In Reply to: JAMES R CRAIGHEAD by Alexander Craghead of 829

I just recently came across some info that stated that my great great grandmother was married to a J.R. Craighead. Her name was Mattie Parsons who was born May 1, 1865 in Bell co.,Tx, but grew up in McLennan Co.,Tx. area. Matties first marriage (Dec. 22, 1880) was to William J. Whaley, who drown before 1900. ( they had 4 children ) Her 2nd marriage ( April 29, 1900 ) was to William Monroe Elliott. ( they had 6 or 7 children) Her 3rd marriage ( November 06, 1911 ) was to J.R. Craighead, who died August 13, 1933 either in Eastland,Collin or McLennan co.,Tx. All this info was found on Confederate pension records when Mattie Elliott Craighead filed after Craighead's death. She refiled for William Elliotts pension under her name Mattie Craighead. Could this possibly be your James R. Craighead? if yes would love to have whatever info you might have. Will gladly share what I have. Thanks Nicki Osborne Azle, Texas
