My father, Mr. John W. Buie, was born or raised at or somewhere near

first wife died or not but I have been told she did. About the year 1860

he came to Ga. and within a year or two married Miss Marry McVeigh, she

Mother's History:

I don't know but precious little about my mother. She died when I was only

2 years old. I know very little about the love of a mother experimentally,

but from what I have been informed about my mother I believe when the Lord

comes to make up his jewels - at the sounding of the first trumpet when the

dead in Christ shall rise at the last that I shall meet my precious mother

and that we shall put on imortality and be imortalized together never more

to part. Sweetly sleep my precious motheruntill we meet again in the

resurection morning.
