According to "Wise County History: A Link With The Past" Vol. 2 pp 327-328: Tolbert G. and Scena Parrish were born in SC in 1818 or 1819. They were captured by the Yankees and put in a prison camp at Pensacola, Florida. Tolbert died there. We now believe that Sena was released but may have stayed to nurse her nephew Robert J. Parrish who was with the First Florida Calvary which was Union. Robert died in the Civil War.
followup on the mystery of the burial location for Senah Oates Parrish -

the veterans administration has a new database online now. you can get to it at www.cem.va.gov , then use the "nationwide gravesite locator" link on the left margin.

using it to search for senah parrish, found the following -
...............................................................................................................
PARRISH, S S
DATE OF DEATH: 09/06/1864
DATE OF INTERMENT: 09/06/1864
BURIED AT: SECTION 19 SITE 1378
BARRANCAS NATIONAL CEMETERY
OTHER - RELATIVE OF PARRISH, R J

PARRISH, R J
VETERAN SERVICE DATES: Unknown
DATE OF DEATH: 09/07/1864
DATE OF INTERMENT: 09/07/1864
BURIED AT: SECTION 19 SITE 1377
BARRANCAS NATIONAL CEMETERY
..............................................................................................

this new data verifies what a relative saw several years ago when he visited barrancas, with one exception - where the database listing for s s parrish says "relative of r j parrish", the actual inscription that he saw was more specific, it said "aunt of r j parrish", meaning that s s parrish was a female. We think this is Sena. But have not proven as yet.
