This is a post from LaMyra.....
<<<<<The Jesse Melton that married Grady Dockins was the son of William
and Georgia Davis, William is son of Joel D. Melton. This is a different
Melton line from the Nathan Hamby Melton line. LaMyra.>>>>>>>>.
There certainly were a "bunch" of Jesse's in the Melton families, weren't
there. I don't know if the twin Jessie is male or female yet but the
spelling with the "ie" makes me think that it might be a girl. Really meant
to try to find her grave site at Old Philadelphia but my Mom just wasn't up
to it! Am gonna check when I go back and the weather is cooler.
