Ron's mother Selma Boyd Stallings was born in 1928. Her parents were Elbert (1893) and Jessie Boyd (1898) from Texas. Elbert is listed as a railroad laborer in the 1930 census. Her sisters were Norma Jean (1925), Audrey Bell (after 1930), Mary LaRuth (1920), Armenia (1918), and Wilma (after 1930). There was a brother too, whom Ron called "Big Don."

Mary Stallings (born August 16, 1939 in San Francisco) is an American jazz vocalist and mother of R&B/soul singer Adriana EvansMary Stallings was born in San Francisco, one of the eldest of 11 children in the Stallings family; saxophonist Ron Stallings is her first cousin. She grew up in the Laurel Heights district, where she still lives, and started as a gospel singer at the First AME Church.[1] Her professional singing career began before she graduated from Lowell High School. Encouraged by her uncle, saxophonist Orlando Stallings, she listened closely to the great jazz singers.

  1. I'm pretty sure Floyd Sr. was Ron's stepfather. His real father left when he was an infant and he never knew him.
