Looking for parents of John C. Kirkland born Sep 18, 1914 & died Dec 9, 1982 AL who married Allie Marshall Oct 22, 1949. She was born Apr 10, 1917 & died Dec 13, 1975. They are both buried @ City Cem., Cottonwood, Houston Co., AL.
She was my third grade teacher @ Cottonwood & she gave my first paddling ever in school when I went down the slide head first. I loved her in spite of the paddling! Mrs. Marshalls' brother John T. Marshall married Mary Lou Sellers Mar 9, 1943 in Cottonwood. She too was an elementary teacher @ Cottonwood. This Mrs. Marshall was born Dec 23, 1911 & her husband was a Lt. in the US Army. She was a petite little lady.
Any help will be greatly appreciated. I know her family line now thanks to Andy Marshall on his FTM Pages. My Grandparents were Lela Pearl Kirkland who married William Porter Purvis from C'Wood. I am wondering if she & Mr. John were related. She died when I was only 11 yrsold so I don't remember a lot she told me about her relatives.
