While indexing some old issues of Winston-Salem State University’s yearbooks tonight for the NCGenWeb Yearbook Index, I found another relative!
This time, I found Lossie Viola McNair (1923-2008). Lossie is a member of the 1946 graduating class and the yearbook shows that her nickname was “Mae.” Later on in the yearbook, in the “Who’s Who” section, it’s noted that she aids a Kindergarten classroom. And, as it turns out, she did indeed become a teacher. :-)
How is Lossie related to me? She is the half-sister of my 2nd-great grandfather, Abraham McNair. She was the daughter of Andrew D. McNair & Bennie Slade. Bennie was Andrew’s 2nd wife; I’m descended from Andrew and his first wife, Gracy Bullock.
I love finding these little nuggets of info!
