    William Larry McCord the paternal grandfather was the son of James Broadus McCord (1903-1972) (GA) and Edna Pearl Martin (1902-1985) (GA). Edna was the daughter of John Milton Martin (1873-1960) and Mary Ann Fortner (1876-1940). Paternal grandmother was Peggy (Thomas) McCord, the daughter of Lee Sanders Thomas (1909-1992) and Etoyle Haynes (1910-2000). Lee was the son of Henry Lee Thomas and Mary Elizabeth Bessie Persons. Etoyle was the daughter of David Mathis Haynes and Bertie Mae McGarity. Bertie was the daughter of Gardner McGartiy and Laura Ginn. “McGarity” and “Ginn” are Irish surnames so Irish should be added to the ethnicity.

    Also are you sure Roy Garday is her grandfather. The only Garday I found in Bryan County, Georgia is this man

    and I’m not really sure even he has anything to do with her family.
    I can’t find Roy past 1940.

    Her grandmother’s name is deffinitely Gloria, though.
