Emma Demaris Dotson Alley Ireson b 1862 d. 1938 married Benjamin Alley (3 descendents) and James Ireson (7 decendents.)
Her parents are Simon and Sarah Alley Dotson.
Does anyone have information on this line.
In particular I am looking for how the "Demaris" middle name emerged. I am the fifth generation that I am aware of to carry the name- no spelled "Demeris." I am wondering if it was originally a surname.
If anyone has any information on the Alley ~ Dotson relationship (Note Sarah's maiden name is Alley,)on where the Demeris was introduced and how or other information on this line, please let me know.
