"THIS MEMORIAL IS MAINTAINED BY A CLOSE FAMILY MEMBER".
Eveline was born to to Thomas Jefferson Demooney and Elizabeth "Betsy" Jackson DeMooney. Her fathers surname was actually "Demonia", for one reason or the other, "DeMooney" was adopted by him while his siblings adopted "DeMoney". Eveline's birth name was in reality "Mishael", She did not like the name because people called her "Mish". Her favorite Aunt was Eveline Jackson Banks so she adopted her name as her own.
Eveline came from a poor family made even poorer when her father was framed and sent to an insane asylum where he died innocent of the charges. Being found sane by the hospital Doctors, he was not released because his family never provided for his return home, There he died. Eveline had to work as a hired out cook and house keeper at a very early age to supplement the family income.
She met and married Robert Chesley Boatright, moved to East Point, Ga. and raised 8 children. During the depression, she fed those seeking food on her back porch stoop never turning anyone away even though food was short. She never refused anyone because of the Bible verse Hebrews 13:2 which says: "Be not forgetful to entertain strangers, for thereby some have entertained angels unawares."
She suffered the loss of her oldest son, Jack R. Boatright in World War II. Determined to help with the War Effort, she served as an Air Raid Warden and helped with events to raise money for the Allied Forces.
