*This is not my family, just sharing from the newspaper archives of the Mobile Public Library. However, I believe this man is the son of Lorenzo R Danzey & Mary Pringle who is listed in the 1900 Clarke Co AL census as b Nov 1878. The brother listed as Bettis/Bettio S b 1871 is actually Lorenzo B Danzey.
