Children of WILLIAM CLANAHAN / ROSILLA VERNON - 1845 AL.
Here is the info I have regarding the children of William H. Clanahan and Rosilla Ann Vernon. They were all born in Chambers County, Alabama.
(1) Anna Clanahan - Born Jan. 6, 1846 - Died abt. 1872;
(2) Emily Clanahan - Born abt. 1847;
(3) Josephine A. (Josie) Clanahan - Born Apr. 12, 1849;
(4) Rosa Willie Clanahan - Born Jan. 22, 1851 - Died June 20, 1937 in Palestine, Anderson County, TX;
(5) Elizabeth A. Clanahan - Born abt. 1853;
(6) William H. E. Clanahan - Born July 22, 1855 - Died Feb. 12, 1858 in Chambers County, Alabama.
Walter Boswell of Montgomery, Alabama provided much of the above information.
Rosa Willie Clanahan (#4 above) is my husband's great-grandmother. She married her first cousin, Silas Moses Wyatt, in 1869. Their mothers (Rosilla Ann Vernon Clanahan and Mary Lavinia Vernon Wyatt) were sisters.
Silas Moses and Rosa Willie moved from Tallapoosa County, Alabama to Texas in the mid-1880s, riding the railroads all the way. They were living in Alvin, on the Texas Gulf Coast, at the time of the 1900 Galveston Hurricane. They soon moved to Palestine, Anderson County, where they remained.
After Silas Moses Wyatt died in 1908, Rosa Willie lived with her sons, including Charles Henry Wyatt (my husband's grandfather), in Palestine. I have pictures of her that I would be happy to share.
