How come we never hear about any of the other family members beside pasty, but the other presleys??

Don't know, I've asked that same question on here also......would love to know the answer to that one. From Missy we know Lisa has nothing to do with the Smith side of the family (Gladys side) which suprises me. But then again, Lisa never knew her grandmother -however she did know her Uncle Billy and family.

This is the last interview I know of by Billy Smith .
http://www.elvisinfonet.com/interview_billysmith_part1.html

I think many of the Smiths and Presleys are dead.

I hadn`t really thought much about this until I came across the piece in the first magazine of the D`Agostini series.....interesting piece about "Doll" Smith..Gladys` mother..very sad....strange that with the millions of pages written on Elvis that so little is written about the lesser-known family members....

It's just never been a subject of discussion most places.

It seems we talk about everything else besides elvis family. Very curious about them.

The reason the family is cut out?

Well that's fairly simple it's Priscilla and also due to the fact that Elvis only really kept very close family around him and not his whole extended family.

There is still quite a few of them around, Priscilla made her feelings about there involvement with Elvis's estate when she left Billy as a tour guide manager when Graceland opened to the public and didn't promote him.

Anyone think Elvis would have treated Billy like that?

Not likely.

Lisa is blindly following her mother's lead and from where im standing she hasn't learnt to be objective herself......she doesen't bother with her dad's family except for Patsy.

I am dissapointed that any kid of Elvis's could behave like that.

Me too Jen..and Priscilla's background is never covered to any real extent. I'm most curious about that and can never get much information.

We get some glimpses of Elvis' side of the family, but not much on Priscilla's.

I really enjoyed that interview with Billy Smith. He clarifies quite a few questions and I tend to believe what he has to say.

Most of them have since passed away, and Lisa and Pris send flowers instead of attending, presumabley for security and media reasons? I think Lisa knows what she has been told and I cannot fault or blame her for that, plus she didn't know the whole family, I think Billy and Gene were only Smiths (other then his parents and Patsy's parents) that were @ Graceland, by all accts. Elvis tended to keep most of them away, due to alcoholism and other family issues, heard he felt that they were around only when they needed or wanted something.

Gene passed a way quite a few years ago. As far as close relatives that were around Elvis were Billy and Patsy.

Why is Patsy still close to Pris? Because she doesn't rock the boat and contradict her "history", etc...

I agree...I think Billy got a very very very raw deal, not just from Pris but from Vernon as well. Elvis wanted him to have the trailer out back of Graceland and Vernon did not follow thru, just kicked him and his young family (2 little boys) out, to me that is just sick. Pris just went a step further. And now they are waaing about Billy having written a book, or in on it, Patsy included, and I'm thinking "really? and what have you all done, Pris included? How is it ok for that family to do what they want and call it a "labor of love" (Please) and nobody else? By their own definition they are no better then the MM.JMO.

Heck no Elvis would NEVER have treated Billy in such a manner. I think he would have kicked whomever's butt if they had remotely tried to offend Billy in his presence.

My opinion on Stanley's: full of it, w/exception of Ricky Stanley and reason I say this is because he remained quite close to Pris and Lisa as far as late 90's but then he made the huge error of repeating something he and Lisa spoke of and what Pris had said to him, right after that he was no longer welcome, even though what he said was not anything bad. JMO on why that relationship soured.

Suzan
10-29-2007, 07:33 PM
Presley31, what makes you think Aunt Delta, w/her health issues and drinking problem would have been a good candidate? Vernon obviously did not think so. Yes Vernon was ill at the end but he was not out of his mind, I so dislike reading that excuse, he was not stricken w/Alzheimers or any such thing, he had heart problems, not mental incapacity.
Elvis should have been specific in his instructions, as to whom was to be in charge and what was to happen should his father not be able to oversee Lisa's inheritance, in case he did not make it (Vernon) to the time Lisa was 25, but like someone said, I don't think Elvis thought seriously, that he would die. And if he did then maybe he thought his dad would do the right thing and didn't even enter his mind that Vernon would leave Pris in charge.

I suppose there are cousins out here . But, who would believe any of them?
People "put down" the known ones . Not sure anyone would allow any of the unknown of them to speak.
The many lawsuits EPE have had concerning the use of Elvis' name , plus the many that would try to dis-credit them -- not sure I'd even want mixed up in the craziness.
I'd say any that's still around would just say "the heck with it "

Hi Tony!:D

I don't think she was ever a Presley, she put that in there so she could bilk the fans of money.
Her mother Nash was Vernon's sister.:D

Suzan
10-29-2007, 08:26 PM
Nash Pritchett she is the one Elvis gave the Gold piano to, and in the documentary for Showtime "Elvis Presley's Graceland, hosted by Priscilla Presley" in 1985, she was interviewed about that in the pasture of Graceland, I guess she was a pastor or something, in a church and Elvis gave her the piano.
Last I heard, Donna and her husband Buddy were arrested for all sorts of crimes.

Elvis had his choice made but Vernon though Priscilla would do it better or whatever I think, for the sake of Lisa.

Thanks! :D I'd forgotten about that part! Totally slipped my mind.
And you are correct Pris didn't even enter his mind, so why Vernon chose to go that route I don't know, he should have left it as the second paragraph, though maybe like you said, he felt she would be the best for it as she was Lisa's mom.
I wonder why Elvis didn't think of Pris?
I read in Child Bride that Pris really worked on Vernon to get that post and that she made some rather rude and mean comments about him to her friends and family prior to his death.

Maybe because the MM are right and Priscilla has exagerated his place in Elvisī life and heart after she left.

I don't know the Presley's side well. But there are plenty of them and then there are tons of second cousins. The Smith side is this. Gladys's two brothers were Travis and Johnny Smith. They married two sisters (those sisters are my MIL's sisters-maiden name Ivy-mother and father Thelma and Ira Ivy) Travis married Lorraine and Johnny married Lois. Travis and Loainne had Billy and Bobby. Bobby committed suicide by rat poison. Lois has Jackie, Nickie, Janet, Brenda and Tony.)all still living)So all of Lorraines and Lois's children are my husband's cousins. Travis died. Lorraine died in 88 (Lisa did not attend her funeral or nothing) My MIL died in 98. Lorraine was 14 and Lois 15 (I think) went they married into the Smith family. Lois divorced Johnny. Elvis wasn't as close to Lois's kids as he was Lorraine and Travis's. Johnny was wacky. Lois wrote a book called "The Forgotten Family of Elvis" but it thus far has not a good sales. I asked her how she was able to use Elvis's name. She said because it is for the most part about her, Johnny and family. Maybe Pricilla doesn't know about it??? Patsy left EPE, and she has a web site for fans.

You are very welcome Cameron, I think it's important to remember all of them. They were a part of Elvis's life. I took care of Grandma Thelma for some years. What a stitch she was. (all grew up in Tupelo and went on to Memphis for work) When I asked her about Elvis she always called him a little rascal. My gosh though, the colorful stories she told me about the old days in Tupelo. Stories were of share-croppin and pickin cotton (kids too, till your fingers would bleed. Sharin what ever you had. If someone had picked a bushel of greens or peas the women would sit and get them ready and share them. Putting cardboard in the kids shoes cause they couldn't buy them any more. But I think it really makes me understand some things about Elvis's roots.

I remember some of my grandparents talking about that time. It was pretty bad.Mine lived in Texas ,but I guess it was the same everywhere .
We certainly weren't rich by any means either when I came along,but it was "getting better."
Maybe, it's why I can relate to how Elvis was raised too. Some of it was "the time" ,some things "you just kept to yourself." Family was more important back then, it seemed.

She worked in EPE for years.......she knows hes bogus and she was buddys with Donna "Presley" as well.

Her integrity is in tatters in my opinion for those two friendships.

Jerry cons money out of people for his "show" and Donna has apparently conned people out of money for "bogus" memorabillia.

Patsy should have known better.

Everyone has tried talking to Patsy about Jerry.

All she need do is get out a family tree see how far away from Elvis this ***** is and then talk to Elvis's friends about the fact Elvis didn't know the guy.

The late Harold Loyd had at least one son, Roger ... who, wouldn't you know it, has written a book (Growing Up In The Shadow of a King - what a title! I mean, come on!!) on his relatively tenuous connection with Elvis. Sure, they were cousins, but they were not close.

I've heard him ..on his site. He's not bad actually. But, he's no Elvis.
His site is "under construction" now.
He did have a letter on there from Parker though.
Also, Elvis' funeral..though I think he said he really never knew him.

Gladys Presley`s mother Octavia Lavenia Mansell(nick-named "doll" beacause of her beautiful but fragile doll-like features married her first cousin Robert Lee Smith 1903,he supported them with a mix of farmwork and selling moonshine!... After the birth of her first child,the tubercular Doll took to her bed and remained there most of the time until her death at the age of 59.She had eight children during this time,the first five were girls,the last of whom was Gladys.......That is the shortened down version from the D`Agostini magazine for utmom2008......there is a nice photo of Doll and her husband with the article.
