Paternal Grandmother
I have to start my autobiography off by saying I have no knowledge of my mother’s family and I have to apologize for having no interest in learning about that side of the family. This autobiography will be a reflection of my family related to only the paternal side. I will start with my father 's mother. My grandmother originally born Sheryl Lynn’ Ann Williams, now Sharon Williams, was born in New Orleans Louisiana. She was born on April 5th, 1949 and was the youngest of 8.

Her father remarried a woman named Clara.

Due to the dynamics of my mother 's side of the family, my father felt it was best that he was in my life. He tried to work things out but realized soon that my mother was not who he wanted to be with. In 1994, my father came to my brother 's house only to see burns on my arms. She ended up having a second by a man who no one knew, and my mother 's current boyfriend who fathered my mother 's next child, beat my sister to the point that she had brain deficiency. Not to mention my sister was 4 months premature. My mother did not want the abuser to go to jail, so she stated to the police that the incident never occurred. She was abusive to me, as well as promiscuous and began the custody battle for my sister and me. In 2000 he won the custody battle. Before the custody battle was won, my sister and I were “wards of the state” essentially orphans who had not been claimed. My grandmother took me and my sister in
