COX, WADDLE posted by Elaine Jones on Saturday, January 25, 1997

I'm interested in the following COX line: Aaron COX, born: about 1812 in South Carolina, spouse: unknown The 1850 Benton Co., Alabama census shows the following family:
    Aaron COX (M-38-SC)
    Catherine (F-20-AL)
    Abram (M-14-AL)
    Nancy M. (F-11-AL)
    Charles W. (M-3-AL)
    Arabella (F-2-AL)
Arrabella COX married Moses WADDLE, 29-Mar-1866, in Calhoun Co., Alabama. I'm interested in identifying Aaron's parents and spouse. It's possible all of the above are his children. It's also possible that Catherine is his 2nd wife and mother of the youngest two children. In either case, what was his first (or only) wife's name? Who were his parents?

BIRCHFIELD, HEATON posted by Rosemary Filyaw on Sunday, February 9, 1997

I have done real well with some of my research but not on my g-g-grandfather's line. James Franklin (Frank) BIRCHFIELD was born in Alabama in 1826, married Betsy HEATON in 1845 in Benton Co., Al., died in 1906 in Clay Co., Alabama. They had seven children. Who were the parents of James Franklin BIRCHFIELD? Who were his brothers and sisters? Is there anyone who can help me?

HICKS, KING, SINGLETON, SMITH posted by Jackie Crumley on Monday, February 10, 1997

Mary E. KING (b c1842, daughter of William KING and wife Gilla/Gilly) first marries ? HICKS and has children Mary E. "Nettie" HICKS and James William Asbury HICKS in Randolph County, AL. In 1866, this portion of Randolph County became Cleburne County. Mary marries second J. P. "Jacob" SMITH in Oct 1867 and is found with him, the HICKS children, and children Matilda (age 1) and Mathew M. (age 7 mo.; believed to be a neighbor's child) in the household of her parents in the 1870 Federal Census of Cleburne County. The SMITHs are found in Calhoun County in 1880 with two additional children, Solomon, 4, and William N. 2,NR (does this mean not reported or no relation?) I lose the Smith's after this census. I pick up Thomas Jefferson SMITH who married Sarah Sally J. SINGLETON and live in Anniston, Calhoun County, AL with their children until Jeff's death in 1940. Obit for Jeff states that Solomon "Sol" is living in Sylacauga, AL. Ironically, "William N." and Thomas Jefferson birth years are almost the same. I do not know if William N. and Thomas Jefferson are the same person. If you have additional information on the HICKS or KINGs, parents, etc. please get in touch with me.
