AUGUSTUS ESTES, JR.
Augustus "Gus" Estes, Jr. is my maternal great grandfather. He was born in Langsdale, Clarke County, Mississippi about 1870 to Augustus Estes, Sr. and Annie Eliza Winn. He was the third of eleven children. His siblings are: Arthur, Lela, Ada, Mary, Addie, Evaline, Georgia, Annie, Carrie and Ida.
I never met my great grandfather and I do not have a date of death for him. He married Lula Jones and together they had three children: Willie, my grandmother, Robert, Eugenia and Edward. My mother, Augusta, was named after him.
