Just found out that my great grandfather James Leroy Giles was born in Brown County, TX. He was married in Boston, TX (now New Boston) in 1884 to Armendia Evitt. They moved to Louisiana where he was affiliated with the Missionary Baptists. In 1895 he became a member of the Church of Christ, was ordained, and preached in Texas and Choctaw Co., OK. Had a farm around Ft. Towson, OK.
Am seeking his parents. Any help would be appreciated!
