I am trying to research my grandmother's family name of Isbell. She was born Alma Mae Isbell in Warren County, Kentucky around 1914, although later, she changed her middle name to "Louise", she said she always hated her middle name of "Mae". She had three brothers named Felix, James Elvis and Horace. Her father's name was Luther, called "Luke" and her mother's name was Virginia Edna called "Nettie". They lived on a farm in Alvaton, I believe, but most of their family was associated with Bowling Green, Ky. My grandmother raised me. She was the rock of our family. Unfortunately, she died in 2000 from complications of Alzheimer's disease. She was 84 years old. She wsa raised on a farm. Her father was a carpentar and farmer. She lost her mother when she was only 57 years old from some sort of "heart problem", not sure what. Her oldest brother, Felix, was murdered, something to do with a family still. Her middle brother, "Elvis" as he was called although his first name was James died from emphysema when he was in his 70s. I did not know much about her youngest brother who died in his 70s also. I recall her stories of being raised on their farm, it was approximately 500 acres or so. Her mother was a fantastic cook (as was my grandmother). She used to tell me how after church on Sundays, most folks would come back to their farm where my great grandmother would cook for everyone, while my great grandfather would give the men folks haircuts. I believe there are still Isbells in the Bowling Green area, but have not been in touch with them in years. If anyone has any information they would like to share with me, please feel free to email me anytime, I would very much appreicate it. I am trying to find out information for my own children who idolized their great grandma, Alma. Also, would like to leave a legacy for my granddaughter. Thank you!
