Overby is the main name on my list as this was my maiden name. Peter and Ann Overby were my ancestors, their son Obediah I the Obediah II then James Nathanial Overby who married Lucy Payne Jelks of Petersburg. James served as a Cannoneer in the Civil War and was from Virgilina. His sister Martha married James Winkfield Talley. James and Lucy came to Georgia in 1870 and he died in 1895. Lucy died in 1927 and is buried in the Shilo Methodish Church Cemetery on Double Churches Road in Columbus, GA Muscogee County. Their son Charles Payne Overby was my Great Grandfather. His son Charles Herman Overby, Sr. had Charles Herman Overby Jr. and then there's me Betty Jean Overby Harron. Anyone who wants more of my line let me know I love to trade info on the Overby's and I have quiet a bit.

Surnames: Overby
My grandfather was Robert Flournoy Overbey. (Note the change in spelling. I find this frequently when looking for information on the Overbey's of Mecklenburg Co.) He was born in 1903 and grew up near Buffalo Junction and moved to Richmond in his early 20's. His father was Robert Camillus Overbey b.? and his mother was Nannie O'Julia Tillotson. He had 8 brothers and sisters. His grandfather was Camillus Overbey, and I have been told that he was killed in the civil war when the train he was on blew up. My grandfather's brothers were: Luberle Lafayette b. 189?, Cabell, & Marvin. His sisters were Mary Peele, Rosa, Maureen, Virginia (who is still living) and another sister whose name I cannot remember. I was hoping someone could help clarify the different spelling of names. (Overby & Overbey) Also, if someone knows anything about my great-great grandparents, I would appreciate any information.

Surnames: OVERBEY
Camillus Overbey was Robert Camillus OVERBY b 1838 in
Mecklenburg Co., VA, married to Anna Nelson Williams.
Robert Camillus Overby was the son of Robert Yancy Overbey
(b. 33-17-1797, d. 1872) married to Mary Pettipool in 1820.
Mary was the daughter of Stephen Pettipool.

Robert Yancy Overby was the son of Peter Z. Overbey
(b. ca 1720, d. 1824) married to Ann Yancy (d.1859).
Most of these families lived & died in Mecklenburg, and
the Overbys are buried in a family cemetery in what is
now Clarksville.

As far as the spelling, my family always spelled it w/ an
"e": Overbey. However, there are several spellings, in-
cluding Overbee & OVERBURY. An excellent book is:
THE OVERBURY STORY by Libby Overby, L-O-C# 87-83688.
She does the Overby genealogy back to England w/ a great
many pictures & good documentation.

Surnames: Yancey, Jones, Griffin, Tillotson, Wall
I am a descendant of Robert Yancey and Mrs. Philadelphia (Jones)Griffin, widow of Francis Griffin and d/o John Jones. Their daughter, Delphia, maried John Tillotson, and Lucy Tillotson, d/o of John and Delphia (Yancey) Tillotson, married my great great grandfather Elam S. Wall in Mecklenburg County, Virginia.

Elam and Lucy(Tillotson) Wall had eight children, one daugter and seven sons. The youngest child, Andrew Jackson Wall, was my great grandfather. This branch of the family left Mecklenburg County and moved to Georgia after the 1840 census. Most are buried in the historic old Memory Hill Cemetery in Milledgeville, Baldwin County, Georgia.

Would like to share information with you!
