First Name:

John Maples in Limestone County, Alabama

About Our Family Research

Eight generation of our family have lived in the area where John Maples (1786-1851) "intruded" in 1807. He came to this part of the "Mississippi Territory" on flatboats with a group from East Tenn. He married Mary Kyle Prigmore, widow of John Prigmore who was killed by Indians soon after their arrival. John and Mary Maples remained here after the area became a state. They had five sons; William, Absolam Kyle, Malcolm Gilchrist, Josiah and John W. (Jack) Maples.

All of my Maples grandfathers, including John, are buried in this area. I am positive on my information back to John. I am looking for verification of his parents, Josiah Maples and Mary Overton. I think they were in Moore County, North Carolina at one time. There are so many Josiah and William Maples I am afraid to assume any relationship.
