John Alexander McCorkle
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Sep. 1, 1868
Death: Nov. 9, 1951

John Alexander McCorkle was the youngest child of John J. McCorkle (1816-1895) and Elizabeth McLeod (1826-1873). He was born and raised in Marengo County, Alabama. His mother died when he was young and his mother's sister Sarah J. McLeod, who had moved in with the family previously, helped to raise him and his older siblings. John moved to Girard, La., to go into business with his brother Francis Neil McCorkle.
John A. married Virginia Louise Brashear (of Girard, La.), sister of his brother Francis Neil McCorkle's wife Bessie Brashear. John and Virginia eventually moved to Crowley, La., where they remained for the rest of their lives.

John is not linked to his parents because I do not know where they are interred, though I suspect that it is the McKinley Cemetery in Marengo County, Al.(I searched this entire cemetery but did not find them.)Nor do I know the resting places of his maternal grandparents Neill McLeod (1794 N.C.- Jan. 1863 Marengo County, Al) and Elizabeth Butler (1797 N.C. - before April 1846 probably Marengo County, Al.) His paternal grandparents are Francis McCorkle, Jr. #106468544 and Elizabeth Abernethy McCorkle #96633283.

The 6 children of John J. McCorkle and Elizabeth McLeod are: William Butler McCorkle (never married), Elizabeth Brandon McCorkle Coats (Edward), Frances Margaret "Fannie" McCorkle Pope (James C.), Sarah Kathryn "Kate" McCorkle Coats (William), Francis Neil McCorkle, and John Alexander McCorkle.
