This page is dedicated to my mother Lucille Buckland. Born Nannie Lucille Davis on September 3, 1921 in Tazewell, Virginia, she is the daughter of the late Altha Rudolph Brooks and Asa C. Davis; Granddaughter of Mary Sutherland and William Brooks.
Her first name “Nannie” was given for her paternal grandmother, Nancy “Nannie” Jessee who married Doctor Caleb Davis.
Heartfelt thanks to Jim Jessee for sharing his research. www.jessee.org Through this renewed interest in my mountain roots, I have discovered another family line of Brooks/Sutherland/Kiser. May generations to come find satisfaction in knowing from where they came.
All my love Mom,
