Martin Price, born in Virginia, was reared in Kentucky and Tennessee, where his parent* emigrated at an early day- When yet a outh he served in the war against ngland in IS 12. then married and made his home in Alabama, coin- ins from there to Texas in 1S41 and settling in LaJiaar county where he died in 1ST6. in the eighty-second year of his age. His ife, Elisabeth Moore, had died n Alabama, whea yet a youc* woman, leax-ijag ihe husband with a daughter and three sons who were reared by relatives until the time they came to Texas with their father. One of these sons was Finckney Middleton Price of whora I have told something heretofore. Pinckney Price for years was a. prominent citizen of Paris. He -was a county commissioner, a justice of the peace, county treasurer, and was respected by everyone as a man of strong- character and up- nt in all his dealings. The second son. Sydney Moore Price, was IS years old when the family came to Texas. In 1S45 he enlisted in the United States army for the war with Mexico and served till its close- He returned to his boyhood home in Alabama in 1S47 and farmed. 1= 1S51 he married Mary Jane James -whose home was in Jackson county. Alabama, and they became the parents of 10 children. When the war between the sections came on Sydney Price enlisted in the Third Alabama cavalry, a parr of the Army of the Tennessee, which, bad its baptism of fire at Chickarnausa. He served, in various commands until the close of the war and returned to his Alabama, farm. In IS70 Mr. Price returned to Texas, where he had been a citizen thirty years or so before- He der the meals, to deal with trades- people by telephone, ro arrange Hotvers.
