     PARSONS, Francis William, d. 5 Jul 1889, Tuscumbia.
According to widow's pension file, Francis William Parsons was superintendent of schools at Tuscumbia at the time of his death. Was there a newspaper published there at that time, and where might it be available on microfilm for interlibrary loan? While not a native of the community, his death probably was noted because of his position. I am not enrolled in the Colbert Co. list, so please respond to greermac at Thanks!

    I am seeking information about Eben Lee. He married Eunice Levonia Flannagan in Tuscambia, Colbert County, Alabama on June 4, 1930. I have the original marriage license. Eunice was my mother.
    I do not believe that there were any children of the marriage, but am seeking any information available, possibly the date and place of their divorce. He may have been a prize fighter during that time period.
   He also may have married Eunice's sister, Julia Neller Patrick as well.    Thanks so much. LeVonia

    I am looking for information on the Thomas Clark Garrett and Mary Lulla
Wyman family that settled in Sheffield Colbert County Alabama and raised
their family until their deaths . Mary died 1 April 1955 in Sheffield
and Thomas (sometimes called T C) died 16 Sept 1956 in Sheffield . They
are at the Oakwood Cemetery in Sheffield along with 2 sons and 3
daughters. Thomas was the only son of Alexander W Jarrett (Thomas always
carried the name Garrett and not Jarrett as his dad mom and sisters and
grandparents) and Elizabeth Minerva Fleming. Thomas was born in
Tennessee as was Mary. Mary was the second daughter of Bolivar Wyman and
Sina Jane Cordell.
   I am looking for marriage information on Thomas and Mary I know they
wed March 27 1905 I just don't know if they married in Alabama or if
they married in Tennessee. Any records or direction you can point me
will be a big help. I am a great granddaughter in-law to Thomas and Mary

Thanks Sabrina Gessling
