This is Jesse Edward Evans and Gracie Snyder Evans holding who we "think" may be our Daddy, Thomas Jefferson Evans.
EUREKA!! It worked!! These are three of the four sons born to Jesse Edward Evans and Gracie Snyder Evans. From left to right: Ceasle "Clyde" Evans, Lee Edward Evans and Thomas Jefferson Evans (our Daddy). Their Aunt Azalean Maude Evans Bryant -- sister to their Daddy Jesse Edward Evans-- raised the boys after their Mom, Gracie Snyder Evans passed away shortly after giving birth to her fourth son, little Jesse Grant Evans...who later died at 5 months of age, due to "the fever" we were told. Their Daddy had to go to Florida for work and was employed, working with the CCC in Stark, Fl. building what is a campground today. One day a traveling photographer came through and Aunt Azalean told us that to get this picture of the boys, she had to call them in from the woods in Fruitdale, Al. give them a "spit-bath" and dress them in their "Sunday=best"....you can TELL they were happy about that!!

Good morning all. This is my paternal ancestors. Some of my cousins are researching the Fales family and we think that the Davis's are in our line somehow. Here I have Davis marrying Fannie Fales. I am not 100% sure if this is the right Davis but our DNA does match many Lott's and Davis'. If anyone has any input, please chime in.

Maternal grandparents. Most if not all lived in Georgia at some point.
Paternal grandparents. All lived in Georgia. Some came from the Carolinas. I'm glad to compare trees or other findings.
