05-27-2010. Arrangements: Shingleton, Wilson. Published in The News

Hey Crystal, I'm hoping that, due to the towns of Lucama & Sims both
being in Wilson Co, and only being 13 miles apart, that (like 3 months
ago) you may be able to alert us to the family of the above Wilma.
You alerted us re the Feb 27 death of Arthur D. "Toggie" Poythress,

- If it is a new version, it's new to me too......but I guess a brain
challenged enumerator could get to just about anything.....
actually I think one might make a case (with one or more
confirming tidbits) to get to this spelling on the theory that
those enumerators were paid by the name (volume) rather than
quality (correctness) and might not even stop to ask the
enumeratee to repeat himself.

- 329. [POYTHRESS] Mamie Poythress 
- Crystal, you asked me within the past month whether I had a copy of Mamie's marriage certificate to Anthony Peters. I had copied 4 marriage certificates when I was in Emporia in the summer of 2001, which included the marriage certificate of my ancestor, Martha J. Poythress to Edward (O')Neal, in March 1880.
When I looked at the time, I thought that I had it but could not locate it on my hard drive. I looked again today, found it, and have attached the certificate that you inquired about. It was
- 330. [POYTHRESS] Roll Call 
- My name is Bryan Poythress and I am decendant from Edward Poythress and Mahaley Nance. I don't know for sure, but I believe his parents were Lewis Poythress and Elizabeth Patsy Giles.
Is it likely, or even possible, that the father of Lewis Poythress (b. abt 1770) was Thomas (b. 1729)? Also is the following information known and verified?
1 Francis (b abt 1609; died abt 1650)
2 Francis (b abt 1630; d abt 1688)
3 Thomas (1683 - 1749)
4 Thomas (1729)

Giles connection will be archived and retrievable,
Thank you so much for giving me the context of when Mortimer W Giles'
name had ever been mentioned in a message I had seen, before hearing
from you this month. Context helps so much in clarifying such things
for me, and helps so much to understand why it was that you reached
out to me.

- Hi Everyone
Mostly a lurker, reading every bit of info I can find.
I too am interested in possible missing Poythress daughter.
I am descended from Leonard Thomas, son of David Thomas and Rebecca Brooks and Tinsey Winn Thomas, of whom I have found is the daughter of Wynn Thomas.
Wynn Thomas' wife is the unknown here and may be a Poythress, though Cleaton is a good bet too. There are several family associations and interactions with Poythress and Cleatons. Tinsey and Leonard's neice Lucy Thomas was marrie

- Al, while it is clear that you are excited, it is not clear just how/why you see
this info about Poytress folks who were born circa 1787 (Sarah) and 1822 (Ellen)
and circa 1800ish (Charles), and who could have been born in England (or could
have been born elsewhere & moved to England) really would necessarily have any
bearing on Francis, who was probably born more like 1600 or maybe earlier (we
know not where); ~200 years is a big gap.
