Subject: [WOODHAM] Woodham family in Houston and Geneva Counties in Alabama
Date: Tue, 25 Jan 2000 11:52:13 EST
My husband's 97 year old half sister Eura Searcy Simmons, born in 1902 says
that she knew 2 different Woodham families who lived around the Jelleco
Community off Hwy 84 west near Wicksburg, Alabama.
She said that a Exie Jones (sister to Bob Jones, founder of Bob Jones
University) married a Jesse Woodham. They had about 6 childern who were:
Foster Woodham (who died at about age 14 or 15 when he went into a hole
in a bank and it caved in)
Bessie Woodham (born in about 1902 and was Eura's friend)
Gertrude Woodham (born about 1908)
Claudie Lee Woodham
Jesse Woodham (who was born after his father died)
She didn't know the parents of the other family but she had a friend Flossie
Woodham who was born about 1902. Flossie had a brother J. D. and sisters
Agnes and Blondell.
I would be interested to know how they fit in to the family. I am quite sure
that my father Jesse Burl Woodham, born in 1906 (son of Edward Harley
(Hoke), grandson of Jonathan Robert, great grandson of Edward Harley Sr.) was
named for the senior Jesse.
Perhaps I need to purchase one of Robert Earl's books to find this
relationship, but don't know which one or ones I need.
