William A ws married to Mary Allen 4-24-1884 Died 1899
Mary Ann Allen born 8-1867 Died 1920
We believe that Wm. Alvis had 2 wives but do not know who the 2nd was. Believe their were at least 5 children:
Fred P. Respess
Margaret "Maggie" Respess
Henry A. Respess born 6-1887 died 10-29-77
Molly Cecelia Respess born 7-1896
Dorothy Cooper lived in Battle Creek MI
Fred P was born 12-21-1892 and died at Sacred Heart Hospital in Pensacola 9-01-10 several days after being hit in the head in a bar-room brawl. Have copy of news story from paper
Have what we believe is a picture of Wm. A portrait date unknown. He would have been my great grandfather. Also have some of family tree for Henry A. if interested.

I am interested in the Respess family of Escambia County, Florida.
Can you tell me if there is any relation to the family you mentioned and Henry Respess born ca 1818 in AL and wife Emaline born ca 1826 NC and their children Victoria born ca 1850 in Al...Richard born ca 1852 in AL and Ariadna born ca 1858 in Georgia. They were listed in the 1870 census of Escambia County, Florida on page 676.
Ariadna "Arie" married Charles Henry Johnson in Escambia County, Florida in 1874 and they had 11 children.
I'd love to make an connection to any one with info on this Respess family.
