Thanks so much, Nancy, for posting today the obits for the wife of
George Alexander Poythress, whose maiden name was Ella Mae Davis, and
for 3 of their children -- Alice M Poythress Cable; Harry A
Poythress; and Clair Poythress Boley Pateman.
To help more people be able to "place" this family, I'll mention that
musician George Alexander Poythress was born in May 1849 in
Petersburg, VA. His parents were Benjamin Poythress (b.1808 in
Southampton Co, VA) and Benjamin's wife Susan Mary Williams (b.1825 in
Petersburg, VA). Benjamin was listed by the Petersburg Census-takers
in 1850 & 1860 as a huxter or huckster [salesman].
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.
