The Narsicca Andrews in Troup Co married a Joseph Culpepper and died in Al in 1926. Our Narcissa Adella's second husband's father was Kerin (Karon,Caron or Charon) Devereaux. He was born abt 1814 and died Sep 1861 in Liberty County, GA. I have not been able to positively identify our Narcissa's parents. 1. Robert Q Andrews and Martha Amanda Cater is number 1 suspect. 2. John F Andrews and Elizabeth Ann Mikell is number 2 suspect and 3. John L Andrews and Harriet Unknown is number 3 suspect. I have dug a lot and not found anything positive on any of these. She could be an orphan or a needy niece picked up by a relative in Liberty County. Anyway, I cannot find her prior to getting married in 1868 to George Shaw. Oh yes, my info shows that George W Shaw, her first hisband, died betwen 18 Oct 187319 May 1874. Here is some of George's CSA story.

Private CSA . Enlisted in Company F, Georgia 25th Infantry Regiment on 14 Aug 1861. G. W. Shaw also served in Company I, 25th Georgia Regiment. Captured Nashville TN on 16Dec1864 on the last day of the critical Battle of Nashville. He served under Capt. Joseph E. Fulton in the 25th Ga. Reg while being apart of Jackson's Brigade under Brig. Gen. Henry R. Jackson in the Battle of Nashville. "In the last named (battle) his brigade repulsed and held at bay with great slaughter the enemy in its immediate front, while the Confederate line was being broken on each side of it, and fought until it was surrounded and captured". {Evans - Confederate Military History pg. 426-28.} Listed at Camp Douglas on 21Dec1864 as a captured infantryman, with the rank of private, 25th Regiment of Georgia. Released from Camp Douglas, IL 20Jun1865. Camp Douglas was the Union's equal to Andersonville with over 6000 POWs dying of starvation, dehydration, freezing, torture or diease. The conditions were so terrible that the camp's commanders forged the camp records in an attempt to cover up the actions. In all, Liberty County Shaws sent 7 sons to the Civil war. Two died, two were captured, one of the remaining three went AWOL.

Good hunting.
