    Notes 
    • Carl B. SYKES (Josie4, John3, Reubin2, Daniel1), a son of Josie Boatright and Newton Herschel Sykes, was born on 14 August 1912 in Emanuel County, Georgia. He was named as a son, aged 7 years, in his mother's household in the 1920 Emanuel County census, and as a surviving son in his mother's 1977 obituary. He also was named as a surviving father in Jimmy Sykes' 1995 obituary.

      He was listed as a boarder in the household of Louis Hicks in the 1930 Emanuel County census. He was recorded as: Carl Sikes, boarder, age 19, single, could read and write, born in Georgia, parents born in Georgia, laborer, general farm, was working at the time of the census, wage earner, was not a veteran.

      Carl lived with his mother in the household of his cousin, Ben Harrison Boatright, when the 1940 Toombs County, Georgia census was taken. Although the census does not state that he worked for his cousin Ben, it is likely that he did. The census provided the following personal information: Carl Sikes, 1st cousin, age 27, single, completed one year of high school, born in Georgia, was at work the week of 24 March, worked 60 hours the week of 24 March, farm laborer, wage earner, worked 25 weeks in 1939, earned wages of $200 in 1939, had no other source of income in 1939.

      He married Ida Lou Stewart. She was born on 2 July 1914 in Treutlen County, Georgia, a daughter of Callie Bell Wilkes and Francis Marion Stewart Sr. She had at least two children before she and Carl were married: W. T. and Rosa Love.

      They had seven children:

      i. Gwendolyn SYKES
      ii. Edna SYKES
      iii. Virgil B. SYKES
      iv. Herbert SYKES
      v. Don Carlos SYKES
      vi. Jimmy SYKES
      vii. Henry A. SYKES

      They lived in Savannah, Chatham County, Georgia, by 1955. The city directory for that year listed Carl as a maintenance man for Am Cyanamid. He and Ida were householders at 540 E. Crescent Street.

      The 1960 Savannah city directory listed Carl as an equipment operator for Porter Trucking and he and Ida were householders at 207 East Drive. Henry A. Sykes, their son, resided with them and worked as a flagman for Porter Trucking.

      Ida died on 5 March 1986 in Chatham County and was buried in Oak Park Cemetery, Oak Park, Emanuel County.

      Carl died on 20 November 1995 in Vidalia, Toombs County, Georgia, and was buried in Oak Park Cemetery beside Ida.
