Re: Zacariah Godfrey/Martha Mayes Godfrey
In Response To: Zacariah Godfrey/Martha Mayes Godfrey ()
I am the son of Williard Benjamin Mayes and the grandson of Peter Adolphus Mayes. I was born in Houston, Texas in 1966. My aunt Jack (Mabel Doyle) had the large white board of the Family Tree (the descendants of Isiah Day and Amanda Cribb) when I was a child. There are other family members who are researching the Mayes family as well. One I know of is Robert Mayes of Friendswood, Texas. I met him last year while my wife and I were visiting Houston.
Iworked as a newspaper reporter in Beaumont,Texas for four years at the Beaumont Enterprise. Chambers County and Anahuac/Double Bayou are between Beaumont and Houston. Currently, I am a Soldier in the U.S. Army, assigned to the 3rd United States Infantry Regiment (The Old Guard) the Army's ceremonial unit and escort to the President of the United States. I am a staff sergant in the Public Affairs Office. I have one sister, Vanessa, who is retiring from the Army, who resides in Fredericksburg, Va., and my mother, Gwendolyn Mayes, of Houston. We also have our cousin Joe Mayes, and his children, Kim (a photographer) and Tammy. I hope this bit of information helps. Call me at (703) 439-0172 if I can be of further assistance.
