I can help you with your Ally: she is one of 9 children born to William J. 'Billie' McGahee and Drucilla Newsome. Their children were :Mollie, Ally, Electus, Seth, Jephunius, Isabella, Susie, Lanie, and Ellie. I don't have any dates for the children.

William J. 'Billie' was born 8 Mar 1843; died in 1896
Drucilla Newsome was born 1850; died in 1889 or 1896
Both are buried at Iron Hill Cemetery

'Billie' was the oldest child of Andrew 'Jackson' McGahee and Mary Russell.

Hope this helps; let me know if you're interested in more information.

Joseph, I am interested in Drucilla Newsome. Do you know who her parents and grandparents were? I have a Newsom/Newsome line and would try to make a connection.

This is what I have about Drucilla Newsome: Married to William J. (Billie) McGahee with whom she had 9 children: Mollie, Ally, Electus, Seth, Jephunius, Isabella, Susie, Lanie, and Ellie. Sorry, I have no dates for the children. I have her death date as "1896 or 1889 and is buried at Iron Hill Cemetery" in McDuffie County, Georgia. Sorry, this is all I have about Drucilla. Hopefully you can make a connection through one of her children.

Joseph,
I believe this Druscilla is the daughter of Randall and Laney Phillips Newsom. They were married 7 Jan 1845. Their daughter, Druscilla was born 1850 and died 1889. If you have more on their children, I would like to exchange info with you. I have Druscilla's siblings.

If the Laney you want was the daughter of William "Buck" and Susan McGahee Phillips, she is the sister to my ggrandfather James Benjamin Phillips. She was named for Susan's mother Laney Smith McGahee. According to what I have, she was born in 1828 and died 1914 possibly in Lowndes Co. (Valdosta)Ga. She was their second child and second daughter. I checked my Lowndes Cemetery Book and marriage book and I do not see her name but I know William and Susan are buried in the Old Redland Baptist Church Cemetery. I am just beginning to get involved in genealogy so I am not real certain as to what I am doing. Take care, Faye
