Surnames: Parris
Looking for information on Nathan and Nathaniel Parris brothers living in Gilmer/Fannin County after 1860. Nathan married first Elizabeth Trammell who died in 1866, he then married Milly Williams Botts, widow of James Jason Botts killed in 1863 fighting for CSA. I am particularly interested in locating any information on Nathan's oldest son Noah. His estate was probated by Nathan in 1867 in Fannin. Noah's wife was Elizabeth, last name unknown. She died around 1864. They had one daughter Sarah Ann who grew up in the Thad Ellis household. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Noah is listed on the muster roll of Co "E", 65th Regiment GA Volunteer Infantry CSA from (Gilmer) Fannin Co GA. In the same company was Theophilus Sutton, the husband of Noah's sister Sarah.

Do you happen to know who Noah's wife would have been? Any clue could help. My ggrandmother Mary/Sarah Ann Parris is/was their only child as far as I can tell. She was born in 1859 and appeared with her father Noah Parris and her mother Elizabeth? in the 1860 census of Fannin County. She married Carter Champion in Gilmer County in 1880/81. I have never been able to locate her in the 1870 or 1880 census. I believe Elizabeth died between 1864 and 1867. Nathan Parris probated Noah's estate in 1867 and there is no mention of her in the court records in Fannin County. Will look forward to your reply

Sarah Paris Sutton, of Gilmer Co, and her husband Theophilus (Off) Sutton were on the 1870 Polk CO TN census, p.66, listed as T. Setten HH #45. In 1880, the family was enumerated in Morgan Co AL (ed-263 sht-2). In 1900 Off Sutton and wife were in Tarrant Co TX (ed-110 sht-15). He and Sarah were in Blossom, Lamar Co TX for the 1910 and 1920 censuses. They did not live in OK; Sarah must have traveled to make her Sept. 1908 application in Tahlequah, OK. She and Off both died in Lamar Co TX.

Do you happen to have any information as to Noah's wife? His was killed in 1863 in TN with a James Jason Botts. James's widow Milly Williams Botts Parris married Noah's father Nathan Parris the Sheriff of Fannin County. Sarah and Off or T. Sutton later moved to Oklahoma. She filed a pension claim for being Cherokee, but it was denied. Do you happen to know anything more about the Parris family of Fannin/Gilmer County? Do you have information on Sarah Jane and T. Sutton's family line? Will look forward to your reply.

Sandie,
Thanks for the reply. Since many families inter-married some times in those days I would very interested in more information on Sallie if you have any. Siblings and spouses?
Connected or related families? I have her parents as James Crum Abercrombie and Mary Emaline Reynolds. I believe I verified this with census but really would like to know more about them as well. Can you verify? Can I help with any questions?
These Parris' are connected to the Trammell family of Gilmer/Fannin. Turner family of Gilmer and SC. Williams, Botts, and Ellis as well. Still trying to sort them all out. Are you from the Gilmer/Fannin area? Aaron

I am interested in the Cherokee connection. Lewis Parris b. abt. 1802 SC married Phoebe Calley b.abt 1805 SC. They moved to Ga then during the Native American round-up for the Trail of Tears, the family moved to Alabama. After it was safe to return, some members of the family returned to GA. Ida Lee Wisener d/o Francis Keemer Cole & Snowden 'Noten" Andrew Wisener, told me a story about Indian Blood in her, she thought it was Cherokee, but really did not know. She said several of her ancestors married Indian woman. I mean no disrespect to the Native Americans, this is just how she put it. Ida d/o Snowden "Noten" Andrew Wisener s/o Jacob
"Jake" Daniel Wisener who Married Mary Elizabeth "Polly" Parris d/o Lewis Parris s/o Nathaniel Parris b 1760 NC. This is why I am very interested in the information you have on George Parris and his Cherokee Connection. I will gladly share information.
Thank you
