUIRY: I ran across this and was wondering if you would know if they were related to our family in anyway.     Mary Catherine Littrell-Cook

Response: Based on the Obituary information I have no Luttrell’s that I can connect to Joyce Luttrell. Her father, Vernon was probably born before 1916 (based on Reba being born when he would have been 18 or older. This would make him too young to connect to any Luttrell’s in Kentucky without knowing who his parents were.

In addition, Joyce’s birthplace, Anton, Kentucky does not come-up in a Google or map research as a town. The only reference I find to such a place is the Community of Anton, a community in Madisonville, Kentucky, located on Anton Road in Hopkins County.

I have no record of any Luttrell or Littrell Ancestors in Hopkins County, but Hopkins County was formed from other counties in Kentucky that we do have ancestors in: Henderson, Logan, Christian and Lincoln counties. Unfortunately, Hopkins was formed in 1806 and if Joyce had any ancestors in the area it probably was not the area that became Hopkins County.

To make a connection with Joyce we would have to have at least her grandparents information. Most of my research on the Luttrells-Littrells in Kentucky ends at the Civil War, so we would probably need information back to then. At this point I don’t see us making a connection with Joyce without the help of a family member of hers or someone taking her on as a project.
