Family History: R J Timmons
Mary Susan was from Young County, so James Samuel would have met her after he moved from Georgia to the Young County and Throckmorton County area. Rhoda Jane was from Ballground, Cherokee County, Georgia, so at some point James Samuel returned to his family's home in Georgia to find his second wife. No doubt, he needed a mother for his nine children. Perhaps that, and having borne two more of her own, had something to do with Rhoda Jane dying at an early age and looking like she was 20 years older than she was. The "baby" would have been 4 when James Samuel married Rhoda Jane, and the oldest two were 19 and 18. Most likely, she only had to mother the ones who were 4, 7, 8, 10, and 13. Daddy Pink would have been 15, and 4 years later, he married Clara McBrayer. Mama was their first child.
