My great-grandfather James Choate married Sealah Choate in Tennessee. My grandfather was William Austin Choate born in Kentucky in 1865 although Sealah and James,who were Choate cousins before their marriage and after too,both had last name of Choate,were from Tennessee. Sealah was from Fentress County,Jamestown,Tennessee and James from Putnam County,Tennessee. I have information. My grandfather William Austin Choate married Lillian Lyles in Tennessee. He was usually just called Austin.
My grandfather and grandmother moved to Grayson County,Texas,and were later joined by Sealah after James died. An unmarried son Lonnie came with her. Later John Choate and his wife Ada Apple joined them there in Grayson County,Texas.Sealah,Lonnie,John and his wife Ada,and my grandparents William Austin and Lillian Choate are all buried in Sherman,Grayson County,Texas.
