Post that article. That would be an interesting read. Some of my homies/cousins from my dad's side are related to the Cheathams and other families from over there, and some of the Sho-lines grew up with us in West L.A. before turning Sho-line Crip. Their families are from over there, that's why they turned.

Very interesting... I;m sure that this is the same as my kids family, they mommas family are Hodnetts, this is a big family with old Cali roots, originally from Georgia and then Arkansas, came to Central Cali (Hanford and Fresno areas) in the 1930s before some moved to LA... I doubt if they know that they are related to VSLC, I'll dig deeper and update

Correction they came to Central CA in the early 1920s
