She was a member of the Salem Baptist Church where the interment took place. Mrs. Causey is survived by two sons, Messrs. Jesse Holland, of Dudley, and William Causey, of Beehive, and two daughters, Mrs. James Sykes, of Dublin, and Mrs. Pusser.

Cause of Death: Bright's Disease on 24 May 1907. 
Married Name10 February 1858  As of 10 February 1858,her married name was Holland. 
PENSION*30 December 1862 She was received a pension According to the Compiled Service Records for the Eighth Infantry kept at the Georgia Archives, Josephine Holland filed on Dec. 30, 1862 a claim for Deceased officer and soldier for settlement in the office of the Confederate States Auditor for the War Department. It was reported to Comptroller 9-22-1863 under cert. # 9264 showing an amount due of $74.20. This claim was associated with the 8th Regiment Georgia Infantry Co. G Pulaski Co., Georgia on 30 December 1862 at Pulaski County, GA.. 
Married Name1868  As of 1868,her married name was Causey. 
CENSUS1870*1870 She appeared on the census in 1870 at GA; She has remarried and lives next door to her parents. Two children , Anna E. Causey age 3 and Lee Causey age 3 months are shown. Anna is not on the 1880. There is a Willis on the 1880 that could be Lee. Father disappears completely.6 
LANDCONTRA*23 September 1873  On 23 September 1873 at GA Lot 8 of the 22nd Dist was sold by administrator, to Josephine's brother, Jesse Donaldson. Witnessed by Coley Hartley and administered by J.C. Donaldson.7 
CENSUS1880*1880 She appeared on the Census in 1880 at GA; She is shown living between the homes of her two brothers, Mack and John. There is no sign of her second husband Charles or the two young children that could have been theirs ( Anna E. and Lee Causey). A search of the entire US index for the 1880 census did not offer a clue to their wherabouts. (There is a M. Charles Couse living in Atlanta in what appears to be a boarding house. He lists his place of birth as Connecticut.) Remember tha Josephine's father came from Connecticut so there could be a connection. In 1880 there are two children Willis and Martin Holland ages 17 and 4 who are living with her. They are listed as her sons but more likely are cousins.8

Directly beneath their names is Jesse Roland age 1. On January 26th this was confirmed by the following message:
Sarah Donaldson,Allen,Roland was my Great,Great Grandmother. She married Robert Allen and had Susan,Wm.C., and Emma. Then she married William (Mink) Roland. They had Jesse Frederick Roland (she's my Great Grandmother) Joseph Hanna Roland, Richard Roland, Lender Roland. They called Jesse, (Minky). Jesse Married a Dixon first then a Bagby, Finally James Eurasmus McNeal. They Had Francis Davis McNeal who Married Marvin Jones and had James Albert Jones who is my dad. Whew.....

Father*Nathaniel Drake2 d. b 1809
Mother*Delialah Floyd2 b. c 1750, d. a 1810
 Diocletian Drake was the son of Nathaniel Drake and Delialah Floyd.2 
Name Variation1809  As of 1809, Diocletian Drake was also known as Diocletian Drake Floyd He is called Diocletian Drake Floyd in his brother's will. The same will also calls Penuel Floyd his brother in law which I suspect means half brother not in law.

    HI!

    I am a DRAKE researcher and came here looking for information about Penuel Floyd.
    I see there has been some prior discussion on this list which I cannot find regarding a theory about Penuel and the Drakes.

    Penuel Floyd was mentioned in the 1785 Nash Co estate papers of Nathaniel Drake along with Delilah. An old family letter states that Nathaniel Drake married Delilah Floyd--of this I think there can be no doubt.

    I had assumed that Penuel must have been Delilah's brother, but perhaps from what has been posted he was her (natural) son.

    It gets more interesting, for Nathaniel Drake, son of Nathaniel, calls Penuel his
    "brother-in-law" and also mentions his "brother" Diocletian Drake Floyd in his will. This "brother" Diocletian was known as
    Dyer Drake and left descendants under the surname Drake. Based on this data I had guessed that perhaps Dyer was a natural child of Nathaniel Drake and Delilah Floyd born before their marriage. Perhaps there was more than one, if she had a base-born child named Penuel!! What if Penuel is a (sort-of)sound-alike for Nathaniel?

    Would like to hear more about the theory I missed, for I am trying to work out the Nathaniel Drake tree.

    Thanks.
