In Reply to: James Preston Siler/Josie Estell Wright by Sue Curtis of 902

John Quincy Adams Siler enlisting in Chatham County, NC, presumably in 1861. He returned to Chatham County, NC after losing part of his arm at Gettysburg. He married Nancy Jones in 1866 in Chatham County, NC. The first two children were born in NC, while the rest were born in Hardeman County, TN. They must have migrated between 15 Apr 1871 and 26 May 1875.

James Preston Siler, their fourth known child, was born 28 Mar 1879 in Hardeman County, TN.

I have that James Preston Siler was married twice.

To Fannie Naylor in March 1899
Children were William M. Siler, b.Feb 1900 d. Mar 1900; Eva Gertrude Siler, b. 30 May 1901 d. 7 Mar 1969, Prentis Hampton Siler b. 21 Apr 1903 d.
Fannie Naylor died 30 Mar 1904 and is buried in Hardeman County, TN. It makes sense to think James Preston Siler was in TN at this time.

To Josie Estelle Wright 3 Feb 1908.
Josie was born in Puxico, MO. It is assumed that he moved to Puxico because of his second wife Josie.
