Looking for any info anyone may know about my family I know my Grandma's name was Sadie Turner lived on 18th and Angelique green house on the corner. My grandpa was William Roddie' I've come across a few Roddies in Indiana I did a small ancestry search but I'd rather ask my fellow citizens of St.Joe I'm sure someone knew them. Thanks and be safe Booker's...
