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
I’m pleased to share that we have another wonderful family group photo to share with you.
We have a 1940 photo of James David and Carrie Price Shephard Poythress and family taken in Meridian, Mississippi. I am fairly confident the photo was taken in the spring or summer of 1940 since my Aunt Dorothy (#4 in numbered version) is pregnant in the photo - her son Clifton, Jr. (Buddy) was born September 15th, 1940. And I believe it was taken in front of the South Side Elementary School across the street from the C Street home of Carrie and David Poythress.
There are 34 family members in this photograph — many are children and grandchildren of Carrie and David Poythress.
Earl Poythress provided a key so we have a second version of the photo with each person captioned with a number.
Below is a short link directly to this new resource page on the Poythress.org <https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__poythress.org_&d=DwIF...> website:
A couple of things:
1. If you click on the images you should see a large full resolution version you can easily download for your own uses.
2. It would be wonderful to hear from those of you with additional information about this gathering.
3. I would be very pleased to post additional family photos to the website, so please do not hesitate to contact me directly — we can clean up many torn or faded photos.
4. I am trying to address broken link issues on the website. Over the years of submissions we’ve had researchers share links and, unsurprisingly, things change. So, if you encounter a broken link on any of the pages I hope you’ll take a moment to drop me a note about the issue.
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.
