Martha Elizabeth “Lizzie” Golightly Selman

Martha married James Foster Selman sometime between 1859 and 1860, as their first born was about 1861.

She was the daughter of Henry Ogborn & Martha D [White] Golightly, her mother was born in Union Co SC, moved to Spartanburg Co SC, and there married Henry, Both moved to Cherokee Co AL, their resting place.

James & Martha's known children were:
Wiley T, Martha E, Mary E, James O, Barney, Luther, and Maud, there may have been other children after 1880. Some of the children are buried at Armuchee Baptist Church Cemetery, in Armuchee Floyd County.

Martha's burial place is listed on her death certificate, as 'Old Armuchee Cemetery'. She was not on Find-A-Grave at either cemetery, I would assume her husband, who died in 1907, may also be buried here. It appears he served in the Civil War, a PVT in Floyd's Legion.

Lizzie was a member of the Old Armuchee Baptist Church.
