51. John Poythress, 1684, WIFE? [1]
There is much confusion concerning the wife of the John Poythress born about 1684, whether he was Junior, Senior, and what his wife's name was. He was the father of Elizabeth Poythress who married John Fitzgerald. The LDS site says, I believe, John's was Mary Batte and R.B. Batte says Christian Peebles. I think it is Peebles and NOT Mary Batte. Can anyone give me a definitive answer?
52. Delphy Wilkerson [1]
Nancy, I have thrashed through all my papers once again. I have found a Dephy Wilkerson. I can prove 8 ways from Sunday that a Francis Poythress m. a Mary Peterson and died 1796, leaving one son Francis who had served as a sgt. in the First Virginia Light Dragoons and died unmarried at age twenty four (which is likely why he is not named in the will at all). But I just can't do anything with Delphy as a second spouse. So, the stickler here is that many records say Mary Peterson was his wife and hi

54. N. H. Poythress [1]
Doris, I don't how Al Chasserea got dialed into this conversation (or even if he wants to stay) but I have saved a lot of his posts in the past because he does knuckles down first rate genealogy and I guess I'm in his fan club even if he doesn't know me from Adam. So if he's interested my guess is he would bring something constructive to the party and is MOST welcome. your point, or points.... First, I'm gonna be a tough sell on N. H. Poythress being a son of John Maner Poythress and Rh
55. Re: Lewis Y. Poythress [1]
Hello, Pat. I'd be happy to contribute what I know. I should start by clarifying that I am NOT a descendant of this Lewis Y. Poythress. Maynard leans on me for Southside Virginia and I lean on him for Georgia. :-) Regarding Minerva Poythress, I have no knowledge and no guesses to offer. I have a Lewis Y. Poythress, b. about 1820 in Mecklenburg Co., Va., married Mary C. Ferguson in Mecklenburg in 1846, living in Greensville Co., Va. as of 1860 (reel 1349, page 600, line 38) with wife Mary and two girls

57. Re: John Poythress, 1684, WIFE? [1]
Thanks Lou, This makes sense, and also does not stretch the imagination too much. The LDS site has John Fitzgerald marrying Elizabeth the daughter of John Poythress and Mary Batte. A nice relationship with lots of exotic forebears going back to Kings and Queens of Europe. With the John Poythress who married Christian Peebles the clan goes a little way back to Scotland, and ends. But I'd rather have truth than fantasy. Lou, who is Boddie? This then beggars several more questions. Does anyone have a

60. Nathaniel Harper Poythress [1]
I hope that I have finally posted a query to the P-L on Rootsweb after monitoring it for sometime. My ggrandfather was Nathaniel "Harper" Poythress born 07June1861 where? (lived in Screven Co., GA) died 06June1908 where - Jenkins County, GA maybe. He married, 08July1880, Rachel Flake in Oliver, Screven, GA. N.H. has been my brickwall and to have hit this wall at this stage is discouraging.

Announced on CNBC an hour ago. Do not open "I love you". It is capable of not only zapping your hard drive but that of everyone on your mailing list. This one is all over Europe now and has begun to show in USA. The new version of Norton Antivurus is about 50 bucks and it will stop laser beam just as it stopped this virus when it appeared in my incoming mail. I recommend the "insurance". Norton won 3 places in the "top 10" of software in "PC Today", the first for an anti-virus software. Best, M
65. Hester Wilder Mock Poythress [1]
Barbara...catching up on old mail. Here is a paste from my records on Hester's children. The original ledger book was supposedly at one time in the Georgia archives; at any rate they say they "think" it was there and shamefacedly now say if it was there they have lost it. More likely if it was there they sold it; believe or not an institution charged with keeping records has periodic sales to the public of material they deem appropriate to sell. I'm inclined to give the information below some degree

67. Mecklenburg Co, VA Heritage Book update [1]
I'm curious to hear from List members who else has contributed articles about their Poythress heritage for the upcoming Mecklenburg County Heritage Book? I did, and I know BPW did, but apparently they got more Poythress articles than just ours. So I'd love to hear from you, to see which lines will be represented in it. Thanks, Barbara (BPN)

I mentioned some Poythress people, only because I don't personally have much info on them. I wrote about James B. Jones family, mentioning Anna Ella Jones married to William Lewis Poythress. And their son Foxhall Poythress. I also wrote about William Archer Dortch married to Sarah Poythress and their children. Julie ----- Original Message ----- From: "Barbara P.

What great resources we all have access to today, thanks to the Virginia WPA Historical Inventory Project that was sponsored by the Virginia Conservation Commission under the direction of its Division of History, back in the 1930s.

75. Mecklenburg book info [1]
Several of you asked me today if I knew "when the Mecklenburg County, Virginia Heritage Book will come out & what it will sell for?" so I called today to ask Frances Clark, who's coordinating the book, putting all the stories in order to send to the publisher. It's targeted for delivery late this year. They extended the deadline for submission of articles until April 20th because so many people are now getting their cousins to also submit articles, to help extend the info on their family line further
