Notes for Burrell Rainwater:
Sources for Burrell and other Rainwater family members. Copies of all these records are in my document files.

War of 1812 Military Records, National Archives August 2005:
Served as a Private in Capt. James Gray's Company, 26th TN Militia from May 19 to June 30, 1812.

He was hired as a substitute for John Fortenberry, and served as a Private in Captain Clement's Company SC Militia, War of 1812, under "Col. Hugh Means 1st Regiment of SC" Volunteers from Oct 1, 1814 to October 29, 1814 and was discharged when, due to illness, he hired Ezekiel Fuller to substitute for him. He enlisted in Spartanburg SC and was furloughed in Charleston SC.

23 August 1851, Burrell, age 70, made application for Bounty Land for services in the War of 1812, stated he served 4 months and hired an Ezekiel Fuller to serve the balance of his time of 6 months due to a disability.

9 Nov 1852, Burrell sold to Oliver Paris ; 39.85.5 acres in NE 1/4 of SE 1/4 T8Sr4E Huntsville. From Marshall Co. land sales records, found in Arab, AL public library. Meridian Military Act of 1850, lands Cert/Warrant #55145, issued 30 April 1852. Purchasing/entering lands on Sand Mountain, Marshall Co. Al included all the territory east of Big Spring Valley, south and west of Town Creek between 1819-1860.

09 April 1856, Burrell, age 76 (actually 74 in April, 75 by August based on census and other records) made 2nd application for land that he might be entitled to from war of 1812, in Paulding Co. with Charles Fuller and Wm. Powell as witnesses.( Both are S-I-L, Charles married to Sarah, Wm married to Margret). Application for bounty land by Ezekiel Fuller in Habersham Co. GA confirms he served for Burrell Rainwater.

Burrell received another Warrant #62456, but I haven't found out where this land is. The dates on the War of 1812 reference cards give #136.891 March 3, 1855 and #121.758 May 17, 1855. I don't know what these numbers and dates refer to.

Census records for Burrell.
1810-Spartanburg SC: 1 male under 10 (unknown-probably newborn); 1 male 16-25 (Burrell 25); 1 female under 10(Jane-2 b Abt 1808-1809); 1 female 16-25 (Elizabeth 18). This male child does not show up again on census records. Several stories about this child. 1) May have been kidnapped by Indians, 2) Elizabeth gave child to her parents to raise.

1820-Spartanburg SC: 1 male under 10 (Allen-6 b 1814); 1 male 26-45 (Burrell 35); 3 females under 10 (Susannah 8 b 1812, Nancy 3 b 1817, Sarah 1 b 1819); 1 female 10-16 (Jane 12); 1 female 16-26 (Elizabeth 28).

1830-Hall Co. GA: 1 male 15-20 (Allan 16); 1 male 40-50 (Burrell 45); 1 female under 5 (Margaret 1); 2 females 5-9 (Elizabeth 5 b and Mary 7); 2 females 10-15 (Sarah 11, Nancy 13); 2 females 16-20 (Susannah 18, Jane 22); 1 female 40-50 (Elizabeth 38).

1840-Cherokee Co. AL: (Indexed as R. Rainwater, but it is a B.) 2 males 20-30 (Allen 26 and unknown); 1 male 50-60 (Burrell 55); 1 female 10-15 (Margaret 11); 1 female 15-20 (Betsy); 1 female 20-30 (Sarah 21); 1 female 50-60 (Elizabeth 48). Note: Census taken in June. Allen and Sarah married in double wedding Dec 1840. The unknown male could be Charles Fuller, Sally's future husband, who is 24 years old. Jane, and Mary out of the home, did not find them in any 1840 census. Susannah Lewis in own household with husband Wm. Lewis next door, and Nancy Minton in her own household with husband John Minton in Benton Co. AL.

1850-Cobb Co. GA, California Dist. (became Paulding Co. in Dec. 1851): Burrell, age 68, white, farmer, born SC; Elizabeth, age 58, born GA; Jane, age 42, born GA; John James, age 15(also known as James T.), born AL; John, age 12, born AL; Joseph, age 7(also known as William J.), born AL. *NOTE* There is some confusion with some researchers regarding this census. In column #10, "married within the year" there is a check mark for Burell but not Elizabeth. Charles and Sally Fuller also have check marks after their names, married within the year, and we have certified marriage records from 1840 for them. If you look at the census carefully for the other households on this same page you will see that all of the people, including children, born OUTSIDE of the State of GA have check marks after their names. All other pages of this Cobb Co. GA census, by the same enumerator, are also checked if they were born in another state. Since we have church records dating from 1819 for Burrell and Elizabeth, Burrell was married only once and Elizabeth is the mother of all his children.

Family #1636 is daughter, Elizabeth b AL with James B. Calley and children.
Family #1658 is Burrell, Elizabeth and daughter Jane and children.
Family #1659 is daughter, Sarah b SC with Charles Fuller and children.
Family #1660 is daughter, Mary (Polly) b SC with Samuel Reynolds and Children.
Family #1675 is daughter, Susannah b SC with William Lewis and children.
Family #1745 is daughter, Margaret b GA with William Powell and children.
Family #1467 is son, Allen b SC with Nancy and children.
Daughter Nancy and her husband, John Minton stayed in AL

Unable to locate Burrell or Elizabeth in any 1860 census or later. They are both believed to be buried in the Vernon Cemetery, Paulding Co. GA. Vernon Cemetery established by Elizabeth Rainwater Calley's father in law, Peleg Calley before 1850. Elizabeth held the cemetery and had named it Vernon. It has never been named Mt. Vernon Baptist Church Cemetery. A church bought the property next door in the 1940s or so and people assumed the cemetery belonged to the church.

Notes for Elizabeth ???:
Some researchers think Elizabeth's maiden name was Calley, others think it was Bobo and still others think she was a Cherokee Indian. No supporting evidence for Elizabeth's maiden name..

As of June 2009, I have not found any land or deed documents with Elizabeth's name.

IF traditional naming patterns held in this family, Elizabeth parent's given names were Allen and Jane.

For first church records for Elizabeth see notes for Burrell.

New Hopewell Baptist Church, organized 14 August 1832, in Creek Indian Territory, now Piedmont, Calhoun Co. (formerly Benton) AL. Benton Co. was created from Creek Indian Territory 18 Dec 1832, Piedmont organized in 1871.

New Hopewell Baptist organized with 6 charter members, and the records begin with Rules of Decorum dated August 14, 1832, then follows a list of the members for 1832. Elizabeth was not a charter member as she is still in Hall Co GA in 1833, but is shown as member #22 on the membership rolls. Jane is listed as member #38 received by experience June 26th 1835. Sarah is member #48, received by experience Sept 20th, 1835.

Jane was excluded September 23, 1836, Elizabeth and daughter Sarah applied for letters of dismission that was was granted Feb. 24, 1838.
       
Children of Burrell Rainwater and Elizabeth ??? are:
+       2       i.       Jane2 Rainwater, born Bet. 1808 - 1809 in Spartanburg Dist SC; died Bet. 1885 - 1890 in Paulding Co GA.
       3       ii.       Son Rainwater, born Abt. 1810 in Spartanburg Dist SC; died Unknown in Spartanburg Dist SC.

Notes for Son Rainwater:
If the naming pattern held true, then this child would have been named John as 1st born son was usually named after the paternal grandfather. There is a story in some branches of Burrell's family that in order for Elizabeth's parents to grant her permission to marry, she was required to give her first born son to her father to raise. Elizabeth was married when she was 15 or 16 as Jane was 2 yrs old on 1810 census.

This child is not on the 1820 or 1830 census. There is an unknown male in Burrell's household in the
20-30 age group on the 1840 census. This son would be about 30 years old.


+       4       iii.       Susannah Rainwater, born Abt. 1812 in Spartanburg Dist SC; died Aft. 1871 in Unknown.

Generation No. 2

       2. Jane2 Rainwater (Burrell1, JohnA, JohnB, JohnC) was born Bet. 1808 - 1809 in Spartanburg Dist SC, and died Bet. 1885 - 1890 in Paulding Co GA. She married ??? Rash Bet. 1860 - 1862 in GA. He was born Unknown, and died Bef. 1870.

Notes for Jane Rainwater:
Jane is listed as a member of the New Hopewell Baptist Church in Benton Co. AL (now Calhoun Co.) in 1834. She was excluded from this church one week prior to James T.'s birth. (see notes for Burrell)

Have not found Jane on the 1840 census in AL. Jane may be the unknown female with two unknown boys in her sister Susannah's household, with William Lewis. The boys are in the wrong age group but enumerators were known to make mistakes.

1850 Cobb Co GA census, Jane 42 b GA; John James (James T.) 15 b AL; John 12 b AL; (William) Joseph 7 b AL. Jane is in the hh of Burrell Rainwater, #1658.

1860 US census, Paulding Co GA, 1043rd Dist p 24 hh 177: Rainwater, Jane 50 b AL; John 19 b AL; Joseph 15 b GA; Margarette 8 b GA; Amanda 5 b GA. James is in his own HH.

On January 5th, 1863, Jane made an application to obtain from the government of the Confederate States whatever may have been due to her son, John M. Rainwater at the time of his death on 14 June 1862, for bounty or other allowances for his services. Jane's sister, Margaret Powell, signed a supporting affidavit.

Letter from Hammett and Eleanor Paris, dated 22 Aug 1991, to Anne Coker, descendant of Sarah Rainwater; that 'Old Lady Rainwater' buried in the Vernon Cemetery, was James' mother. She married a Rash". Row 5 sp 14 is Old Lady, row 5 sp 15 is her son, John Rainwater, row 5 sp 16 is Margarette Rash. No dates on markers.

1870 US census, Paulding Co GA, Calif Dist 28th June p 427B hh #116: Rash, Jane 60 b GA; Amanda 15 b GA. Jane's sister, Elizabeth in hh 111. Margarette and John are deceased. Joseph William is deceased, leaving a widow and two children, as he died in the Civil War.

1880 US census, Paulding Co GA, California Dist 1043rd, 15th June p 464 hh 215: Rash, Jane 71b GA VA VA; M.J. 25 da, b GA. This is Amanda as she was known as Mandy Jane.

Jane seems to have a problem remembering where she and her parents were born. On the 1850 census, Elizabeth and Jane born in GA, Burrell born in SC. 1860 census Jane states she was born AL, on the 1870 it's GA again, but she states in 1880 her parents born in VA. Daughter, Amanda states on the 1900 census that her father born GA and her mother in SC. On the 1880 census her brother, James T. states his father born SC and his mother born SC. Since Jane appears to be the female under 10 in Burrell's household on the 1810 census of Spartanburg SC, I believe she was born in SC. Brother Allen states on the 1880 census he and both his parents born in SC.

Jane was in Prairie Co AR when daughter Amanda married John Fort on 1 March 1885. They were living with her sister Elizabeth, and Elizabeth witnessed Amanda's marriage. Copies of Amanda Rash's marriage certificate on file, signed as witness by Elizabeth Calley.

By 1885, Jane had 3 married grandchildren with their own households and probably returned to GA to stay with one of them. Jane is buried in the Vernon Cemetery next to son John and Daughter Margarette.

Jane's death date is unknown, but would be sometime after March 1885. Amanda's granddaugher, Robbie Sutlive, stated that after Amanda's marriage and move to TX they never had contact with any of Jane's family.

Notes for ??? Rash:
This is for research information only. I have no verification that this family is in any way connected to the "Rash" that Jane Rainwater may have married.

Notes for William Lewis:
Notes for William Lewis:
William Lewis purchased from William D. Conyers (of Newton County) lot 482 in 2nd district and 3rd section of Cobb County, originally Cherokee Co, 40 acres for $60 (sixty dollars) on 18 Feb. 1851. Witnessed by Jonathan Lindley
Wm. Lewis on 1851 Cobb Co tax digest, owning 40 acres of land.
William Lewis purchased from James J. Austin lot 480 in 2nd district and 3rd section of Paulding County, originally Cherokee Co, 40 acres for $150 on the 13th of Nov. 1852. Witnessed by Jeremiah Wisener and James T. Rainwater. (Janeís son, and Susanís nephew.)

There is the chance that this unknown female and two boys are Jane and her sons, even though the boys are in the wrong age group. Have not found any other possibilities for Jane and her sons in the 1940 census. These children could also be siblings of William. This family is living next door to Burrell Rainwater.

Harris were married 10 June 1860. Census date was 28 June 1860, so 20 year old Martha must be Pinkney's new wife. 10 year old James would be newborn John J. on 1850 census. Mary out of the HH as she married Nathaniel Greenberry Parris, 1858 and died in childbirth 1859.

Notes for Samuel P. Rainwater:
Pvt. D Co, 1st AL Inf. Died Camp Douglas, buried Confederate Mound, Oak Woods Cemetery, Chicago IL.

Some indexes for the Confederate sources have Samuel listed as Lemuel P., however, this is a reading or deciphering of handwriting or typing error.

Notes for Martha ???:
I have no information on this person and she may not even have been married to Samuel.
Samuel was 16 years old in 1860, and died when he was 18. I didn't find any request for a pension based on Samuel's CSA service for a Martha Rainwater, however, that doesn't mean there isn't one. I just didn't find it.

Notes for Sarah (Sally) Rainwater:
Hand written notes by Sarah Evalela Fuller Menasco at about age 79. Some of the information has been proven incorrect, and some of it has not been verified by other sources. Parenthesis will be shown for known errors.

Our Grandmother Sarah "Sally" Rainwater had two sisters might have been more but I can't recall them. (Sally had six sisters and two brothers US census) One of them Elizabeth called Betsy married William Calley (Betsy married James B. Calley) [William D., James' brother married Louisa E. Paris -US census] and was the mother of: William, Jim and John's father and several others I can't recall; Munroe 'Mun, (indicating he was father of) George and Norman who was the father of Nora and Flora twins; Eva and Bessie;
Nepolian, no descendants; Doc , no descendants; (have not determined which of Betsy's sons were called by these nick names)
Emmy Calley married Pink Paris and had several children;
Ella Calley married Ed Bullock, (Ella m. Wm. H. Bullock) one son Eddie Bullock. (Census and burial records)

The other sister married Abner Minton (here she had written John and erased it and wrote in Abner. Nancy married John Morris Minton), who was the father of Sidney and Burel Minton and there was some more sisters that I can't recall.

Minnie Minton that Warner Fuller married is related on the Minton side and all came to Arkansas Prairie Co. from Georgia after the Civil War. Burrel Minton's sons were Morris, Lee, Sidney, Charlie and Vernon. Daughters Alice, Mattie and Mary.

Charles Fuller and Sarah Rainwater were married about 1840 in N Carolina. (Charles and Sally m. Benton Co. AL marriage records)
The following children were borned:
Henry, who died in the Civil War
Steve A., went thru the Civil War and lived to be 89.
Elizabeth married Chris Fanin - 3 children
Emeline never married, died at age 69
Ezekiel Young married Sarah Ann Paris and had 9 children
Charles Warner married Minnie Minton - 6 children
Brown married and had 5 children (This is James)
Joseph never married and died in early manhood, all borned in Paulding Co. GA. (buried Prairie Co. AR)

(Nancy, a 4th child on 1850 census was unknown to Sarah Fuller as Nancy died as a small child. The first 4 children were born in AL, the rest of them in GA.)

Children of Sarah Rainwater and Charles Fuller are:
       36       i.       Henry L. Canis3 Fuller, born Abt. 1841 in Cherokee or Benton Co AL; died 03 Mar 1862 in Lynchburg, VA.

Notes for Henry L. Canis Fuller:
Henry's middle name may be Elkanah or Elkanis and enumerator didn't know how to spell it.
Another researcher stated that his middle name was Elcanis rather than L. Canis, or Henry L.C.

Henry enlisted in the Civil War on June 20th 1861 at Dallas GA, and died in General Hospital #1, in Lynchburg, VA from Rubella, (measles) on 3 March 1862. (He had previously been hospitalized on Sept 16, 1961) He served as a private under Capt. John B. Beall, in the 19th Georgia Reg't., Infantry, Co H., Army of TN, Cotton Guards., Commanded by Co. W.W. Boyd. National Archive documents of Henry's CS service and Charles petition and affidavit is on file. Charles Fuller received the monies due Henry of $120 on April 14, 1862, Certificate
#1716, of Register of claims of Deceased Officers and Soldiers from GA.

From Aaron Maulding, Paulding County GA GenForum, Henry L.C. Fuller died in Lynchburg VA and his body was shipped to a hospital in Marietta GA. In August 2005, I had found nothing at the National Archives about Henry's body being shipped to Marietta GA, only that $10 was paid for his burial on 6 March 1862.

Henry Fuller is buried in the Antioch Cemetery Church Yard in Paulding Co. GA, with CSA grave markings. Henry may have been buried in this cemetery, because his sister, Nancy, may be buried there.

My grandmother, Sarah Evalela Fuller Menasco, stated in her notes that her Uncle Henry was married to Martha Crally. However, she was mistaken, as Charles stated in his affidavit to the government of the Confederate States, he was Henry's only heir, that Henry left no widow or children.

There is an H.C. Fuller that married M.E. Crally on 05 Dec. 1865 and is enumerated on the 1870 Paulding Co. census. This may possibly be a family member.

+       37       ii.       Stephen Allen Fuller, born 15 Mar 1844 in Cherokee or Benton Co AL; died 06 Nov 1931 in Frisco, McCurtain Co. OK.
       38       iii.       Nancy Fuller, born Abt. 1846 in Cherokee or Benton Co AL; died Bef. 1860 in Paulding Co GA.

Notes for Nancy Fuller:
Nancy, age 4 on the 1850 census, is not on the 1860 census.

Nancy is probably buried in the Antioch Cemetery, Paulding Co., in an unmarked grave. Other family members are buried in the Vernon Cemetery, but brother Henry was buried in the Antioch Cemetery instead of Vernon. Charles and Sarah may have chosen Antioch because his sister was buried there.

+       39       iv.       Narcis Elizabeth Fuller, born 31 Dec 1848 in Cherokee or Benton Co AL; died 26 Aug 1909 in Paulding Co. GA.
       40       v.       Sarah Emeline Fuller, born 25 Dec 1850 in Cobb Co GA; died 28 Jul 1918 in Amity, Clark Co AR.

Notes for Sarah Emeline Fuller:
Sarah Emeline had a stroke as a young woman and lived out her life with her brother, Ezekiel, according to this researcher's grandmother, Sarah Evalela Fuller, her Aunt Emmy had lived in the household as long as she could remember.

1880 census, in father's household, Paulding Co. GA

1900 census, in brother, James Brown's household, Prairie Co. AR
Haven't found Emeline in the 1910 census yet.

Emeline Fuller is buried in the Jones Cemetery, Amity, Clark Co. AR.

Grandmother stated that her Aunt Emmy had never married.

       8. Mary (Polly)2 Rainwater (Burrell1, JohnA, JohnB, JohnC) was born Abt. 1823 in Hall Co GA, and died Bef. 1895 in Unknown. She married Samuel J. Reynolds Abt. 1843 in AL or GA. He was born Mar 1824 in SC, and died Aft. 1900 in AL.

Notes for Samuel J. Reynolds:
There is a William F. Reynolds as a 2nd Lieut. who served with Burrell in Means 1st Reg. Vol from SC in the War of 1812. There is also a William Reynolds on the 1840 Cherokee Co. AL census. This may possibly be Samuel's father. Need to do more research.

Civil War Record: S.J. Reynolds 1st Corp age 38 at enlistment on 3-8-62 in Company D, 1st Reg. GA Vol., discharged at Kingston TN 9-22-62. Also served in Company A and F, 9th Battalion, GA Cavalry State Guards; and Co. K, 66th Reg, GA Vol Inf, Army of Tennessee.

Also in this household is Mark Powell 27 b GA as Farm Laborer. The 1870 Mortality Schedule has Joanna Powell age 22 died August 1869 from this household, probably from typhoid, as Mary's brother-in-law and nephew, William and James Lewis also died from typhoid. Do not know if this is Mark's wife or sister. Mary's sister, Margaret, is married to William Powell, but these are not Margaret's children.

Vernon Cemetery: Elizabeth Calley gave one Acre of land for a cemetery and school. She named both cemetery and school Vernon in honor of a nephew of whom she was fond, the son of Burrell ?. Vernon may have been a teacher at the school. More research needed to determine which brother or sister this child belonged. Letter from Hammett C. Paris, stated his last name was Fuller, however, sister Sally and husband Charles Fuller did not have a son named Vernon. One researcher stated there was a Vernon Calley, I have not located this person. Sister Nancy had a grandchild named Vernon, however he wasn't born until 1888.

Deed of conveyance signed 4th October 1880 selling 196 acres in 2nd Dist. and 3rd Sec., to B.J. Penn, lot numbers 399, 395, 394, 326, and 325 and keeping one acre of lot 325 for herself to be used for Grave Yard and School House, plus three acres of same lot number. Received $1500.

Notes for Simeon Jay West:

       78       ii.       William F. Rainwater, born Abt. 1864 in Paulding Co GA; died Bet. 1883 - 1884 in Polk Co. GA. He married Mary Elizabeth Thompson 09 Jun 1881 in Cobb Co GA; born Unknown; died Unknown.


       15. Amanda Jane3 Rainwater (Jane2, Burrell1, JohnA, JohnB, JohnC) was born 16 Jul 1854 in Paulding Co GA, and died 08 Aug 1926 in Nacogdoches Co TX. She married John Fort 01 Mar 1885 in Prairie Co. AR. He was born 10 Mar 1853 in GA, and died 16 Dec 1919 in Sour Lake, Hardin Co TX.

Notes for Amanda Jane Rainwater:
Amanda's granddaughter, Robbie Sutlive, stated Amanda was living with her Aunt Betsy in Prairie Co. AR, and was treated as a servant. May have been earning her keep as household help. Mrs. Sutlive said that Amanda's mother, Jane was also living with them for a period of time.

Amanda's Bible records has her marriage to John Fort, by Robert Coburn, witnessed by Elizabeth Calley and W.H. Bullock (Elizabeth's SIL) on 01 March 1885 at home in Prairie Co. AR. Copy of marriage records on file, Amanda Jane Rash married to John Fort.

Seems Amanda wanted to make sure she was married, as she was also married on this same day by James B. Taylor, J.P. with James L. Minton as security for John Fort. Prairie Co. AR. James L. Minton was brother to Mariam Willie who married Charles W. Fuller, son of Sarah Rainwater Fuller. He was also the nephew of John Minton who married Nancy Rainwater. Three of Burrell's daughters were involved with this marriage, Elizabeth Calley, Nancy Minton and Sarah Fuller. All lived in Hazen, Prairie Co. Arkansas.

Birth, Deaths, and Marriage records from Amanda's Bible.

On the 1920 census, Amanda is in the household with her daughter-in-law's mother, as Mandy.

I do not have a copy of Amanda Fort's death records, however Robbie Sutlive stated Amanda's mother's maiden name was shown as Jane Rainwater. She is buried in Nacogdoches Co TX

Robbie stated that when she started with genealogy research, her Aunt Jennifer, Amanda Jane's daughter, told her not to be surprised if she discovered that her grandmother had been born on "the wrong side of the blanket". They only knew that Jane Rainwater was Amanda's mother and had no other information about her.

Robbie remembers her grandmother telling her that when she was a child and young woman, and lived in her Aunt Betsy's Calley's home, she hated her aunt and her twin cousins Mary and Ella. Amanda stated that she and her mother, Jane, were worked like slaves for their keep, were ridiculed and debased. That Betsy's daughters would deliberately make messes and order Amanda or Jane to clean them up. Shortly after Amanda's marriage, she and her husband John Fort, moved to TX and never again had contact with any of her grandmother's family.

Notes for James A. Lewis:
Conflicting information with researchers and census. James was 2 months old on the 1880 AR census so he couldn't have been born in 1882. 1900 gives a birth date of Mar 1881, 1910 he is 28, and in 1920 he is 37. I'm inclined to agree he was alive on the 1880 census as a newborn.

Notes for Alpha Caldonia Sexton:
Information from another researcher, and from the US census data conflict. No verifications as to maiden name, birth, marrriage or death dates. 1900 census states they have been married 0 years, 1910 states 10 years and she has given birth to 5 children with 4 still living.
age give as 23, 30, and 42 through 3 census. I'm inclined to go with the 1900 census, just turned 23 the previous March.

Conflicting information regarding marriages for William J. No verifications for any marriage, and some reserchers think that Nancy A. ??? is Sarah Ann Permelia Weathers, however, I have been unable to verify that any Weathers' family were in Paulding Co in 1860, or Cobb Co.

I have not found any marriage records for William and Nancy in Paulding Co. GA. If they were married prior to 1965 in Cobb Co. the records were burned by Sherman. I have not searched the Fulton Co. marriage records. Marriage also not found on FTM marriage CD for AL, SC..

No marriage record found for William and Martha on the FTM marriage CD for AL, GA, SC.

Notes for Martha R. ???:
1900 census states Martha had two children with none still living. May have been from a previous marriage.
       
Children of William Lewis and Nancy ??? are:
       97       i.       Samuel W.4 Lewis, born 1867 in AL; died Unknown.

Marriage record recorded in Pike Co. Marriages.
My Grandmother's (Sarah Fuller Menasco) notes state George married a Byers girl in Pike County, AR, however I haven't found this marriage. Would have been after Letha died in 1923

US Census for 1880 (age on June 1st, 3 months) and 1900 (birth month and year, March 1880) has George still in his father's home.

Draft registration in McCurtain, OK in 1918 shows George W. Fuller was born 01 August 1879, per Sharrie Ramey, on 23 April 2009. I have not seen the reg. card. Because of his age, he would have been in the 3rd draft for all men between ages 18-45. (1st 21-31, 2nd for those turned 21 after June 5th, 1917) Place of birth not requested on the 3rd draft.

Social Security death index gives George's birthday as 02 August 1879. I haven't found the reason for the age discrepancy between the census records and what George later reported.

Sharrie Ramey's information has George married to a Maud Haththorn, with a child Louise Kennedy. There is not a Maud Fuller on the Social Security death index. There is a Maud Kennedy b. 14 Dec 1882 and d. Jun 1969 in Okla City, OK, SS# 440-48-3285 issued in OK
