    Notes 
    • Maggie Mozelle HENDLEY, a daughter of Emily Angie Ronie Boatright and George M. Hendley, was born on 8 October 1895 in Emanuel County, Georgia. She was named as a daughter, aged 4 years, in her parents' household in the 1900 Emanuel County census, as aged 14 years in her mother's household in the 1910 census, and as aged 23 years in her brother's household in the 1920 census. She also was named as a surviving daughter in her mother's 1934 obituary, and as a surviving sister in Annie Hendley McNure's 1972 obituary.

      She was residing with her mother in Effingham County when the 1930 Effingham County census was taken. They were recorded in the household of Ola Exley as follows: Ronie Hendley, head, rented home at $3 rental, age 68, widowed, could read and write, born in Georgia, parents born in Georgia; and, Maggie, daughter, age 34, single, born in Georgia, parents born in Georgia, teacher, public school, wage earner, was working at the time of the census.

      Maggie was recorded in the 1940 Emanuel County census as living in a rented house in Garfield. She paid $3 a month for the rent. Other information in the census included: Miss Maggie Hendley, head, age 44, single, completed three years of college, born in Georgia, lived in Emanuel County on 1 April 1935, was at work the week of 24 March, worked 30 hours the week of 24 March, teach at public school, government worker, worked 36 weeks in 1939, earned salary of $645 in 1939.

      Cathie Sweat Dean contributed her memories of Maggie:

      "Aunt Maggie" was the youngest child of
      George and Angie Ronie Hendley. Because
      Maggie never married or had children, she
      became everyone's favorite aunt. She once
      said that she had a boyfriend at one point
      in time, but because her Daddy died when
      she was 13, she felt it was her
      responsibility to stay home and help her
      Momma take care of things. So she lived at
      home until she went off to college earning
      her teaching certificate and began a very
      long career in teaching. If a niece or
      nephew needed any educational coaching,
      Aunt Maggie was there to help out.
      My mother, Faye McNure, was one of these.
      Faye had a little difficulty with spelling,
      so Maggie did her best to teach Faye how to
      spell. Faye returned the favor by teaching
      Maggie how to drive. Maggie bought a brand
      new car and had Faye drive her to Ellerbe,
      NC to visit Vera and give driving lessons
      along the way. They managed to survive.
      Maggie learned to drive, but I?m not sure
      Faye totally mastered spelling. Maggie and
      Faye shared a birthday, October 8, and
      therefore shared a special fondness for
      each other.
      Once when Maggie was in her 90s, I dropped
      in to see her quite unexpectedly. She was
      thrilled to see me; hugged and kissed and
      hugged and kissed me. Then she held me at
      arms length, looked me in the eye and said,
      "Well, I know you, but I don't know you."
      When I identified myself as Cathie, she
      hugged and kissed and hugged and kissed me
      again.
      At Homer and Ollie's 50th anniversary,
      their great-grandson, Daniel Hewett who was
      three-years-old, came up to Aunt Maggie and
      started talking to her about her walking
      stick. Soon he was in her lap hugging her,
      then he told his mother to pack his bags,
      he was going home with Aunt Maggie.
      I'm sure there are very many other
      stories from the various nieces and nephews.
      Maggie's number one talent was loving
      children and I am honored to have been one
      of those she loved.

      Maggie died on 3 February 1995 in Metter, Candler County and was buried in Hebron Church Cemetery, Emanuel County.
