I am trying to place the Precise family in a particular place in the early
1800's. I believe they probably all lived near each other considering the
way things were at that time. I am pretty sure that they all lived in the
Pikeville area, mainly a community of several families, called Ivy Bottoms.
My maiden name is Frazier, my married name is Golden, and they all lived in
that area because of the rich farm land there. It still is, my cousin
Charilie Precise, farms over 3000 acres in the area.
Ambrose Lafayette Am Precise was born Apr 6, 1842, buried in the shelton
cememtary, (in the Pikeville/.tupelo area, near Scottsboro, Al, where my
grandmother Mary Alice Precise is buried.
The info I have is similar to yours, they were married July 27, 84, they had
five children, Delila, Joseph, John, Robert, Sarah, james, My info says no
more info at this time.
I have several pages regarding the Precise family.
If you would like a copy send me a self addressed envelope and I'll will
send you a copy.
My address is:
3019 Co. Rd. 47
Section, AL 35771
So it seems like we some kin.
