Eva Solomon (Carroll)

Eva Solomon (Carroll) and Emma Kate Solomon (Vann) were sisters.  Kate was my great-grandmother.  Eva was also known as "Sid Eva" and Mother Carroll. A big thank you to Sid Eva's great-granddaughter Marjorie Whitley for providing most of these scans. You can learn more about Marjorie by accessing her blog in the right sidebar.

Eva is Aunt Eva, Grandmother Vann's sister who lived past 100. She lived in Waycross, Ga. I believe--there was a big celebration for her 100th (Mother sending I believe one hundred dollar bills, taped together{maybe she just taped them for Grandmother Vann, but she was actively involved}. - Marilyn Espy McClendon, May 2010
