Children born to this marriage;

Heppie Kearney, born August 22, 1901, married Walter Davis on Dec. 12, 1919 in the home of Rev. Jim Suggs. Walter died March 24, 1974. Heppie, Family and friends celebrated her 99th birthday during this year, 2000. The Town of Stantonsburg, N.C. presented her with a plaque for being the oldest living citizen. Heppie has lived alone since the death of Walter. She looks after the flower money for her Sunday School Class and orders flowers for the "sick",. She has been a faithful member of the Stantonsburg Pentecostal Holiness Church since 1974. A quote from her Granddaughter, Kay Reason; " If you want to get her excited about anything, start talking about religion and politics. She will voice her opinion about those two things loud and clear. Her family loves and respects her. Her wisdom will always be remembered by all of her generations."

NOTE: I personally interviewed this remarkable lady today, 11-18-2000. She attended the White Oak (One Room) School that was located on the Old Saulston-Snow Hill Road as a child. ( In the Greene County History the road was known as the Goldsboro-Greenville road.) She remembers there were 3-4 huge Oak Trees on the grounds. She grew up on the Thomas Kearney farm and she and Walter farmed until they moved to Stantonsburg, N.C. in 1964. This lady's hearing and memory is great and so is her intellect. Her recollected knowledge of our early family was a prize.
