Happy Leap Day 2016!

We have an extra day this year. This day only comes every four years. Hope you enjoy your day!

On my family history journey, I came across two relatives who were born on Leap Day. One was my Great Uncle Nym  who's on my mother's lineage and a cousin Quitman "Danny" Fludd III who's on my father's side. Both have some interesting things about them.

Nym LANKFORD / LANKFARD was born on Feb 29, 1896 to Robert and Charlotta (DADE) LANKFORD / LANKFARD in St. Joseph, Missouri.

Nym Lankford / Lankfard
Nym was married to Hattie McDaniel, the actress. He also was married to Irene Graham and a German woman by the name of Gertrude.

Nym was and still is consider a part of the entertainer world because he was married to Hattie McDaniel.

 Thanks for reading.
