 William Elijah Ammons (Sarah M. Leatherman), 1861 - 1931

Note: In 1860, George Ammons and Nancy Childers Ammons resided in Cowee, Macon Co, NC. In
1870, Nancy and son William, age 8, were living with William Beasley, 67, and Nancy Hibbard Beasley
(her aunt), 63, in that same place. In 1880, they were living, apparently in their own household, in
Cowee, and Nancy's marital status was 'divorced'. In 1910, Nancy, age 73, resided with son William,
49; daughter-in-law Sarah Leatherman Ammons, 24; and their son Lonnie Porter Ammons, age 3.
