Looking for information on my great great grandparents James A. Follis born 1-20-1831 died 1-10-1877 and Mary Elizabeth born 1-20-1831 and died 5-6-1873. Their daughter Irena Matilda married my great grandfather John Wesley Taylor 9-5-1865.

I have information on a James A. Follis, however he was born in 1825. He had a brother John J Follis that was married to a Mary Elizabeth Sowey. I am showing she was born in 1819. I realize these dates are not the ones you indicated, however if you think this possibly could be a match please let me know. Good Luck

James A. Follis

James (Follace) age 35 is shown on the 1860 TN Census for Madison Co. ( Ma 175-204).
Wife is shown as Mary,29, and a daughter, Aarena, 10. All dates I show in my records match message 2, except birth of James which I show same as message 3. Also in the record are William, 80, Nancy 81, and other family members, whose names I have found during searching the family of William Porter Follis, and his wife Nancy Lucinda.
The names of Porter, Thomas, and Matilda are also shown. These are names of siblings of James. My great-grandfather Miles was also a brother but had gone to TX about 1854.
Other family members names were also found in a family Bible in TN., and the Will of William also lists names of children and some birthdates. I really think this may be a match and since I don't have Aarena's line, would like to exchange more information.

I had hoped you would respond to my previous message. I recently returned from a trip which included visit to Alamo, Crockett Co., TN. A very hurried viewing of land records showed James A. Follis and Mary E. sold 9 acs. of land 1-9-1874. He granted land to Irena and John W. Taylor 12-2-1874, stating "natural Love and affection". A third transaction is recorded J.A. Follis, et ux Almeda A. to Thomas T. Taylor, 24+ acs. 12-16-1874. We were there on Friday at
closing time and were not able to gather more details.

J.W. Taylor was also a witness to the will of Wm. P. Follis in previous message. Hope to hear more as there has been quite a bit of research done on this Follis line, including the one above relating to John J. and Mary Elizabeth.
