I think that you will find that there is some confusion of the Ivie who was the father of James Russell Ivie and the husband of Sarah "Sally" Allred. Some have him as David Anderson Ivie, or John Anderson Ivie, or John David Anderson Ivie. But if you notice, all the records, including the will and his tombstone, just refer to him as Anderson Ivie. There have been some articles written about this quandary. If you go to my public tree "RA Ivie tree" I have a lot of links, documents, etc. Also check out the topic "Will the real husband of Sarah Allred please step forward" on this board. From all this I just refer to him as Anderson.
By the way I am Rufus Alonzo Ivie III, from Anderson Ivie , John Anderson Ivie, Anderson Ivie, Rufus Alonzo Ivie, Rufus Alonzo Ivie Jr.(my father). There is apparently quite a file on him in the Monroe County Courthouse, and I was able to get a copy of the original handwritten will sent to me(attached to Anderson Ivie in my tree).
I will send you a much longer email.
