Dorothy Marie Barbee was the oldest child of James Ellis and Bertha Mae Posey. She was a member of Woodbine Baptist Church and married James Monroe Barbee Sr. on May 2, 1933 and they had six children: James Monroe Jr., Ray Edward, Alyce Mae, Elton ("Bill") Leroy, Larry Oliver and Charles Ashby. James and Dorothy were married 52 years at the time of her death on December 9, 1985. Dorothy was a hard worker. She made clothes for the family and sewed quilts to both use and sell. The Barbees raised hogs and chickens and had a huge garden to feed their family. Dorothy canned vegetables from the garden and their cellar held the canned goods, potatoes and other vegetables. She tended her strawberry garden--selling some and making jam from some. Dorothy did sewing, ironing and wallpapering for other people to make ends meet at home. At the time of her death, Dorothy had suffered long and hard from the crippling effects of Rheumatoid Arthritis.
