    "WILLIAM L. METHVIN was born March 1, 1807. He went to Albany, Daugherty County Ga. and engaged in real estate and livestock business. Subsequently, he moved to Griffin, Spalding Co. Ga, where he built a large hotel on Hill Street and operated same for several years. In 1851 he sold his hotel and went to Twiggs County and engaged in overseeing for Hodey Hughes of Twiggs County. He married an orphan girl that Hodey Hughes raised, so I understood. I do not remember her maiden name, but her given name was Samantha. He raised a family of four children, one son and three daughters, Daugherty, Sallie,Mary and Fannie. He died in 1866 and is buried at Jeffersonville, Twiggs County. After the family grew up, Daughtery went to New York City and engaged in the mechantile business. Aunt Samantha and the three girls moved to Macon. Aunt Samantha and Fannie died there several years ago. Sallie married and now lives in Orlando, Fla. Mary married a man by the name of Hutchens of Macon. She raised a family of several children. Her husband died as I remember in 1929. Mary lives in Macon with her children." (According to the John F. Methvin Family History)
