I seen the posting about William Garner. Some of the Poythress land is in Greenville Co Va Part of it was Brunswick Co at one time. Next to the Garners, Jarrell, Turners and Collier's and the Jordans.. And some of the Poythress?lived close to the Roanoke River close to the Scott's but they all are from the same family..But in the old records it was called Scott and Portiess Branch. Its on some of William Garner's land deed's
Poythress' owned a Saw Mill it was close to Emporia.. The Poythress who live in Wilson NC who own the Poythress Amusement ?Park are related to us as well.

some teams will be intrigued by the monster numbers Poythress is putting up in the
competitive SEC. Power is his calling card, but with a lack of great bat speed, there is
some question how well it will play at the next level. There's no other part of his game
that stands out, so someone will have to believe in his power to take him.
Wish we could get a fix on his family, they almost have to be ours given that Augusta
The one below is a tough slog but an interesting list of "sources." Yes, most of them
are alphabetical which makes it a tad easier. I painstakingly went through it one by one
for Poythresses and found none of the usual suspects.
"Old Surry" was interesting enough to read all the way through but it was entirely
anecdotal and a bit herky jerky as author Mr. Bohannon couldn't decide which war
he wanted to talk about. Of special interest were the pages about land Thomas Rolfe
inherited from his father-in-law.

They are pdf files. They are not indexed or searchable like the CDs we
sell but most are in alphabetical order.
go to "Free Small Books" in red in the middle of the page, click on
the word "here" ......then follow the directions.
And, I would love to know if you have a "find".
Due to Rootsweb's decision to close all mailing lists the Poythress group has moved to Groups.io/g/Poythress for continuation of the discussion list. The message archive (1997 - March, 2020) will remain accessible via Rootsweb.
