* 1869 Old Tish. Co., MS assessment rolls G.W. Voyles
* They were living in Alabama in 1860. There are several children listed with them, but we believe most of these children are from George's first marriage to Mandy Narramore (Elizabeth's sister).
Elizabeth and George are back in Alcorn Co., MS in 1870 with two new sons, Oscar (1860) and Curlee (1864). By 1880 they have a daughter, Isabelle (1871). There are several stories told about her (Elizabeth). One was she used to stand in her doorway and call her cow home at night. Another time she stood in her door with an ax in her hand and faced the Indians. She told them, "Bless God, if anyone lays a hand on my cow, I'll chop off their heads." They left and she was not harmed. Another story was when she was younger. She was gathering wood to cook in the fireplace and was bitten by a snake. She killed the snake and took it to the house so that if she died they would know what happened to her. She was lying by the gate calling for help when Bill Mattox heard her. They killed a black hen, split it open and wrapped her leg where she was bitten. They say the fresh blood and warm body of the hen drew the poison from her body. Elizabeth lived to be 107 years old. They say she was picking cotton the day before she died. She died in Sept. 1925 and is buried at Union Church. (Information provided by: Mrs. Norbin (Lila) Briggs Voyles.)
