Notes
a. Note:   *You will notice that Thomas Andrew Davis was not buried in the Red Bluff Cemetery, Treutlen County, Georgia along with his wife
Cemantha and their children instead. Instead, Thomas Andrew was
buried in a family plot called the Davis -Spivey Cemetery about
five miles distance from the Red Bluff Church Cemetery. For
several years as I was researching this family, I could not
understand why Thomas Andrew was the only one of his immediate
family buried in the Davis-Spivey burial ground. After the
relationship with Mariah was uncovered i now understand why he
was buried alone. Thomas Andrew was a large man, very athletic,
stood about 6 feet 4 inches tall and exceptionally strong.
Tradition states that he was the undisputed champion of his area
in regards to fisticuffs. He was often pitted against men, the
strongest to be found, from other parts of the country sponsored
by the Millers of Montgomery County. It is stated that Thomas
Andrew never lost a fight (It was a custom in those days for men
to gather in the small towns on Saturday afternoons and hold
these contests) Also, Thomas Andrew was known as a "ladies man".
