Priscilla Louis m. James J. Bowles, AL?

Seeking verification and family information on Priscilla Louis, probably of Marion Co., AL. Death certificate of Martha Priscilla Bowles Sykes, born Nov 1879, dau. of James J. Bowles, lists her mother as Priscilla LOUIS. Family tradition says Martha's mother died in childbirth or soon after, and she was raised by relatives near Glen Allen, AL until her father remarried several years later, when she joined him in Lafayette Co., MS. But the same tradition also says her mother was a Castleberry (some say Nancy Castleberry). The death cert. info was given by her oldest dau. and seems very trustworthy. Can anyone clear this up? Please write to me at
