Rosy B. QUALLS died in Miller Co. on Oct. 19, 1916. Does anyone have any
information on her. Did she have a daughter (or granddaughter)named Anna
CORDER whose father was Moses A. CORDER from Dunklin Co., Missouri. Anna
CORDER married Paul THOMPSON in Dunklin Co. and had a daughter named Mabel.
She divorced THOMPSON and married Ben COOPER and they had a daughter named
Sarah. Anna died about 1917 (where or when ?). Ben COOPER took both girls
and moved to Cabot , Ark.. Ben and his father William H. COOPER were killed
by a train on Dec. 6, 1920 in Cabot, Ark.. The little girls her put in
a orpanage temporary. Frank COOPER adopted Sarah and raised her and Mabel
never saw her again after she left the ophanage. My grandfather was Moses
CORDER and his first child Anna is a missing link in my family history.
My Dad would like to know what happened to his step sister and the missing
years of his father life when he was also ophaned at age 8 until he reappeared
12 years later.Will share any connecting families link and history with
you. Thanks George Corder, HC 67 box 178C, Salem, Ark. 72576

They were in the Little River, Miller and Sevier area around 1818 to 1829.
On to Pope Co. AR in 1830 Census. In 1835 Lewis is in Chicot Co. Thomas
Sr. presumably died and the BOATRIGHT clan headed back to TX. They had
come to Texas with Stephen F. Austin's original Three Hundred Settlers
in late 1821.

What Civil War Units or AR Militia Units were formed in Miller Co or nearby
counties in 1863 - 1864. I am searching for Ruben J/Ruben Jasper/R J/EVERS.
He lived in Miller/Lafayette Co 1860 with his family. He was killed or
died in military service after 1864 and in 1867 his widow and children
returned to her original home in Monroe Co, AL A 1919 letter states that
he died in service of measles. Family stories carried forward repeat that
he served at Gettysburg. I am interested in finding a unit with his name
on the roster.
