Re: [jacksongenealogy] locating homesteads
I have been trying to find information on the Precise family of Jackson Co.
My greatgrandmother was Delila Frances Precise, she was born March26,1866 in
Jackson Co. She married Absalom James Dolberry in Jackson Co. Alabama. I am
trying to locate more information on the Precise family. I know that her
parents were Ambrose Precise and C.M.A.J. Sisk. I have found through census
records that Ambrose Precise had remarried and was married to Phoebe Sanders had
they had te following children Joseph D., JohnW., Sarah A, And in 1880 he had a
niece living with him Sarah J. Precise, age 27.
Ambrose Precise is listed in the 1860 census of Jackson Co. Alabama as being
age 18, he is listed in the household of William Precise age 56 and a farmer,
also listed in the household are Delilah 68, David 15, Robert Precise 15,
William 13, and Joseph age 10.
I have also located the following Precise's in the 1860 census Clumentle
Precise, male, age 25, farmer, also listed in the same household are Lucinda age
17, and Thomas age 21 and a farm laborer.
I am not sure how or if these families are related if you might know I would
be interested to find out.
I am also interested in any information on Sisk family living in Jackson Co.
aroun 1840 and later.
