Jamie, I know a lot of people research the Baxley News Banner when doing genealogy searches, so I would like to ask if you could make a correction in the obituary notice of my uncle, Ernest E. Crummey. It states that he was the son of Willie Lee Crummey and Gladys White Crummey. Willie Lee was Ernest's oldest brother, my oldest uncle, who died decades ago. Ernest was the son of Willie Hubert Crummey and Gladys White Crummey. Thank you so much.
