According to Andy Bush (7/10/2000) Maggie died and Carlos married Minnie Higgins. Only two of Carlos and Maggie children were alive when Carlos married Minnie. The marriage of Carlos and Minnie yielded either 9 children (Argersinger History of Lamar County, Alabama page 333) or ten children ( A. Bush 7/10/2000).
Another researcher Bernice Evans Thomas ( The Evans Family - The Heritage of Lamar County, Alabama page 284) indicates that Carlos may have married a third time. She recorded that Carlos married Emmie Evans. Emmie, born in bout 1902, was a daughter of Tom Evans and Adelia Beatrice Enlow Graham.
In 1930, Carlos,Minnie, Herman, Maudine, Carlos Junior, Greely, and Jesse Loventress were living on the Smithville-Hatley Road. The family was enumerated as Household 412 and family 426. According to this record they were living on a rented farm.

About My Database
The database contains records on about 6800 individuals in the Broyles/Briles family. It was created primarily from information in John Kenneth "Ken" Broyles's Broyles Family Ties and Broyles Family Newsletter, which in turn are based on A.L. Keith's "Broyles Family" typescript and Ken's own correspondence. I augmented this by A.L. Keith's articles in the William and Mary Quarterly, Max Briles's work, my own fairly substantial census and county record research, and my own correspondence. I also verified Cerny and Zimmerman's work in the German records and corrected and extended their information, the results of which are included here. This set of data is about 25 years in the making and there are many times I think it's about 3% done!

Estate of Mary Howard
Transcribed by Paula McMeans Scales from copies of original documents received from:
SC Dept. of Archives and History-Columbia, SC
Union County Probate
Box 25 Pkg.9
Roll # C2571
1) Will of Mary Howard dated January 9, 1839
2) Will Recorded and Proven January 31, 1839
3) Order for Sale February 7, 1839
4) Warrant of Appraisement and Appraisal Bill February 23, 1839
5) Inventory and Sale Bill June 29, 1840
6) Claims against the Estate September 11, 1840
7) Calculation and Settlement September 11, 1840
NOTE: Jason or Aaron Howard (or both?) The copies I received included a typed transcription of the Will that clearly names Aaron Howard and Aaron Clemmons Howard as heirs. The hand written copy could be either Aaron or Jason. There is a later mention of the estate of A. Howard, however in the final settlement the name is clearly written as Jason Howard. I am hoping someone is familiar with the family and will be able to clear up the confusion. Paula

On Sunday April 6, 1862 at 5:30 am the Battle of Shiloh began when a Federal recon patrol, sent out by U.S.A. Col Everett Peabody encountered Confederate skirmishers of the advance of C.S.A. Gen. Hardee's brigade. By 9:00am the Federals abandoned their camps to the charging Confederates and formed a line in a sunken road and thicket that became known as "The Hornet's Nest" there they held the Confederates at a standstill for almost 12 hours till the were forced to surrender. By that time Federal Gen. U.S. Grant had established a new line of Defence on Pittsburg Landing, and awaited Gen. Buell's Army of the Ohio to cross the Tennessee River.
Early on the Monday morning of Apr. 7, 1862 Buell's Army did cross the river and take up position on the Federal left flank. Now with superior numbers the Federal counter attack forced the Confederates to give up ground they had won at such a great cost the day before. at 2:30 pm that afternoon the Confederates retreated to Corinth, Mississippi leaving the Federals in command of the battlefield.
On Tuesday April 8, 1862, the Federal army set about burying the dead. The Federal soldiers who died were buried in common battlefield graves till they were re-interred in the Shiloh National Cemetery in 1866. The Confederates who died were buried in 5 mass burial trenches in Shiloh Park, the largest of the trenches contain over 700 CSA soldiers.

|9||According to the Stuckey family history, this marriage was not approved of by the brides family, and thus contact with the Stuckey family was cut off after the marriage. Ironically, after losing wedding gift of 40 acres from her father, they moved to Detroit, Alabama. Later , according to the 1910 Census, they lived in Ackerman, Choctaw County, Mississippi. Apparently they lived out the last years of their life in Gattman, Mississippi. Francis died August 20, 1926 and was buried in Gattmann. John Robert's date of death and burial place is not known. Through my research I have encounter several discrepancies on the dates of birth and names of the children of this couple. There is also some problems with census records and records of other researchers in the matter of the ages of John Robert and Francis. It should be noted for future reference, that Elenore Cochran believes that two of the daughters married, one to a Pope and one to a Blaylock.||PICKLE, John R. (I1621)

Martha Thirlkill , believed to be a sister, was also living in this household. Myrtice Ray remembered Cass as an old woman that smoked dried fig leaves.|
