John Sylvester, b. 1818 in GA or AL
John A.or H. Sylvester died on 2/11/1904 in Perry County, MS. He is buried in the Sylvester Family Cemetery in Perry County, MS. Census records indicate he was born in Georgiaor Alabama On his tombstone is the following: "Dearest father, thou hath not left us, Thy loss we deeply feel. But, tis God that has bereft us, He can all our sorrows heal." He was married to Sarah Bradley and they had 8 children:Mary Ann, Margaret, Harriet Caroline, Albert G., Sarah Rebecca. Johh Quincey, Elizabeth Jane, and Catherine. John has been a mystery to me for a long time, and I would be so greatful for any clue as to his heritage. Thank you .
