4. LOYD L.2 MARONEY (BENJAMIN1) was born Abt. 1832 in Ga.. He married RACHEL SAPHRONIA MORRIS Abt. 1860 in ? Campbell Co., Ga., daughter of LEROY MORRIS and LUCRETIA MOZLEY. She was born Abt. 1842 in Ga..

Notes for LOYD L. MARONEY:
Found in 1860 C. of campbell Co., Ga. already married by census time.

Info from Ruth Autrey Stubbs states that Loyd and Saphronia were in Davis Co. (Cass Co.) Tx. in 1870. Also in household with Loyd and family was his mother, Elizabeth, age 72, born in Ga.

Ruth found info in "It Happened in Post Oak (or thereabouts)" stating that Rachel Saphronia had a sister Elizabeth Ann (Morris) Turner and their parents were Leroy and Lucretia Mozley Morris. In another letter, Ruth states that the book on Lamar and Red River Counties contains the info that Leroy and Lucretia are Rachel Saphronia's parents. The author is a desc. of Elizabeth Morris Turner. Tradition has it that Soletha Maroney Autrey was 1/4 Indian on her father's side and 1/4 Indian on her mother's side. This has not been proven and we can find no evidence to support this. The only census that Soletha is in the household of Loyd and Saphronia Morris is the 1870 Davis Co., Tx. Census. Cass Co., Tx. was known as Davis County from 1861-1871. Soletha's death certificate lists Mother as Phronia Morris, father unknown.

Notes for RACHEL SAPHRONIA MORRIS:
This is tentative info. It appears that Rachel, born c. 1842, was named Rachel Saphronia and called Phronia or Saphronia. Ruth Stubbs is researching Saphronia and Loyd Maroney.
       
Children of LOYD MARONEY and RACHEL MORRIS are:
13.       i.       RACHEL SOLETHA3 MARONEY, b. September 01, 1858, Ga.; d. April 03, 1939, Sevier Co., Ark..
14.       ii.       WILLIAM L. MARONEY, b. July 1863, Ga..
       iii.       ELIZABETH MARONEY, b. Abt. 1865, Ga..
       iv.       AMANDA MARONEY, b. Abt. 1868, Ga..


5. JAMES L.2 MARONEY (BENJAMIN1) was born May 1832 in Ga., and died in Lamar Co, TX. He married (1) JULIA E. HENLEY November 02, 1854 in Campbell Co., Ga.. She died Bef. 1860 in Ga.. He married (2) HANNAH ? Abt. 1862 in Ga.. She died in Lamar Co., Tx..

Notes for JAMES L. MARONEY:
In the 1860 C. of Campbell Co., Ga. has in the household with him John D. Self and his family. John D. Self is the father of my great great grandmother Lucinda Helen Self who married James Samuel Mozley December 04, 1859 in Campbell Co., Ga. Relationship, if any, to Maroneys is unknown.

1870 C. of Carroll Co., Ga. found # 1328/ 1325 James L. Maroney, age 38, Miller, Ga.; Hannah, 26, Ga.; James, 7, Ga.; Catherine, 5, Ga.; Mary, 3, ga.; John, 1, Ga. If this is correct james, Sarah is not listed with him. I don't know where she is.

#1330/1330 James Maroney, 23, works at saw mill, Ga.; Mary, 23, Ga.; Annie, 1, Ga. Relationship unknown to the James Maroney above.

James apparently left Ga. between 1880 and 1900 where he was counted in the Marshall Co., Al. Census and again in 1910. In 1920, according to info on Genforum.com from Sharron Torrence, he was in Red River Co., Tx.

Burial: Cross Trails Cemetery, Sevier Co., Ark.

Notes for JAMES ALEXANDER AUTREY, SR.:
This information is by Leo King House Flippo:

James A. Autrey, Sr. and Soletha Violia Maroney Autrey were the parents of 10 children. They lived awhile at Blossom, Texas, and some of their children were born in that vacinity. But they came back to Bear Creek Twonship, Sevier Co., Arkansas. Their children grew up there. They lived about 1/2 mile west of his father's home in Pepper Creek Valley, near Cross Trails school.

Mr. James Alexander Autrey, Sr. raised fine, blooded horses, and was a farmer. After the railroad was built, 5 or 6 miles from their home, and De Queen became a twon in 1897, many changes were made in homes, farms, and living conditions.

Mr. James A. Autrey was a bank officer in De Queen, and he owned a sawmill. Soon the trees were being cut and sawed into lumber, and new homes built.

Mrs. Soletha Autrey was from Atlanta, Georgia. Her brother, Daton Maroney, lived at Detroit, Texas. He operated a store there. They were 1/4 Cherokee Indian on their father's side. Mrs. Autrey's son, James Autrey, Jr. vouched for that, 2 or 3 years ago.

I knew Mrs. Soletha Autrey from 1917, but I never questioned her on her ancestry. I wish now that I had. Mrs. Soletha looked very much Indian.
She was tall, slender, had high cheek bones, and medium dark skin. She
had black eyes, and long straight black hair, parted in the middle. She
was calm serene, and spoke in a soft voice.

Mr. James Autrey, Sr. died 1910, age 57. Mrs. Soletha was a widow
many years, but she kept her family together till they married/ She lived to be 80 years old. She died 1938. Both of them are buried in Cross Trails Cemetery, Sevier Co., Arkansas.
