      ==================================================================================email from Margaret Lane, 4/13/2003:
      I found your website today and am proceding from that. The site has been helpful to me, but won't connect me to the Lindsey descendant site. I hope you can help me further my search.

      I am researching my great grandmother, Ella Davis, who was born about 1860 in AL. When she married my great grandfather, Joel Jackson Hood, in Dec. 1880, she was an orphan living at the home of A.J. Waldrop, a Bapt. minister in Jefferson County, AL. Ella Davis is listed as his cousin. Waldrop's mother, Nancy (McClerkin) wife of Robert Waldrop also lives in this home.
      From other info I have obtained, I believe Ella Davis' father was a Matthew Davis, a Civil War Vet who was killed in an accident in Jefferson Co. after the War.
      I have also found that Elizabeth McClerkin's (sister of above Nancy McClerkin Waldrop) married a Michiah Lindsay who had a daughter, Jane, who married a Matthew Davis from Fayette County, AL. I believe it is their son, Matthew, who is the father of my Ella Davis.
      Unfortunately, Ella Davis Hood died when my grandfather was very young, and he never knew about her family.

      If you have any info on these people to help me "prove" this line, I would love to see it.
      Thank you so much.
