Yes. My mother, Debbie Spann Holden, was raised by her. I did have a picture of Bama Spann. She was indeed Cherokee Indian. I have tons of stories from my mother. Bama was an amazing woman! :)
My grandfather was Fred Spann. I also had a picture of Daniel Spann (and stories!). is my email if you wish to write me back. I am on Facebook too.

In regards to your question about Charles' 2nd wife. Her name on her headstone reads Lonnie W Davis. You may find some answers you are looking for under Charlie Lonzo "Lon" Davis. If you don't find it that way, try Charlie Davis Family Tree. I believe it will be worth your while to look there. You will find census, grave sites and stones, and service information.

Henry Daniel and his parents are buried at Mt. Zion Primitive Baptist Church, where he and his father served as pastors. There are other members of the family buried there, also.
Do you have the book Scattered Thoughts..... I would love to get a copy or copies of the book.

John W. Pelham(Pellum) was my G-G-G-grandfather. His daughter, Rebecca is my g-g-grandmother. Daniel Henry was born in Sumter County, Georgia as was my gggrandmother. He was born February 11, 1831 and died January 3, 1915. He and his parents and other family members are buried in the Mt. Zion Primitive Baptist in Henry County, Alabama. John W. Pelham started the church and served as the first pastor. Later, Daniel Henry served for several years.
DO YOU HAVE A COPY OF THE BOOK WRITTEN BY DANIEL HENRY...Scattered Thoughts of a Simple Minded Man? I was sent copies of several pages, but would love to have copies of all pages. I find it so interesting! I'll try to talk with others to determine the story of the young man.

This is my family.

Peacock family

Tue, 03/01/2016 - 22:53
My g-g-grandfather was Daniel Jordan Peacock, b. 1828 in Henry County, son of Washington Peacock & Elizabeth Pennington Peacock. He married Cassandra Dixon in the 1853. My grandfather told me that there we had Cherokee ancestors, but I never questioned him further. I've contacted a few Peacock cousins & they said they'd heard it, too, & one cousin said that Cassandra was possibly full-blooded Cherokee, adopted by her stepfather, Mr. Dixon. My mom's DNA shows only a very small bit (1%) of Native American. I haven't been able to get any information on Cassandra other than she was born in Georgia & her parents were Dempsy Smith & John Dixon. In the photos I have she doesn't look Native American, although her sisters do. I found a direct female line descendant cousin who did the mt-DNA test for me & it showed a Spanish haplogroup. So, anyone else descended from Daniel (or DJ, as I believe he was called) and Cassie Peacock who know the Cherokee story? I'm also starting to wonder if Elizabeth Pennington, who is also an unknown beyond being born abt 1797 in S. Carolina, might be Native American.

Re: Matilda Caroline Mayo

Per census', Matilda had 6 children with 4 still alive for the 1920 census. The children I found were: Mary K. (b. 1857), Samuel (1859), Joel Columbus (1861), Reason (1870), and james (1873). One must have died very young. I estimate Matilda and Richard Mayo married circa 1855-56, probably in Holmes Co., Fla. (where all of the children were born). Richard was born 1837 in Florida. During their marriage it appears they had 2 or 3 children.

Sons , Joel (b. 1861), Reason (1870), and James (1873) indicated their father was born in Georgia. (NOTE: In 1861 Matilda seems to still be married to Richard, who
was born in Florida.) It seems Matilda was having an affair while Richard was still a live and it continued for several more years. After 1860 she never indicated a man in her life. Bob Eddings.i

Matilda Caroline Norris-Mayo is my 3rd great grandmother. She never remarried after Richard Columbus Mayo died. If she would have remarried, she would have lost his Civil War pension. Matilda Caroline Mayo is buried at Otter Creek Methodist Church Cemetery in Ponce de Leon, Florida. She is buried 1 grave to the left of her son, Reason and his wife Mary. Although, she never remarried, it is impossible for Richard to be Reason and James Mayo's father. That is the question that needs answered.

Re: Elizabeth Calloway and Talmon Wright Harbour

Thank you for responding and posting helpful information. No, she wasn't a slave. I will keep trying to search for other types of records. Some people say my Elizabeth is THE Elizabeth of the Daniel Boone daughter rescue fame but that Elizabeth married Samuel Henderson. I am looking for any info on Elizabeth Calloway and Talmon Wright Harbour. Thanks.
