Hi Bobbye,

Do you know who her 1st husband is and where he is buried? According to her daughter's obit, his name was Alvie White Sr. Do you have any info? Thanks.

RE: Mary A.
I have looked at the Edwin Davis buried at Memorial Gardens, Livingston, Sumter, AL and that is not him. I found other records for this person living in Sumter Co. in 1930, and again in a 1940 census with wife Annie Joe.

The death record in Orange County for William Davis might very well be correct, but I can find no burial record. I do know that he and Dorris lived in FL most of their adult lives, and had adopted children, I believe - cannot remember names. Ed's wife was definitely Margaret, and they were living in Columbus, GA (lived in FL most of adult lives) when my grandmother passed away in December, 1970. I just cannot recall when he might have died because I was in college and lived out of state after 1972.

Thanks for your response.

RE: Mary A.
You are right; Joel was their child. He was the youngest and is buried with his parents. No one in my family had ever said their was a 3rd child, but I did find his burial record and photo of his grave..

I knew William and Ed Davis growing up. They were my grandmother's nephews and both lived in Florida most of the time. I have found a death record for a William T. Davis in Orange County, FL for Sep 1964. This could be right, but I find nothing on Find-A-Grave. His wife's name was Annie Dorris.

Edwin A. "Ed" Davis was married to Margaret LNU, and they lived in Florida after he was an adult. They had moved to the Columbus, GA area for his last few years, and I know he was alive after 1970. I lost touch with him after my grandmother died, and unfortunately there is no one left alive who would know.

Also Earl Washington Forester is buried at Winston Memorial, I know he went to church at New Hope so he may be part of those you're looking for.

No, the whole cemetery hasn't been photographed but most of it has. I will try to get over there and do the rest of the cemetery when weather is better and will try to do some research on the forester family. Some of the Foresters who lived in that area (Dillar and Lottie) are buried in Winston County at Winston Memorial, don't know if they are related to the ones you are researching.

RE: Martha Bailey Osborne's children
Hi, Bobbye, I hope the surgery goes well. I've updated my info on this family. I now have 10 children and you have 10 children. The difference is that I have an infant born & died 22 Feb 1919 that you don't have. You have a Dorothy Osborne that I don't have.

The 1930 census is the latest I've checked for this family, that's probably why I don't have Dorothy. The infant is buried at Oak Bower and is not the same as any of the other named children. My Billy and your William are probably the same. So there were probably 11 children in all.

- Bobbie
