Burial*1936 She was buried in 1936 at Bowers Cemetery, Empire, Dodge County, GA. 
Death*3 March 1936  On 3 March 1936 Margot,Willie Anne & Reubin lived on Pete's place in a little house where the home place is. Your mom knows the place I feel sure. Anyway, she continued to stay there after Reubin left and there was talk that maybe some "hanky panky" went on between her and Pete. Now, that is just pure gossip from Jerry's mother that she was told. Don't know if Guyton told her this or who actually did. I just remember her telling me that Guyton's mom, Maggie, was jealous of Aunt Willie Anne because Pete kinda looked after her and her kids.
She died March 3, 1936 and is buried in Bowers (Mt. Horeb) Cemetery, Dodge County, Georgia.

WILLIE ANN DAVIS
Note*2003  Jimmy Lee and I have been working on some information about Nancy Davis, daughter of William "Bill" (Zacharias' son) & Lulla Davis. They had a number of children when both died in 1890, within 4 weeks of each other. Bill's brothers and sisters took 4 of the youngest children in. Nancy was farmed out to Reuben & Willie Ann Fair Davis to raise. She was about 8 years old at the time. Sometime before 1900, date unknown, Reuben seduced Nancy and she had a child.
In the 1900 GA Census, Nancy is listed as living with her brother and his wife, John D. & Edith Davis. She later marries Kinion Phillips in 1903. The 1910 GA Census does not list the Phillips family with any children born before their marriage date.

In the mean time, Reuben has been run out of town by Nancy's brothers and purportedly changed his name to Lee Johnson and headed South. In the 1900 GA Pulaski Co Census, Willie Ann is raising her family w/o Reuben. Her father, William Fair, has moved in with her.
This begs the question, did Reuben change his name to Lee Johnson and where did he go?
We do not know when Nancy's child was born, it's name or where it went. Since the child could have gone with any number of relatives, it will be almost impossible to find.
Any thoughts?

    I am a descendant of the Hollmeyer family. I am just beginning to delve into research into my family’s history and genealogy and came across your databases on RootsWeb.
    Also, in your information on Rootsweb, you have noted that Irene Buchert and Richmond Joseph Hollmeyer had a child, Margaret Hollmeyer, and that Margaret Hollmeyer married James Fish. James’s correct name is James Sanford FISK, Sr. James and Margaret are my grandparents. James and Margaret had 6 children, one of which is my mother. Likewise, James’ father was Harley B. FISK as well. I just thought I would clarify that for you.
    If you have any additional contacts, sources, or information you are willing to share about anyone in this family, I would be extremely grateful. I am trying to obtain as much information as possible so that I can construct an accurate genealogy of my family.

ZACHARIAS DAVIS
Birth*15 December 1920 Aaron Floyd was born on 15 December 1920 at Cochran, Bleckley County, GA. 
 He was the son of James Edward Floyd and Annie Jane Holland
MARRIAGE*19 May 1943 He married Odell (Nora Mae) Ingraham on 19 May 1943 at Bleckley County, GA. 
Death*5 December 2002 He died on 5 December 2002 at GA at age 81 He died after many years of decline. His daughters devotedly cared for him until the end. Fortunately, he was able to attend the family reunion in Novenmber and be at the ceremony commemorating the placing of the CSA headstone for his grandfather, Shade Floyd. 
Employment* He was employed by Gas Station Owner. 
Biography*2001  Aaron Floyd was the 11th of 12 children. He and Mary Floyd were born twins with Mary arriving first by just a few minutes. They were born on December 15th l920. In the year 2000 Mary wrote the following:We will hit our 80th year in December 2000. What a life!!!! Aaron and Mary were reasonably close as children, doing things together such as joining the 4-H club and owning a Steer each, which had to be pampered and taken care of to prepare them for showing at the *Fair*. We had an old wooden cart we pulled out to the corn patch and cut down many stalks of corn for the fodder to feed them. Aaron's was a deep
brownish red and mine was closer to a honey red. Because he was the boy he got the prettiest and nicest one and I got the one that had to have a ring in his nose he was so wild and mean. But we loved having them and had to work every day taking care of them. When it came time to show them off they had to be moved to stalls, along with hey to bed down on, to Macon, Ga which was 40 miles away. Aaron went with his and had to bed down with the Steer until the day of the showing, but being a girl I was not allowed to go with mine. We had a colored (Negro) family living on the farm and Papa always said (colored) because he thought that sounded a little nicer. Anyway, *Aunt Ann* as she was known to us, had two or three grown *strapping* boys and one was named Clayton who got to go with my steer and bed down with it. On the day of the showing I was allowed to get in the pen and hold onto the rope along with Clayton and because I looked up at this handsome Negro man and smiled someone in the audience said "look-a-there, she got her a negar boy friend". I will never forget that @#&*^<*@* which I thought was awful for him to say. (Shug's son Lucian stayed at his grand parents home almost as much as he did his own so as children we, and the entire family, treated him like a brother and he and Aaron were very close, so the two of them and me and LaVerne used to get into trouble almost constantly, between shooting cats with *Pop Guns* and making mud pies and swinging from trees we stayed in trouble with Papa. We were all making mud pies and needed some water so sent Lucian with a bucket to the branch (stream of water) that ran pretty fast through a sewer pipe under the road to the other side at the bottom of the hill. Well, he tried to sink the bucked by pushing straight down on it until it suddenly went under and pulled Lucian in with it. We children ran down the hill to save him and after pulling him out of the water proceeded to roll him in sand trying to dry him off so Papa would be none the wiser. Well, I am sure you can guess at the outcome of this little trick. Everyone got a switching. Aaron Lucian, and I would put LaVerne, who was all of 4 or 5, on a pine sapling we had pulled down as far as it would bend and let go just to see her flung back and forth until it had straightened out!!!Aaron and Lucian were playing down the road a ways late one evening after dark and would not come in the house to eat their supper. After many calls Albert decided to take a bedsheet and put it over his head and sneak up behind them. Those two boys thought they were seeing a *ghost* and really made tracks running home. In high school Aaron liked the prettiest girl in the class named Patsy. He always wanted to drive the car (ford) Papa had bought for us to drive to school in Cochran which was 5 miles away. Since I was Papa's pet he also knew I would be allowed to go visit Patsy if I asked Papa. My job around the house was washing up all those dirty dishes from such a large family, You guessed it, the only way I would agree to go visit Patsy was if Aaron helped me wash the dishes!!! Patsy got pregnant by someone and left high school and was considered not a *nice* girl and that was the end of visiting Patsy. Later I had a friend named Odell Ingram and visited her frequently and she did the same to my house where she and Aaron started dating and got married. As a young man Aaron got drafted and had to serve in the army. He was sent to Australia and New Guinea where he sent me pictures of native women wearing nothing but grass skirts!! During this time he went for a swim in the ocean and got cought in a riptide and before he knew it he had drifted very far out so began to swim towards the beach but became to tired he gave up on life and decided that was it he just could not go another stroke and when he dropped his arms they touched sand and that was what saved him. While stationed there he was radioman on a plane that had to fly out almost daily. One day a new Jewish fellow radioman wanted to go on that flight - the plane went down and was never heard from. So your Uncle Aaron has had two close calls that he told me about. After the war Aaron and Odell, LaVerne and Raymond, Mary and Hassan, Herschel and Annie and Bessis Lou and Lucian would all gather at each others house for spaghetti suppers (that being all any of us could afford at the time). After eating, some or all of us, played a card game called Red Dog which involved light gambling (just pennies or nickles). We had heard that Mama's half sister Aunt Eva or Aunt Ruby or Aunt Florence had discovered that way back in history there was a man named Humphrey, whom we promptly nicknamed Uncle Hump, who had lots of oil wells and no known relatives when he died and that the royalties from all this oil had been collecting with no one to claim it. It seems that one of our half Aunts had been working on it for years trying to prove that Uncle Hump was related to our Grandfather Holland. After a few card games and a few beers we would sit around and spend Uncle Hump's money. I remember Aaron was going to have milk piped in and silly stuff just like that. Odell died a few years back and Aaron has had a stroke but is doing good. Written by Mary Floyd.

Sine Sealed and delivered in presence of This 27th of October A.D. 1807 (Note: He seems to have signed this himself) Amos Floyd Witness Nathan Whitehead Wm. Whiless.1 
TAXROLL*1771 He was on the tax roll in 1771 at Bute, NC, A Bute county tax record lists Amos as the son of Thomas. This means that in 1771 he was at least 21 years old if he owned land making his birthdate 1750 or earlier. (I would say 1740 as he had to have time to earn money to buy the land.) The Amos Floyd (also in Bute County) father of Gilford Floyd, who was left an orphan at age 16 in 1803, could easily have been the son of Amos son of Thomas. Apparently the Amos Floyd who died in 1803 was rather young as he left an underaged orphan (Gilford age 16). Its possible that Amos son of Amos and father of Guildord was born about 1767. This falls within the supposed dates. Pure speculation, but worth remembering. 
CENSUS1790*1790 He appeared on the census in 1790 at Hillsborough District, Wake, N.C; Census shows Amos with a total of seven people. I found this in a family history at the Georgia Archives. He is in the Hillsboro District.2
Biography*27 October 1807  On 27 October 1807 at NC Amos appeared in county records. According to the Nash Co. N.C. Court Records (p.192) Amos Floyd and James Drury were witnesses in a lawsuit between Arch Hamilton and John Parker. They failed to appear and an order was issued to fine them according to act of assembly. This is only a small snatch of a person's life, but it gives depth to an otherwise lifeless name in a book.
A person's will often serves as a broader outline for a life. Will of Amos Floyd In the name of God Amen I am weak in body but sound mind and memory my will is that my just debts and fineral charges shall be paid. (Item) after that I want my brother Federick Floyd paid for all the troble and expence that he was at in my sickness.

Biography*1816  In 1816 at GA. At about the time that Amos Kinchen Floyd was born his father, Fed acquired 202.5 acres of land in Pulaski County, Georgia and then two years later he successfully drew for a land lot in Early County. (The Early County land was mentioned by Mourning Floyd when she later conveyed this original land to her son Washington J. Floyd.)
Until 1977 all of the Floyds in Pulaski County, Georgia thought they descended from this man,the pioneer named Amos Kinchen Floyd who came from North Carolina. It was not until finding of the Wardlaw family Bible maintained by Francis Mary Ann Floyd Wardlow that evidence emerged to prove the story to be only half true. It is true that many of the present-day Floyds in Middle Georgia are descended from the original pioneers from North Carolina, but those pioneers are Fed and Mourning Floyd, not their son Amos Kinchen Floyd.

Amos Kinchen was born in Pulaski County and it is likely he never saw North Carolina. In 1841 Amos Kinchen married Anna Luttia Mc Daniel and over a period of the next twenty years the couple produced nine children, seven boys and two girls. The children were: Frederick, named for his grandfather; Arch; Shadrach, named for his granduncle; Harriett; Amos, Jr; John J; George W. named for his uncle Washington; Mary Ann named for her aunt, Francis Mary Ann, and James Everette. Most of the Floyds living in the area in the later part of the 20th century can trace their ancestry to these children of Amos Kinchen Floyd. Amos and Anna Floyd were parents living in the very disruptive time of the Civil War. Three of their boys, Frederick, Arch, and Shadrach served in the Confederate Army. All suffered as a result of the war and none would ever own much land. Unfortunately, there are no records of their thoughts and feelings about this traumatic time. They survived the war physically, but what must it have done to them emotionally? We know no more than the official record describes, but from it we can start to imagine how difficult life was. The record states that all three Floyd brothers received indigent pension for their war wounds and service. The miracle is that they survived and produced us, and that many still live in Georgia and thrive as a result of their efforts. War hit the family hard, but it did not stop forward progress.
