151 John Pickney BOATRIGHT, the oldest of six children of Eva Mae Smith and Robert Lewis Boatright, was born on 17 September 1914 in Emanuel County, Georgia. He was named as a son, aged 5 years, in his parents' household in the 1920 Emanuel County census, as age 15 in the 1930 Emanuel County census, and as age 25 in the 1940 Emanuel County census. He also was listed as a surviving son in his parents' obituaries and will. In addition, he was listed as a surviving brother in Mildred Boatright's 1942 obituary.

Other than a year as a young child, when he lived in Jeff Davis County, and the years spent in the U. S. Navy, he was a life-long resident of Emanuel County where he was a farmer.

J. P. enlisted in the Navy on 18 August 1941 and saw service during World War II. A tribute to J. P.?s World War II naval service was printed in the Swainsboro Forest-Blade. The article stated:

He joined the United States Navy on August 18,
1941. He was assigned to the aircraft carrier
the USS Hornet (CV8). In March of 1942 he sailed
aboard the Hornet to San Francisco. There 16
Army B-25 Bombers along with their crews,
commanded by Lieutenant Colonel James H. Doolittle,
were loaded aboard the Hornet. The Hornet and her
crew then sailed deep into enemy waters for what
would be the first bombing raid of the war on
Tokyo. SF2 Boatright along with the rest of the
Hornet?s crew then headed for Pearl Harbor. The
Hornet participated in the battle of the Coral Sea
then headed north for the Battle of Midway, playing
a major role in the sinking of four Japanese
carriers and two cruisers. The Battle of Midway
has been referred to as the greatest carrier battle
in history. After the Battle of Midway the Hornet
sailed south to guard the sea approach to Guadalcanal
in the Solomon Islands. In the Battle of Santa Cruz
Island on October 26, 1942, the Hornet was so
severely damaged from heavy dive bombing and torpedo
plane attacks that the crew was ordered to abandon
ship. The crew remained in the water some seventy
two hours as the battle continued and rescue was
hampered by enemy planes and ship activity. The
crew gathered in groups in the sea to ward off
shark attacks. Ships would come in to rescue the
crew only to be forced to withdraw by enemy activity.
Finally rescue came. SF2 Boatright was among those
rescued.

The Hornet's crew was rescued by the U.S.S. Enterprise. While on the Enterprise, J. P. participated in the Battle of Guadalcanal from 12-14 November 1942 and the battle of Rennell Island in January 1943. He was honorably discharged from the Navy as a Shipfitter Second Class, at the USN Personnel Separation Center NAS, Charleston, South Carolina on 14 September 1945.

He was a longtime member of Garfield Baptist Church. He was a pallbearer at the funerals of his uncle Ruben Boatright and aunt America Cowart Boatright in 1947, for his uncle Benjamin Boatright in 1951, and for his uncle William Oustin Findley in 1969.

He married Mildred Hendrix on 23 September 1944 in Emanuel County, GA. She was born on 28 March 1926 in Bulloch County, Georgia, a daughter of Essie Lee Cowart and Charlie H. Hendrix. After their marriage, they lived for a short time in Portsmouth, VA until J. P. was separated from the Navy. They returned to Garfield where J. P. farmed with his father and was assisted by Mildred.

They had three children:

i. John Lewis BOATRIGHT
ii. Joy Ann BOATRIGHT

180 Loraine Wilson BOATRIGHT (Jadie Davis4, Charles3, Reubin2, Daniel1), a son of Lillian Ruth Blackburn and Jadie Davis Boatright, was born on 3 April 1917 in Emanuel County, Georgia. He was named as their child, aged 3 years and 6 months, in the 1920 Emanuel County census and as aged 13 in the 1930 Emanuel County census. He also was named as a surviving son in his mother's 1943 obituary and in his father's 1965 obituary. In addition, he was named as a deceased son in Jadie's will.

Loraine served in the U. S. Marines from at least 27 June 1935 until at least 30 December 1940. He was stationed at the Marine Recruit Barracks in Parris Island, South Carolina; Norfolk Navy Yard, Portsmouth, Virginia; New Orleans, Louisiana; on the U.S.S. Colorado; U.S.S. Henderson; U.S.S. Fairfax; U.S.S. Saratoga; Honolulu; San Francisco; U.S.S. Taylor; Coco Solo, Canal Zone; U.S.S. Dallas; and Charleston, South Carolina. The muster rolls are not available after December 1940 but, for the four-and-a-half years in which they are, Loran did not stay very long at any one barracks or on any one ship. He often saw service twice in a station, or perhaps more often. His duty in Portsmouth, Virginia, offers a possible explanation for his Social Security card being issued in Virginia.

He was recorded in the 1940 Portsmouth, Virginia census as follows: Loraine W. Boatright, lodger, age 22, single, completed four years of high school, born in Georgia, lived in Swainsboro, Georgia on 1 April 1935, was at work the week of 24 March, worked 56 hours the week of 24 March, clerk, retail grocery, paid wages, worked 52 weeks in 1939, earned wages of $800 in 1939, had no other source of income.

Loran and family lived at 231 North Main Street in Swainsboro. In 1954, their garage burned and its contents were destroyed although Susie was able to get the car out before it was damaged.

Loran was active in Masonic affairs and was elected senior warden for Swainsboro Masonic Lodge No. 244 in 1959. He died before finishing his term, on 17 September 1959 in Swainsboro, and was buried in Swainsboro City Cemetery, Emanuel County.

Susie was a member of Eastern Star and was a beautician.

After Loran's death, Susie and her children maintained family relationships with Loran's parents and other relatives.

She married Luther Gordon Coleman in Swainsboro on 8 April 1961. They probably were divorced as Luther died on 3 June 1971 in Emanuel County and his obituary did not mention Susie as a surviving wife.

She married third Milton N. Schulman on 1 January 1965 in Emanuel County. She probably divorced him, too, since she died before he did (24 January 1993) and her obituary did not name him as a survivor. In any event, despite the marriages, Susie continued to be referred to in various news articles as Mrs. Boatright.

In 1964, the Swainsboro City Directory listed Mattie as residing at 104 Lewis Street in Swainsboro and the operator of Susie's Beauty Shop. She still was listed at that address in 1973 and the operator of Susie's Beauty Shop, but the directory also added that she was the widow of Loran W.

Susie made out her will on 16 September 1985. She named her children, John W. Boatright and James L. Boatright, as well as her sister, Carolyn Lovins, and her brother, James Lovins. The will was witnessed by Lois R. Scott and W. E. Rountree.

Susie died on 23 September 1990 in Augusta, Richmond County and was buried in Swainsboro City Cemetery.

190 Martha "Mattie" BOATRIGHT (Reubin3, Reubin2, Daniel1), the only child of Sarah Martin and Reubin Boatright Jr., was born on 26 December 1884 in Emanuel County, Georgia. She was named as a daughter, aged 15 years, in her parents' household in the 1900 Emanuel County census. She also was named as a daughter in her father's 1911 obituary. In addition, she was named as a surviving sister in Josie Drew Boatright's 1938 obituary.

Sarah Martin, Mattie's mother, had been married twice before she married Reubin Boatright, Mattie's father. One of Sarah's children by Josiah Drew, her first husband, was Josie Drew, who married Charles Boatright. Charles was Mattie's uncle - her father's brother. So, Mattie was both half-sister to Josie and Josie's niece by marriage.

She married William Walter McMahon in Emanuel County on 28 October 1906. He was born on 12 January 1872 in Augusta, Richmond County, Georgia, a son of William and Sarah McMahon.

In the 1910 Emanuel County census, the family was recorded as follows: Walter McMahon, age 32, married twice, married 3 years, painter; Mattie, wife, age 24, mother of one child; Walter C. McMahon, son, age 2; Rubin Boatright, father-in-law, age 79, married twice, married 26 years; Sarah, mother-in-law, age 60, married three times, mother of four children, all living.

They were enumerated in the 1920 Emanuel County census as follows: Walter McMahon age 48, born in Georgia; Mattie, wife, age 35; and Walter Jr., son, age 11.

In 1930 the family rented a house at 236 Luckey Street in Swainsboro. They were recorded there in the 1930 census with the following information: Walter McMahon, head, rented house at a rental of $15, did not live on a farm, age 57, age 33 when first married, could read and write, born in Georgia, parents born in Georgia, house painter, wage earner, was working at the time of the census, was not a veteran; and, Mattie, wife, housekeeper, age 45, age 20 when first married, could read and write, born in Georgia, parents born in Georgia. Living in the same residence, but listed as a sub-household, was son Walter Jr. and his wife Mary. Walter Junior, also a house painter, probably worked with his father.

Mattie and Walter had one child:

i. Walter Conway McMAHON

Mattie and Walter moved from Swainsboro to return to Walter's hometown, Augusta, about 1935. A social item in a 1936 Swainsboro newspaper noted that "Mr. and Mrs. Walter McMahon of Augusta are visiting friends and relatives here this week." The 1937 Augusta city directory recorded them as: W. Walter McMahon (Martha B.), residents at 1908 Watkins Street. Their son and his family also lived with them. By 1938 they had moved to 1428 Cooper Street where they were listed as Walter F. McMahon (Martha M.). Their son and his family also moved with them. They continued to live at the Cooper Street address with his son and family according to the 1939 city directory.

The family continued to rent the house at 1428 Cooper Street and paid rent of $12 a month. They were recorded there in the 1940 Richmond County census (with many errors) as follows: Walton McHore, head, age 36, married, completed eight grades of school, born in Georgia, lived in Swainsboro, Emanuel County, Georgia on 1 April 1935, was at work the week of 24 March, worked 42 hours the week of 24 March, painter in construction, wage earner, worked 50 weeks in 1939, earned wages of $760 in 1939; had no other source of income in 1939; Mattie [the name Mary was added and circled] McHore, answered census questions, wife, age 28, married, completed one year of high school, born in Georgia, lived in Swainsboro, Emanuel County, Georgia on 1 April 1935, engaged in housework; Walton J. McHore, son, age 11, attended school, completed five grades of school, born in Georgia, lived in Swainsboro, Emanuel County, Georgia on 1 April 1935; Mary A. McHore, daughter, age 9, attended school, completed three grades of school, born in Georgia, lived in Swainsboro, Emanuel County, Georgia on 1 April 1935; Barbara E. McHore, daughter, age 7, attended school, completed one grade of school, born in Georgia, lived in Swainsboro, Emanuel County, Georgia on 1 April 1935; and, Martha L. McHore, daughter, age 3, born in Georgia.

In 1940, they also were recorded in the city directory as residents of 1921 Fenwick Street, with their son and his family, so they probably moved from Cooper Street soon after the census. The Fenwick home was to be their permanent home as is shown by a series of city directories which listed them, with their son and his family, at the Fenwick address. After Walter's death, Martha was listed by the city directories as the widow of Walter.

Walter died in at his home, 1921 Fenwick Street, in Augusta on 21 March 1952. He was buried at West View Cemetery, Augusta.

Mattie remained in the Fenwick residence in Augusta for the rest of her life. She died on 1 December 1966 and was buried at West View beside her husband Walter. 
Martha BOATRIGHT
 
191 Martha BOATRIGHT, the sixth child of Lacy Bishop and Reubin Boatright, was born 3 January 1836 in Emanuel County, Georgia. She was included in the 1850 Emanuel County census, age 13, in her father?s household.

She married James S. Wallace on 23 April 1855 in Emanuel County, Georgia.

In the 1860 Screven County, Georgia census, the family was enumerated as follows: J. S. Wallace, age 38, farmer, $1,000 value of real estate, $400 value of personal estate, born in Georgia; M. Wallace, age 23, born in Georgia; J. J. Wallace, age 15, male, farm laborer; G. A. Wallace, age 14, female; Adam Wallace, age 12, male; M. J. Wallace, age 9, female; J. P. Wallace, age 9, male; D. D. Wallace, age 9, male; Freeman J. Wallace, age 6, male; Nancy S. Wallace, age 3, female; Hariet Wallace, age 10/12, female; all born in Georgia. The older children probably were James? by an earlier marriage.

Martha and James had the following children:

i. Nancy S. WALLACE
ii. Harriet WALLACE
iii. Drucilla WALLACE
iv. Eliza M. WALLACE

James died about 1866 and, according to family tradition, his death was attributable to his service in the Confederate Army. Although I am not certain that I have located the correct individual, a J. S. Wallace was enlisted in Company B, 12th Battalion Georgia Light Artillery on 29 September 1863 at Decatur, Georgia by Major Andrews. He apparently was drafted because a remark was made on one of the National Archives service records cards that he was sent from conscript camp and no bounty is indicated. He appears on two receipt rolls for clothing issued on 5 November 1864 and 24 December the same year. The company muster roll for March and April 1864 indicated that he was present for duty, but sick.

Martha also died about 1866. Reubin Boatright Jr., Martha?s brother, was made administrator of their estate and guardian of their children. The children were separated and went to live with Martha?s brothers and sisters. 
Martha BOATRIGHT

196 Mary Ann BOATRIGHT (Reubin2, Daniel1), a daughter of Lacy Bishop and Reubin Boatright, was born on 17 August 1818 in Emanuel County, Georgia.

At the age of 23, Mary Ann married John T. Burt in October 1841 in Emanuel County, Georgia. They were enumerated in the 1850 Emanuel County census as follows: John T. Burt, age 46, $400 value of real estate, born in Virginia, farmer; Mary, age 28, born in Georgia; John, age 4, born in Georgia; and Nancy, age 1, born in Georgia.

The 1850 slave schedule also indicated that John owned one male slave.

They had three children:

i. John T. BURT Jr.
ii. Nancy Missouri BURT
iii. Alice V. BURT

John paid 31.2 cents for 1851 taxes on one poll in Emanuel County. There was no tax on any land, so he probably was farming for a land owner.

John probably died between 1855 and 1859.

Mary Ann married as her second husband Michael Hooks in Emanuel County on 22 December 1859. Michael was born about 1800.

The family was recorded in the 1860 census as follows: Mikiel Hooks, age 63, farmer, $800 real estate, $2,400 personal estate, born in Georgia. cannot read or write; Mary, age 40, born in Georgia, cannot read or write; James Hooks, age 18, born in Georgia; John Burt, age 14, born in Georgia, attended school within year; Mosury Burt, age 11, born in Georgia, attended school within year; and Aliecen Burt, age 6, born in Georgia.

The slave schedule of 1860 indicated that Michael owned four slaves: one black woman and three mulatto children all under the age of seven.

Michael took the oath "to support the Constitution and obey the laws of the United States, and will to the best of my ability encourage others to do so" in Emanuel County on 16 July 1867. He was a resident of the 49th Precinct. He signed his name with an X.

In the 1870 Emanuel County census, Mary Ann was enumerated in the household of Mitchel Hooks [i.e. Michael] as follows: Mitchel Hooks, age 69, farmer, $1000 real estate, $1200 personal estate, born in Georgia, cannot read, cannot write; Mary, age 52, keeps house, born in Georgia, cannot write; Allice V. Burt, age 15, keeps house, born in Georgia, cannot write; Drewsiller Wallace, age 8, at home, born in Georgia. Although no relationships are stated in the 1870 census, Alice was Mary Ann?s daughter by her first marriage. Drucilla, or ?Drewsiller,? was the daughter of Martha Boatright Wallace, Mary Ann?s sister who reputedly died about 1866.

Both Mary and Michael appear on a 25 July 1876 membership list of the Canoochee Baptist Church, and then again on a 15 August 1878 membership list.

In the 1880 Emanuel County Census, the family was listed as follows: Michael Hooks, age, 80, farmer, cannot write, born in Georgia, parents born in Maryland; Mary, age 60, wife, cannot read or write, born in Georgia, parents born in Georgia. They were residing next to John and Nancy Boatright (Mary Ann?s brother) on one side, and on the other side was Jeremiah Hooks, Michael?s son.

Michael died sometime between the 1880 census and 21 May 1883. The latter date was when the Court directed Jeremiah Hooks, administrator of Michael's estate, to execute a deed for the land that Michael had sold to John Boatright. No children are known from this marriage.

According to the Boatright Bible, Mary Ann died in 1885 and was buried near Garfield. A great-granddaughter indicated that she was buried in the Hooks Family Cemetery, located on the west side of GA St. Rt 23 between Twin City and Garfield. 
Mary Ann BOATRIGHT
 
197 Mary C. "Polly" BOATRIGHT (Reubin3, Reubin2, Daniel1), the third child of Julia Ann Sconyers and Reubin Boatright Jr., was born about 1858 in Emanuel County, Georgia. She was included in her parents' household in the 1860 Bryan County, Georgia census as Polly, aged 2 years, and in the 1870 census as Mary C., aged 11 years. Since "Polly" is a nickname for "Mary," this is probably the same individual.

There is a Pollie O. Cowart, born 7 July 1849, died 1889, buried in Hawhammock Cemetery. Her tombstone is inscribed "Daughter of Rubin Boatright."

In the 1880 census Reubin Cowart, age 4 months, was listed as a grandson in the household of Reubin Boatright. Although Polly was not in the household, this might have been her child. She was not listed as a surviving child in her father's 1911 obituary. No further information.

She married Absolum P. Deal in Emanuel County on 22 August 1876. He was born on 6 October 1857 in Emanuel County, Georgia, a son of Harriet Proctor and William A. Deal. He was a brother to Nancy Ann Deal, who was to become John Boatright's second wife. He was a farmer.

Although the 1880 census is very difficult to read, the family possibly was enumerated as follows: Absolum Deal, age 22, farmer, cannot read and write, born in Georgia, parents born in Georgia; Mary Jane, age 20, wife, cannot read and write, born in Georgia, parents born in Georgia; Harriet A., age 2, daughter born in Georgia, parents born in Georgia; and Joanna, daughter, age 10 months, born July, born in Georgia, parents born in Georgia.
