HER MOTHER WAS THELMA CRAVATT. OPAL WAS LISTED ON 1920 CENSUS AS OPAL CRAVATT. THE NAME SHE USED ON MARRIAGE LICENSE WAS OPAL R HARRIS . SHE LEFT AND WENT TO CA WHEN MY DAD WAS 18 MONTHS OLD.

I WOULD VERY GRATEFUL IF SOMEONE COULD HELP ME BY TELLING ME ABOUT HER. IT WOULD FILL A WHOLE IN MY HEART. I DONT CARE ABOUT THE REASONS SHE LEFT AND I DONT WANT TO PAY THEIR PROBLEMS.
