Re: [jacksongenealogy] Look-up request for an Obituary for Charles W. Adkins
I hate to but in, but do you do lookups? I desperately want to find my great grandmother Malinda Johnston. She married William Washington Kirksey and they divorced. He was my great grandfather. She was pretty young so might have remarried, but I do not know for sure. My Granny had a note that she died March 1913 in Wannville. I have not been able to find anything other than that so far. I would SURE appreciate anything anyone could do for me on this, since I don't live in the area. Thanks in advance.

- Dear Judi,
My GGGG-Uncle, John W. Parks, is listed in The History of Jackson County,
Alabama by John Robert Kennamer, Sr. as one of the mayors of Scottsboro.
This was the first I had ever heard of him being mayor of Scottsboro. I know
that he had a law practice at Bellefonte with his brother Hugh Lawson Parks.
Is there any way to look up some documents that prove that he was one of
I was also able to copy a good deal of the information that my
Great-Uncle J.C. Clemons has. In some of his papers he mentions the terrible
circumstances surrounding John W. Parks's death. He states, "John W. Parks
son of William Delaney Parks of Woodville, while drunk, abused his wife. Her
brother interfered, struck Parks on the head and killed him." I also wonder
if there would be any documentation of this incident in a local newspaper. I
am very curious about this, too.
