Amanda Gilchrist Atchison
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Mar. 5, 1867
Death: Dec. 3, 1900

She married Joseph Bart Atchison December 17, 1887 in Clarke County by Justice of the Peace, MC York.

Their children were:

Joseph Lave Atchison b. 25 Nov 1888 in Salitpa, d.1935 Thomasville

Joseph married Carrie Doyle, b. 1895

Aunt Carrie and my grandmother, Neva, were very close. I can remember how excited Mama Stringer always got anytime she received a letter from Carrie.

Mary Ida Atchison was b. 1890 River Hill / Salitpa. I do not have her death date at the moment.

I do know that my mother, Ida Elizabeth Stringer was named after her.

Neva Ennis Atchison was b.28 Aug 1893 in Salitpa and died 23 Dec 1968 in Mobile.

She married Lemuel Howard Stringer, Sr. who was b. 11 Feb 1885 and died 31 Oct 1957.

They are both buried at Mobile Memorial Gardens in Theodore, Mobile County, Mobile.

William F. Atchison was b. May 1895 in Salitpa. I do not know when he died, but I vaguely remember hearing he died in WWI. I need to check and see what I can find out. I'm only going on memory so please to not quote me on that.

James L. Atchison was the baby. He was born in 1898, just two years before Amanda passed away.

I believe he passed away in 68 or somewhere very close to that date. I need to check on this again because I don't have the dates in front of me. He lived in Clarke County his entire life and was married to Mittie Bolen, deceased but I don't have the dates now. They had one son, Jimmy. I have a photo of him as a child that I can share later. He died several years ago too.


Her marriage information and the bio story were provided by her great granddaughter Donna.

I am leaving the story intact, as I research the information for Donna and in hopes that others will find clues to their loved ones story. Rodney
