Does anyone know the parents or siblings of Sarah Elizabeth Leslie? She is a maternal g Grandmother of my wife Mary Ellen Hariel. Also Silas J. Leslie.

I have the following information on her.

Born in GA 1822
Married about 1845 in Hancock County MS to Solomon Seal
Died 1906 in Pearl River County MS 1906


In 1850 Hancock County MS Census was living next door to Brother-in-law Amos Seal who had as member of household a Silas J. Leslie b.GA 1830. (More on him later)

Solomon Seal and Sarah Elizabeth Leslie had:
1. William Riely Seal b 1846 Hancock Co.,MS m. Nov 1879 in Hancock Co.,MS Harriet Virginia Favre d. before 1897
2. George Washington Seal (sometimes listed George Israel Seal though I find nothing to support that name) b Oct 1848 Hancock Co.,MS, m. about 1878 Mary E. Leslie in Hancock Co.,MS, d. before 1910 (George is Grandfather of my wife.)
3. Rebecca Elizabeth Seal b. 31 May 1850 in Hancock Co.,MS m. Jan 30, 1867 John J. Jarrell in Hancock Co.,MS, d. Jan 26, 1923.

10. Camilla Seal b. Apr 1867 Hancock Co.,MS, living Hancock Co.,MS 1880.

Also would like same information on Silas J. Leslie born in GA in 1830.

In 1850, Silas Leslie was living next door Sarah Elizabeth Leslie and Solomon Seal. He may be a brother of cousin.
About 1852 Silas J. Leslie m. Mary A. (Unknown) in Hancock County MS.

They had 3 children:
1. James R. Leslie b. Jun 10, 1853 in MS. m. About 1876 Eliza Jane (Unknown) d. Apr 8, 1935 in Washington Parish LA..
2. William J. Leslie b. 1855 in MS lived in 1860 & 1870 in St Tammany Parish, LA. was probably living in Hancock Co.,MS 1880. A James b. 1855 was living with Silas Leslie in Hancock Co.,MS in 1880. This James did not appear to be James R. so William J. may have been William James Leslie.
3. Mary E. Leslie b. Feb 1959 in LA m. George Washington Seal About 1878 d. after 1910. She was living in Pearl River Co.,MS in 1910.

In 1860 Silas J. Leslie was listed in the St Tammany Parish LA Census as S. J. Lester family
in 1870 The Silas J. Leslie family was correctly listed in the St Tammany Parish census. The voter registration had Silas registered as living at Leslie's Ferry, Bogue Chitto, where he was listed as Police Officer for Bogue Chitto.

Silas sold his ferry/merchant operation before 1880 and returned to Hancock Co.,MS where he was elected to the State House, representing Hancock County in 1880. He served 1 term.

George Washington Seal and Mary E. Leslie had 10 children. 2 have not been identified and probably died as infants. Known are:

1. Rosa Seal b. 1879 in Hancock Co.,MS living in Pearl River Co.,MS in 1920
2. Luther Seal b. Jul 1881 m. Martha Bounds in 1811 and was living in Ouachita Parish LA in 1930

I do not know where Silas J. Leslie or Mary A. Leslie are buried but it is probably in Gainesville, Hancock Co.,MS.

Hope all of this can help some of you and hope some of you may have some information to add to it.
