Are you talking about the woman who was married to Horse Collins? She had several kids taken from her years ago and they were adopted out. John Rakestraw was one of them and Elizabeth Ann Cox (who was murdered last year) was one of them. Also Jackie Sherrill. I'd almost bet that is who you are looking for. I don't know how she spells her name but it is pronounced "Vonnie". She was living on the road off Z Hiway that turns onto the Noblett Rd.

I hope your finding works out! My "Step Great Uncle" (we don't say "step" in our family with him) went through the same journey only to find that his 4 siblings didn't want to reunite with ANY of eachother. He was so heart broke...but we all realized that not being blood doesn't mean we are not a strong and true family. If you find her and she turns away, keep your head high, remember there is a reason for everything and appreiciate what family you do have. If she welcomes you with open arms still keep in mind she did what she thought was best at the time and be thankful for the chance and love you have gained.

Good Luck and keep us posted, I hope it works out GREAT for you and yours!

Here's what I could find out: She moved to Sullivan. Her daughter's name was Marilyn Vermillion (was married to Craig Vermillion--they have since divorced). Yvonnie was living in a senior housing complex. Her last name would be Collins. She has a son named Larry also. Sorry I can't help you more but this is all I could find out. Maybe you could do some research and find out more.

I can confirm that Vonnie's name was Collin's. I attended her and Horse's wedding (they lived together for years before getting married)Horse, which I've always guessed is actually Horrace but never asked, is my father's first cousin. I knew shed moved but hadn't been in contact since she lived here in Willow. If you find your grandmother I would love to know and I wish you luck; I do not know if she is still alive. That also means we are a bit related (surprise in Willow huh lol).

Someone told me over the weekend that she saw Vonnie at the grocery store here in Willow the other day. Don't know if she's moved back or not. Will keep my ears open for you and if I hear anything I'll post it on here.
