 (Siblings, spouses and daughters of each)
 Oles Johnson Seymour m. Mamie Catherine/Katherine Boland

Clara Elizabeth Seymour m. Ebb Christian


 Oles Johnson Seymour m. Mamie Catherine/Katherine Boland, parents of Mary Ann Seymour (next generation)

Oles was born on the 22nd of March in 1908 in Elberton, GA.  When he was born his father Ira was 46 and his mom Lizzie was 43.  She had 10 children by 1910 of whom 9 were living in 1910. His mom Lizzie died when he was 12.  Oles died December 1986 in West Columbia, Lexington, SC.

When Oles was but two years of age, his family lived in Goshen, Elbert County,GA.

Mamie was born August 6th 1909 in Ninety-Six SC.  She died two days before Christmas in 1985 in West Columbia, Lexington County, SC. Mamie was the daughter of James Arthur Boland (born 1886 in SC and died in Columbia SC) and his wife Floretta Blanche Jones (died Dec. 24, 1949 at 65 years of age).   

By 1930, Mamie and Oles were living at 412  Sirrine St., Ninety-Six SC.  He was a cloth grader and she a battery filler at a local cotton mill.  They were 21 and 20 years of age.  By 1935 they lived in West Columbia, SC.

In the 1940 Census for SC, Oles and Mamie Catherine were 31 and 30 respectively and had Oles Jr. (9), Myrtie Elizabeth (6), and Mary Ann (3).  Both worked for a spinning mill back in Ninety-Six, SC and lived again at 412 Sirrine St.: 






Clara Elizabeth Seymour m. Ebb Christian, parents of Bertha Florella Christian ("Aunt Florella")

Clara was born 25 Nov 1894 in Elbert County, GA.  She died on 12 Jan 1986 in Greenwood, SC.  Clara married Ebb Christian on Feb. 18, 1914 and they had a daughter Bertha Florella Christian ("Aunt Florella").  Clara lived 91 years!

Aunt Florella was born on the 16th of November in 1914 in Elbert County. She died on Feb. 21, 2014 in Greenwood County, SC.  Lived 99 years!

Per the 1900 Census, Clara's family was living in Goshen, Elbert County, GA.  Clara was 5.  Her dad Ira was a farmer.


Per the 1910 Census, Clara was still in Goshen, 15, and working on her family's farm as a farm laborer.


Interestingly, they the next census in 1920, Clara is 25, has married and divorced and has a 5 year old daughter, Florella.  There are two other children listed (step?) as Odie (?) and Clarence who are 12 and 15.  Clara is living in the same home or next door to her parents, Ira (Irie!) and Lizzie. 


Per the 1930 census Clara was widowed and the head of her household with her daughter Florella (15) and her niece Estella (18)  in Ninety-Six, SC. All three of the women worked: Clara was a cloth grader, Florella was a battery filler, and Estella was a spooler at a spinning mill.  They lived at 418 Sirrene St.


In the 1940 Census (latest one available), Clara and Florella live together in Ninety-Six, SC.  Clara is 45 and widowed and Florella is 25 and single.  Clara is still called Christian which means that she has not remarried.  This makes me wonder if the D for divorce in the 1920 census should have really been a W for widowed.  This would also explain the two sons in the 1920 census, as Ebb's sons whom she cared for after Ebb died.  ???  Both Clara and Florella completed 7th grade only.  Clara is a cloth grader and Florella is a weaver for a cotton mill.


Clara died January 12, 1986 at the age of 91, in Greenwood, SC.


Bertha Florella Christian Smith died February 21, 2014 in Greenwood SC at age 99.  Her Obituary:
