    Notes 
    • 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.
