Last Labor Day I wrote a post about my ancestors' occupations. So as this year's Labor Day holiday rolled around, I again thought about their occupations. From last year's post, it was obvious I come from farming ancestors. (That is one gene that did not get passed down.)
What new occupations did I find for my ancestors' in the past year?
Carpenter - Alexander Humphries
Overseer of the Poor - Jesse Haley (in his later life)
Plantation Overseer - William Haley
Census Taker - Columbus Holyfield
General Store Owner - Stella Holyfield White
Horse Thief - Pelham Humphries
Okay, that's not proven, but it sure makes for fun oral history!
How about your ancestors' occupations?
