2. MIRIAM ELLEN WESTBERRY (RABON KNIGHTEN3, RABUN2, MOSES1) was born August 1874 in Georgia, and died in Georgia. She married RICHARD WASHINGTON BUNKLEY. He was born June 1866 in Camden Co, Georgia, and died December 02, 1943 in Glynn Co, Georgia.
Notes for MIRIAM ELLEN WESTBERRY:
There is considerable doubt as to the parentage of Miriam. Some say the father was Rabun Westberry, son of Moses Sr. Some say it was Asa Coleman, the mothers first husband.
Some, including myself, think she was an illigitimate daughter of Nighten Westberry (his name was Rabon Knighten Westberry), and her mother, Caroline Strickland Coleman.
There does seem to be a big coverup of the parentage by the descendants.
She is listed as Ellen Westberry on her daughters death certificate.
My best guess of her death is about 1908, possibly childbirth related, unless they divorced.

3. ASA "ACY" WESTBERRY (RABON KNIGHTEN3, RABUN2, MOSES1) was born December 25, 1890 in Tattnall Co, Georgia, and died January 31, 1944 in Toombs Co, Georgia. He married MARY JANE REWIS. She was born April 02, 1890, and died October 17, 1967 in Toombs Co, Georgia.

Asa Westberry, 32; Mary J., 29; Lum, 10; Lula M., 9; Clifton, 5; Annie l., 4-4/12; Ella R., 1-3/12.
Sept 7, 2000. I was told by the wife of Asa's son Rabon, that Asa was a half-brother of his siblings. She also said that Asa's mother was named Sarah Screws.
(A personal visit to Rabon and Ethel in late 2002 confirmed the above.)
This family did not know of Moses Westberry or of Rabun, CSA.
Asa is listed in the Georgia death index as Acy, age 63, died January 31, 1944 in Toombs Co, Georgia, but these two census records show a different age. His grave marker shows December 25, 1880.
Asa could not have been born in 1880 as his mother Sarah, sister to Delilah "Lila" , was born in 1870, as shown in the 1870-1880 census of Tattnall Co, Georgia.
(That above can be wrong, but I tend to believe the census reports. However, this family is full of surprises.)

Melvin Thomas Davis/Finney
Dear Little Brother!
He was born to Jesse Lee Davis and Martha Sarah Westberry in Georgia. Our parents divorced and Melvin was adopted. He became a Finney.
Melvin was a stranger to me. I never met him. He had many demons that tortured him from day one. He went to prison for wrong doing. On October 10, 1996 he committed suicide while in prison. He hanged himself.
He married Dena Beeler and divorced. He had no children.
He had a tragic life to me. I can only guess at the pain he went through.
In my family we all inherited chemical embalances of the brain.
Melvin I never met you! I never knew you! But you will always be my Baby Brother!
May the Father give you the love you never got while here on earth. I will always love you.
Good Rest to you Little Brother.
