I never knew my grandfather, because my parents divorced when I was 5, and we moved to another state with my mom. They eventually remarried, but we never returned to the area where his family originated, so I don't really know many of my father's side of the family. I was told he loved to fish and hunt. He had worked as a farmer, and in a lumber yard. He was married to Alzena Dosie Dewees in 1907, then divorced. He married my grandmother in 1912, and they divorced in the 1930's. He was later married to a lady by the name of Mollie. He had 10 children. Napoleon, Lincoln, Bessie, Delia, Della, Ollie, Wilson, Dan, Buster, and Sherman. Many grandchildren and great-grandchildren. I'm sure I would have loved to spend time with him, if I had had the chance.


Information on my Grandfather's 3rd wife: Mollie Floy Spivey was born to Sam Spivey and Willie Mae Collins on 23 Nov 1909 and died 16 Jul 2000. We believe she married your grandfather after 1942. Her marriage to your grandfather was also her third marriage.
