W.J. Pickel, Union Parish LA - b.1825/TN (ancestors?)
Washington Jackson Pickel - b.3/10/1825/TN - d.10/20/1898 in Farmerville, Union Parish, LA.He married Nancy Levenia Gulley on 3/28/1855 in Cherry Ridge - lived in Spearsville, ran a store. He was my great-grandfather - and my mother (who kept up with details about everyone!) didn't know anymore about him than that he was born in Tennessee (that info. is also on LA census records).The name is sometimes spelled Pickle (both versions appear in newspaper items - sometimes in the same issue).
I would like to find out about where he came from - his parents - any siblings - anything would be appreciated.
