This is my CHILDRESS dead end. Of all the names in my database, this is perhaps the biggest mystery for me.
Unfortunately, I know more about 9th cousins than I do my own GGG Father here.
What is known:
* Married Minerva Cranford about 1845 in AL.
* Born abt 1820 in Walker Co or Morgan Co, AL
* Served in Capt Teels Co in the Civil War, Tx State Troops
* Died in 1871 and reportedly buried in Kosse, TX
Another clue was a "JAMES" Childress living in the same household in the 1850 Walker CO, AL Census. He was 60.
This most likely is John William's Father.
ANY help or connections, please contact me.
