Hi I was at your website at ucan.us and noticed that you show Hiram Taylor and Mindie Ogletree,they were my great grand parents.I believe that John Ogletree was Mindie's father,her brother David was named after John's father David Ogletree.Mindie's real name was Arminda Ellender Ogletree,her mother's name was Lively Ellender Pittman,after John Ogletree died Lively married James Lasseter.Arminda's sister Mary was married to Wesley Lasseter the brother of James Lasseter.Wesley and Mary's daughter Mollie was married to Needham Taylor and their daughter Verdie was married to General Jackson Taylor.Do you happen to know the middle name of Hiram T Taylor ?.....Wayne Taylor
Parry was shot and killed in 1933.
My daddy, Hiram Doye Taylor Sr. who was born in 1921 remembered his uncle Parry well. He has told me stories about how good he was with dogs, (Daddy talked like Parry had many dogs and they would follow him around.).
The story about Parry's death was that he owned a large farm near Cecil Georgia, ( I don't know if it this was a part of his father Hiram T. Taylor's farm or not), and he had a family living on the farm; the man worked for him. The story goes that Parry would send the man off to work and then he would visit the man's wife. One day the man caught on and stayed home. When Parry came onto the front porch the man shot him in the face with a shot gun. In those days many houses of the poorer folks had a small hole in the door so a chain could be pulled though to pad lock the door when they left the house. It is though this hole that the husband shot Parry. One of my aunts (Robbie Nelle (Miley)) went and helped my grand mother, Mary Jane Hancock Taylor clean up the body.
I don't know where Parry is burried.
(Oct. 2002, Found out!!! He is in the Taylor plot at Fellowship. He has a slab but not marker. I think he is to right of Hiram T. Taylor, his father.) *He is beside Minda Taylor, his mother, not Hiram.

Toy Surrency told me that the farm Parry had was his father Hiram's. Toy told me a few weeks before his death that he remembered going to Perry's funeral.
***[ John Married three times. Lovdy out lived him so he must have divorced her. He has a marker beside her at Burshycreek cemetary but with no death date. He was most likly not married to the Znie person.] *****
His death date may be 26 June 1901.
***Update***nov. 2002 ***
John's grandson, Jr. Adams says John was married only once and is burried beside Lovedy at Brushy Creek.
The 1880 census lists John and Lovedy with William a son and John Lindsey a nephew in the household. John Lindsey is listed as 10 years old and a farm hand. William is one month old.
