Yes, that's right. I spoke to Kim. We had some good conversations about the Humphries and Joiner families.

You are right, Celia and her baby are buried at Shady Grove and the dad is buried elsewhere. They are listed in the "The First Hundred Years," which is a history of Cobb County. In that book, the cemetery is called "Community Church Cemetery" and says it was formerly called "Causey's Chapel" cemetery. The baby was a boy, unnamed, and he only lived one day. So sad.

The following is from the "Civic Directory of Austell, History of Austell, Compiled 1968 by Mary Perkerson Inman" that I found at the Austell Public Library. P. 10 "The Postmasters of Austell from 1883 to 1968 were A. H. Irvine, Charles J. Shelverton, Mrs. Will Strickland..."

I think there is another reference somewhere that gives the exact years she was postmistress, but I don't have that handy right now.

There is one more possibility that you might investigate for your Sallie "Evaline." There seems to have been a connection between the Causeys/Joiners and a Humphries family in Florida. I have never seen any evidence that the Humphries in Florida were related to my family. I have wondered if they were related to Robert Humphries of Edgecombe Co., N.C. that was associated with the Joyners many years before. I haven't seen any evidence for that connection, either. But there was a family connected to the Florida Humphries who came up and lived in Campbell Co. and was associated with the Causey/Joiners about 1860 (sorry, once again working from memory, so I may be off). Maybe Sallie was related to that group.

Good luck. I would be interested in knowing if you connect her up to a family one day. Too bad she is not a man with an all-male line of descent or you could do Y-DNA testing. There is a Humphries family project with familytreeDNA and we have identified a cluster of Humphries families that match ours. They all go back to John and Mary White Humphries of Brunswick Co., Va.

If I find anything else relevant I'll let you know. Please let me know if I can be of any help in the future.
