Biography
From his granddaughter Lisa Guidroz:

I wish I could tell you that I have more information to add to the family's history, but I don't. My grandfather (Guy Roland) had a stroke when he was in his 50's and died when I was a young child so he was never able to share any of his family's history with me. As I grew older, I longed to know about my grandfather and his people. He truly embodied the word "grand" in grandfather....he was a magnificent man and I absolutely adored him and was so incredibly sad when he died.

Funny thing, though, as I grew to adulthood and began to ask questions about his people, no one would talk about them...no one claimed to know much about them except that they were from Bearden, Arkansas. My grandfather had moved to Texas as a young man....all of his people were in Arkansas....and we never met any of them. By the time I was in my late twenty's/early thirty's both my father (Guy Rudolph Higginbotham) and my grandmother (Mae Lee Wright Higginbotham) had become ill and died. So there was no one left to ask....

Over these many years, I have slowly pieced parts of the puzzle together....and with the internet, it became somewhat easier.
