    Notes 
    • NOTE: Information on M. Elizabeth "Betsey" McCollister and J. J. Davis marriage and family is based on federal census data from Carroll Co., GA., Muscogee, Co., GA., Wood Co., TX. and from records in Muscogee Co., GA., deed book I, p. 334.
      NOTE: See associated 1850, 1860, 1870, & 1880 census data under J. J. Davis' information.

      INDENTURED DEED: Deed records in Muscogee Co., GA., deed book I, p. 334, show J.J. Davis as one of the signers to sell Sarah Bailey McCollister's portion of her father's estate in Carroll Co., GA. Sarah's father was Robert S. Bailey (see full transcription of his will under Robert S. Bailey information). All of the signers of the deed are believed to be Sarah Bailey McCollister's known children and/or their spouses, with the exception of her daughter, Syrena Emaline McCollister. Since J.J. Davis signed the deed, the assumption is that he was a son-in-law of Sarah McCollister and the husband of Betsey, shown as wife of J.J. Davis in the 1850 Carroll Co. census. Therefore, it is assumed that Betsey was a McCollister and was the first born child of Robert and Sarah Bailey McCollister.

      NOTE: M. Elizabeth McCollister and Syrena Emaline McCollister married brothers, i.e., J. J. Davis and Edley J. Davis, Sr.

      NOTE: The obituary of William McCollister, M. Elizabeth McCollister Davis' brother, noted that William was survived by a sister named M. Davis. William died June 24, 1907 in Phenix City, AL. Therefore, we know that M. Elizabeth Davis died after June 24, 1907.
