  of 506

Reddick is the father of John H Starling 1857 d 1933 buried in Short Cemetery. His mother Caroline Fleming's family all moved to Shelby County about 1872 he evidently came with them. Many of this family are buried in Strong Cemetery.

Here is what I have of his fathers Obituary

Roxie Peterson sent this to me we had been looking for it for a while tracing who said they had it and who said they wanted a copy. No one ever posted it for future researchers to find. So for Roxie and all of those who just keep beating on those bricks in the wall here it is for anyone interested to find.

Troy Messenger, 1 Nov. 1911

EX-CONFEDERATE SOLDIER DIED SUNDAY, OCT. 20TH


R. G. Starling, one of Pike county's oldest citizens, died Sunday at his home four miles southeast of Troy on the Brundidge road, at the age of eighty-one years. He had resided at that place for the past sixty-one years. Mr. Starling was born in 1830.

He was the father of fifteen children, eleven of whom, five sons and six daughters, survive him. His second wife also survives him.

He served in the War Between the States in Company "E" 53rd Alabama, under Captain I. A. Wilson.

He was a splendid old man and his many friends regret his death.

The burial occurred at the Starling Cemetery at 11 o'clock this morning, the funeral service being con-ducted by Elder M. V.

End of what I have.
