My family left Alabama in the 1940's. When I was young my uncle told me our Parr ancesters came from SC to Pickens Co., AL. In the 1850 Pickens, AL census Jesse W. Parr is married to Catharine. My uncle (deceased) had told me her maiden name was Roper and Jesse was the son of Claborn Parr of SC. To make a long story short my neighbors were Ropers & he said they could be related etc.... Their son William Leroy "Bill" Parr married Martha Ella "sometimes called Mary" Whatley. Martha's parents were Francis Marion Whatley (born N.C. mother Nancy also born N.C. ) and Hixie ( I was told Clanton). I had watched Gun Fight at the O.K. Corral and had told my uncle the Clantons were bad men and he said they could have been relatives etc..... Martha [Whatley] Parrs sister Mary Jane married Robt. C. "Bob" Walker, sister Ann L. married Alford Lindsey, brother Wm H. married Sallie Carrathan.... Wm. "Bill" Parrs brother James Thomas married Elminia Strickland, brother Jesse married Jemima/Jennie Barham...
According to the census Jesse & Catharines last child Ella / Eller was born in 1862 Pickens Co., AL... Jesse and Catharine both disappear by the 1870 census in Pickens County ( Civil War time) and the older childen are left to raise the younger children
