Have you seen a copy of my fathers book "Dockery's of Dixie II"?He has a lot of information about Mahala Palmer b.1831. Mahala (Haley) Palmer had two illigetimate children with my great-grandfather Johnathan Batey Allen.Mahala was the dgt. Nelly Dockery b.1807 and John W. Palmer.Nelly was the dgt. of James William Dockery Sr. b. 1768. Mahala or Haley had six children before she married Mote Johnson.Which child of Haley do you descend from? If you'll email me directly I can probably get you in touch with someone researching your same line.Thanks,Beau firstname.lastname@example.org.
