Note: Permelar was baptized 19 Aug 1900 in Broad River near Cherokee Falls, along with her daughter, Malinda Isabelle Westmoreland. I have copies of both of
their baptism certificates. They are recorded in the Church Historian Office
in Salt Lake City, Book 73ll "S.C. in Southern States Mission Record of
Members 1882-1941." They are listed as: Permuler Martin, and M. I.
In Sept 1996 while cleaning out a kitchen drawer, I found the following note: "Rena Christina Permelar Ann Rainey Ramsay(?) says Uncle Broadus. Aunt
Lacy says Permelar Tillie Ann Rainey Ramsay." Beneath this was 1. Martin, 2.
Ramsey, 3. Covell, 4. Williams, 5. Flannigan, 6. Golliverhood. On the back of this note was a note about the chair Christine Pruitt gave me that was owned by Permelar: "Chair made by Christine's great grandfather. Legs cut off so Permelar could prop her arms on table. Bottomed by Charlie Pruitt about 1948"
(The notes were in a 3x5 loose-leaf planning calander dated 1968.) I was
afraid to accept the above line because I wasn't sure it was the one Mama had
given me. She always said that as a little girl she agravated her Grandmother Permela by asking "Who was your mother, and who was her mother and so on; and Permela finally told her to memorize: First a Ramsey, 2nd a Covel, 3rd a Williams, 4th a Flanagan (from Ireland) and 5th a Golliverhood (from Ireland).
I had written down her list and lost it; but two weeks later, Vivian
found a paper she wrote in the 10th grade (abt 1934) that Mama helped her
prepare. The teacher had requested them to list their lineage as far back as
possible. I was relieved to verify the list I had found, but the spelling was a bit different.
