"Jerry" and Rebecca had two children, Sarah Hannah ("Babe") and Joseph Lee ("Bug"). Rebecca is buried at Old Bostick Hill Cemetery, Estillfork, Jackson Co., AL.

"Jerry" married a second time, after Rebecca passed away, to Martha Jane Pogue. He and Martha had 6 children, Mary E., Della, Walter C. (a daughter), Ida Frances, Richard Harvey "Harv", and Robert McDonald. Martha is buried in Pleasant Grove Cemetery in Plevna, Madison Co., AL.
