Mr. Joseph D. Mason Elmsford, N. Y.

Dear cousin: -

Your letter has been forwarded me from Alabama. I regret that I cannot give you the direct information about the “Mason family.” There were many intermarriages between the Dancys and the Masons.

My great-grandfather Dancy had three sons by his first marriage, Frank, David and William. He married a widow Mason, who had a son Daniel, and Elizabeth (My father always called her Aunt Betsy). She married her step brother Francis Dancy, Jr.

The Little Johns of Decatur are descended from them. William Dancy married Priscilla Turner, they were my grandparents.

My father had a brother David Mason Dancy who married his cousin Jane Mason.

They had a son David Mason Dancy. Dr. Frank Dancy of Holly Springs married Rebecca Mason, youngest daughter of Col. Daniel Mason.

Your great-grant- mother had three daughters by her Dancy husband, Mrs. James Sykes, Mrs. Dr. Harry Rhodes, and Mrs. William Moody (who remained in North Carolina). This was Col. Francis Dancy, Sr. Your great grandfather Mason was Henry Mason.

My address in Alabama, my data you have of the Dancys. The dates you find in the family bible. Will leave here for New York and Atlantic City next Monday. With kindest regards and best wishes,

Yours cordially,

Mary Lou Dancy

Miss Dancy lives in Decatur, Alabama
