Beginning March 2nd, 2020 the Mailing Lists functionality on RootsWeb will be discontinued. Users will no longer be able to send outgoing emails or accept incoming emails. Additionally, administration tools will no longer be available to list administrators and mailing lists will be put into an archival state.
Administrators may save the emails in their list prior to March 2nd. After that, mailing list archives will remain available and searchable on RootsWeb
Our condolences go out to his entire family, and on his behalf, we thank
them for his service to our country. A friend learned he was born 3 April
1931, so he died within one week of his 82nd birthday.
Apparently from his name, his father was named William F Poythress, however
his father was apparently NOT William Francis Poythress (son of Richard
Plunk Poythress & Ada Turner), of the NC area of Northampton County, since
the list of his children we've previously seen on our Poythress-List,
included a William Arthur Poythress and no William F "Jr."
I'd appreciate learning if anyone can point to the correct Poythress line
from which William F 'Bill' Poythress Jr, born 1931, descends.
As seen at Legacy.com, as published on ajc.com and in The Atlanta
