The picture was of the Shaws; I will have to get the pic from Dottie Mae and scan it for you. Dottie's parents were John Solomon Banks and Mary Elizabeth Motley; Mary's parents were William Turner Motley and Mary Clemontine Dearman. That is her connection to the Dearmans....along with her aunt, Nancy Banks who married Thomas Lee "Humpy Tom" Dearman; he is buried at Mt. Gilead in Sumter Co. AL; they had 6 children: Mary Ellen married Dempsey Blake Dearman; son Thomas Lee, Jr. married Sallie Mae Tate; Allie married Robert Stephens; Liddie Vaughn married Benjamin Knight; son Ernest V. died young and daughter Essie married Percy W. Jones. Most of the children and Nancy are buried in the Lone Cherry Cemetery in Mangham, Richland Parish, LA; Thomas and son, Ernest are buried in Sumter Co. AL. I'll be in touch soon.
