Thanks for the reply Richard.I am not acctually a descendant of the Phenix line, but had two gr-gr-aunts who married into the line.These sisters married John LeRoy "Jack" Phenix and Dave Phenix. I believe Dave is a nephew of John LeRoy.
Dave married Esther Pitts and they adopted two children, Bessie and Bennie. Esther died by fire. Her dress caught afire and she burned to death. Do you know what happened to Dave, Bessie and Bennie after Esther's death?
Rebecca Jane "Becky" Pitts married John L. "Jack" PhenixAfter Jack died, she moved in next door to her sisters, Mattie and Susie.She had her house made into a duplex and rented it out. Her neice, my fathers sister, Elta Worsham Robinson and her new husband rented one side of this duplex when they were first married.
I am assuming that James Oscar and John LeRoy were brothers and from the records I posted their parents were Fredrickand Josephine McCreless Phenix.
I have pictures of what my Daddy and I think to be the Phenix farm with Jack, Esther, Bennie, Bessie and Esther's sister Cordell among other people and the black help. Also have one of Dave in his Montgomery Police uniform. I would be glad to scan them for you if you would like.
