Mary, born August 8, 1821, married William G. Fleming on January 4, 1843. They settled about three miles from Hawkinsville near what is now the Eastman highway, where her youngest son, E. Green Fleming, still lives with his wife, who was Miss Dora Lomon of Cochran. His only son, Robert F., was assistant cashier of the First National Bank of Hawkinsville for some time before enlisting in the army during the World War. Robert was one of Pulaski’s first volunteers to go overseas and served in Company K, 82d Division. He became weakened by the hardships and exposure of long service, from which he never recovered. He died November 3, 1925. A daughter, Ethel, married Walter F. Atkinson, December 9, 1908. Their children are: DeWitt, Mary, and W. F., of Pulaski County, and Henry, of Atlanta. Elia married Cook Watson of Dooly County. With their daughter, Martha, they are now living in Pulaski County. Birdie married Ira Wynne, a World War veteran, of Chester, Ga., who died August 17, 1926.
Other children of W. G. and Mary Bembry Fleming are: Marina, who married John W. Lancaster, and Nancy, who married H. A. Haskins, and the following who were residents of Pulaski County and were never married: Sarah, John, Catherine, Ferdinand, and George. John was a Confederate soldier, and received wounds in the service from which he died soon after returning home from the war.
