They resided for many years in Brilliant, Marion Co.AL. but James moved in 1925 to Ark. he died 1954 in Batesville, Ark. and was buried in Marion Co.AL. Lizzie died first and was buried in Ark. [location ?] But when James's time came, he wanted to be taken back home for burial, in Marion Co. AL.
I still don't have the information of him being in the Civil War, or the dates on Lizzie.
It seems all children were b. in Brilliant,AL.
