Subject: [ALABAMA-L] LILES in Alabama
Date: Sat, 13 Feb 1999 10:07:34 EST


Ihave been searching for information on Madison "Matt" Liles family in south
Alabama. He married Sarah "sallie" Elizabeth High(t)smith, daughter of
Elizabeth Caroline Carroll and ?William Daniel Highsmith? in Montgomery Co,
and they are buried in Oakwood Cemetery there.

Matt is son of William L Liles and Martha Ann Shows (Schaus). Martha married
George Wyatt Clark after Williams death. I have a picture of "Grandma
Clarkie" and her corncob pipe.

William is supposed to be son of Hamp (Wade Hampton?) Liles who went to Texas
with sons Thomas, Sol and George.

Hamp is said to be son of John Lyles of SC found in Covington CO AL. John
died in 1840. Hamp's brother would have been Sherwood/Sherrod and Cassius
from information collected so far.

Any information on any of this family would be greatly appreciated and will
gladly share what I have.

Thanks and Good Hunting
