Mayo Family of Marshall County, Alabama
Dee Witt Clinton Mayo also known as Lincoln Mayo married his second wife Etta Snead November 1900 in Marshall County, Alabama. Ma and Pa Mayo, as
they were known, lived in and around Little Spain. Pa Mayo b. 5/10/1864 in Georgia and died 9/11/1953 in Alabama and Ma Mayo b. 1874 died 3/7/1967.  D W C
Mayo's death certificate states dob 5/10/1864, but other census records indicate that he was born in 1870.  A wonderful lady, Mildred Perry Miller, who has done
extensive research on the Mayo Family has found Lincoln Mayo and wife Etta in the 1920 census with all of their children listed below.  My husband's father,
Dee Witt Mayo, was 9 months old in the 1920 census and he was born  on 8/21/1919.  Records indicate Lincoln Mayo's father was Benjamin Mayo b. 6/6/1806 in
Chester County, South Carolina and his mother Janett Williamson born c 1835 in Georgia.  Benjamin's first wife is thought to be a Cheatwood.  DWC "Link"
Mayo was married first to Catherine Howard on September 15, 1895 in Etowah County, Alabama.  
Dee Witt Clinton Mayo aka Lincoln Mayo  was known as "Uncle Link."   Uncle
Link carried a portable syrup maker around from farm to farm making the
farmer's syrup.
