When Alice Spell Caffey moved into the Caffey family home in 1865, after marrying Mr. Caffey, she brought with her several negro servants to help take care of her ready- made family. However, shortly thereafter, she awakened one morning to find that all of her help had departed during the night. Supposedly, Alice had never combed her own hair, dressed herself, cooked OR done any of the household chores. These tasks had always been done for her by the family's negro servants. This information was supplied by Stewart Caffey.
Alice moved into her son William Spell Caffey's home in 1907. She lived there until her death on October 31, 1934 at 90 years of age. Cody (grandson) remember's her rocking in her rocking chair, doing needle work and singing.
Cause of Death: senility and sudden heart failure

About Earnest Lee Caffey:

Notes from Stewart Caffey say: at the time of Earnst's death, the family was out in the field picking cotton and he was sent from the house to the field with a jug of cool water for those working in the field. He was sick by the time he arrived, and died shortly thereafter. Family lore says that he stopped along the way and ate some berries from a bush and that he probably swallowed a spider with the berries.
