RE: Azriah Parsley
I have been unable to find his parents but I have found his 5 bothers memorials on here. If you want, I will send you the memorial numbers. I believe his parents graves are lost.

On a different subject: I saw you are interested in the Collins families of Texas and Kentucky. May I ask which ones? I am a descendant of Willie Lee Collins who was born in Cherokee County, Texas. His father was William Collins who died in Leon County, Texas.

RE: Azriah Parsley
I will search and find out what I can about Azriah's parents and let you know if I find them.
I will ask my mother if she remembers him sayng anything about his parents or where he originally came from. She is 73 and doesn't have the best memory lol.

RE: Azriah Parsley
Yes, that is her memorial number. I am not sure of their marriage date (I'm searching for that info). And I believe you're right on the widow thing. My mother doesn't remember him ever having any children of his own. She has a few funny stories about him. I take it he was a character. If I find out any more info on him, I will pass it on. And thanks again.

RE: Azriah Parsley
Thank you! I will upload a picture of him tonight or soon. Thanks for offering the transfer, but I think you are doing a wonderful job and this is all new to me.

Azriah Parsley
Hi! I have been searching weeks for Azriah's resting place. He was married to my great grandmother. I think she was his 2nd wife. Not sure when they married, but they were married when she passed away. I would love to add a couple of pictures of him that I have, if you don't mind. Please let me know. Also I have a little info on him if you are interested.

Georgia Annie Howard
Georgia Annie Howard is the sister of Napoleon Bonaparte Howard. She was born 13 Oct 1862 in San Augustine County, Texas. She married about 1877 (at the age of 15) to Josiah Gunter from Louisiana. They had 11 children. Georgia died 28 Aug 1923 and is buried by Josiah at Paul Cemetery, Forest Hill, Rapides, Louisiana. See her gravesite on Find A Grave #28339016. She was only married once. Georgia was my great grandmother. I visit their grave often. Annie Gunter Newman Chevalier

Memorial #97367686
I do not know if you are interested, but found on Fold3 the document that shows that Greenberry Watts (WGB Watts) died on 11 Feb 1865 in the CSA General Hospital in Shreveport. He was a private in Company E of the 19th Reg. Texas Infantry. He joined in San Augustine, Texas for 3 years or the war on March 30, 1862 and is listed as age 18.

Not the same
Never mind, I believe there are two separate John W. Stricklands and this is the wrong one. Sorry!
