A friend, Tonda Downing introduced me to Kathleen Ann Yancey, daughter of Thomas Marshall Yancey, Jr. and Billie Hagler in 1971 while she was a junior at North Shore HS in Houston, Texas. Many of Kathleen's family and friends knew her as Kathy but when I first met her, she asked me to call her Tesha, so that is how I'll always remember her. Tesha and I were madly in love from the moment we met. There couldn't have been a more perfect match.

Unfortunately, my job took me to Corpus late in '71 and then Dallas over the next several years and so Tesha and I only saw each other on very special occasions. We corresponded thru the mail almost daily at first but then as time went by, we started to drift in separate directions. I married another woman in 1977 and so Tesha and I didn't communicate after that. Five years later, in 1982 Tonda told me about the tragic car accident that took Tesha's life. I was heartbroken and have never been able to let her go. I've been to her grave several times and will continue to see her as time permits. Even though I have been happily married for 44 years, I still think about that beautiful young lady, I knew simply as, Tesha.

About 1980 I met one of Tesha's sisters but cannot remember her name. I knew she had an older brother named Tom but I don't know where he is today. I spoke to her mother, Billie once after her death but I cried so much during our conversation that she probably thought I was nuts.

I wrote this note hoping it would find it's way to one of Tesha's family. I guess just hoping for anyone who might have a picture of Tesha that they would be willing to share.

I still love Tesha and still feel partly to blame for her death. Until I die there will always be a place in my heart for that beautiful young soul.

RIP sweet darling!

My parents/grandparents are deceased so I'm having a hard time trying to go from memory. I remember the names Howard Yancy, a saxophonist; A.V. and his brother Willie Yancy would visit us from Chicago during the late 50s thru early 60s.
Also, all old photos were destroyed years ago.
Help!

Yes

Through DNA (my paternal great aunt's), as the family historian and genealogist, I have determined that John "Clayborn" Yancey is my 6th ggf (great aunt's maternal 4th ggf). I am still in the process of finding out the child and his grandchild is that connects to us directly. We do have GED Match kit #s.
