  • The Holden Family genealogy tells us that this person's name is AlphaAzalee Briscoe.

    Commenting on survivors mentioned in Isaac Jefferson Briscoe'sobituary, the compiler comments:
    "3. Mrs. W.J. Seay of Davidson OK - Alpha Azelee Briscoe (daughter ofIsaac and Mary Kincaid)   4. Mrs. H.A. Wooley, Mineral Wells - SarahBriscoe  (daughter of Isaac and Hettie Price) 5. George and HenryBriscoe - George, (son of Isaac and Mary Kincaid), Henry, (son ofIsaac and Hettie)"
    --  Holden,

    The 1880 census lists this child as the lastborn, but the entryappears to be A E, instead of A A.  Alpha Azelee's mother, Mary Jane,died after her birth at some time before the census.  I have not foundthe death record (April 2010).
