Following the death of Martha, he married a second time to an unknown wife. By 1880 he had moved to Yell County Arkansas where I lost track of him. He may have returned to Perry County. According to descendants he died between 1892 and 1903. His known children were: (1)Martha "Mattie" Elizabeth, born in Dallas County Texas December 26, 1875 and died in Shawnee, Oklahoma June 3, 1937. She was married three times. Her first husband was William ROBINSON. They were married in Perry County October 11, 1891. Her second husband was John William BUFORD who she married after 1900. He died abt. 1912. Martha then married Jasper "Jap" Marion MCCABE.

There may have been two other set of twins but names are unknown. Martha "Mattie" SPEARS married Will ROBINSON in Perry County Oct. 11, 1891 recorded in Marriage Book "B", page 149. They were living in Rankin Township when the 1900 census was taken - Enumeration District Number 166, page 2. Will ROBINSON reportedly was born in October 1869 in the State of Mississippi. According to the census Martha was the mother of four children but only two were then living. The children of Will ROBINSON and Martha SPEARS were: (1)Mary Ruth ROBINSON born Sept. 1891, married Al W. BUTLER in Perry County June 16, 1909.

County, E.D.#72 page 4-B Fourche-La-Faye township in the household of George A. and Nancy A. JAMES is a 15 year old girl named Lela ROBINSON. She is listed as an adopted daughter of the JAMES family. It is believed that this is the same Lela ROBINSON that was the daughter of Will and Martha ROBINSON and who later that year married John KENNEY. Family stories say that Will ROBINSON ran away with a younger sister of his wife Martha and they were never heard from again. In Will ROBINSON'S household in 1900, the sister-in-law, Josa SPEARS age 13 was living. John William BUFORD and Martha Spears ROBINSON had two known children: (1) Johnnie W.

I would like to correspond with and exchange information with anyone having knowledge of any of those persons listed above. I am particularly interested in locating What became of Will ROBINSON and who his parents were. He and Martha SPEARS were my great grandparents on my mothers side. Lela Mae ROBINSON and John KENNEY were my grandparents. I would also like to locate the grave of my grandmother, Lela Mae KENNEY. It is believed that she is buried in an unmarked grave in the Volmer Cemetery at Bigelow but may be elsewhere. My snail address is James R. Rasco, 2000 Alejo del Sur, Harvey, Louisiana 70058-2901.

on Saturday, March 6, 1999
Looking for family records for George and Martha PERRY who lived in Perry County from 1879 through 1887. Their children who lived there were Charles B. PERRY, Sarah Perry CLARK, Ellen PERRY who married Thomas ANDERSON, Emmaline PERRY who married Walter BENNETT. John Henry PERRY was born there December 31, 1881: birthplace was listed as "Redemption." Midwives were Aorilla HARRIS and Loucinda SANDERS. Also seeking information on William Henry BROWN, Frank BROWN, Eli BROWN, Josie BROWN BAKER, my other grandparents. Their father was either Edmond or Edgar Lewis BROWN. Thomas GATES was married in Perry County. I have copy of his marriage to Mary SANDERS. He was Martha PERRY'S brother. There was a church with a graveyard where George PERRY was buried that may have been washed away in a flood. The name of the church was St. Matthew No. 1. There was also a Pleasant Hill Church there. School was held in the church house. The teachers were
F. J. Milam, Charlotte Rhoden, Robert Riley, and Samuel Jones. Harry Miller was pastor of St. Matthew Church. Also would like to know if there was a Sevier or Levier Township in Perry County. This name appears on a pension application from George PERRY in August 1885. When Martha PERRY lived in Perry County,
C. B. Riser was JP, James Vance was an NP. I have Pension records for Martha, Pension apps from George and family history showing that this family settled in Perry County and lived there before moving to Conway County but can find no other records.

My ggrandmother Loucretia Byrd IVEY WEAVER died in 1936, and her death certificate indicates that she was buried in the Childs Cemetery in Perryville. However, we cannot locate a Childs Cemetery.

- ATKINS, BOSTICK, COATS, GRISHAM, PERTEET, POTEETE, PUTTEETT, RAINEY
on Friday, March 26, 1999
Would like to hear from L. Reeves who posted a query to Franklin Co., TN, in 1997, regarding Larkin POTEETE family. I have an old newspaper article regarding the POTEETE/BOSTICK family reunion held in Toad Suck Park in Conway in September 1985. My husband, Rodger D. ATKINS, is the great grandson of Larkin POTEETE and his second wife, Telitha Coats POTEETE. Larkin is listed as PERTEET on the 1850 Perry Co. census, living with his first wife Anna and children, Sarah A., Margaret M., Mary E., and James R. He was listed on the 1860 census with second wife Telitha Coats POTEETE and they had one daughter, Martha Melvina POTEETE born 6/22/1859. On the 1870 census, Larkin had disappeared during the 1860s and Telitha POTEETE was living with her daughter and son-in-law, a BOSTICK. The article about the reunion gives info on the migration of the Larkin POTEETE (spelled PUTTEETT in 1840-45)and Alfred BOSTICK families by wagon train from Tennessee to Casa, Perry Co. Family history indicates that Larkin POTEETE disappeared between 1860 and 1870, and was believed to have been killed by bushwhackers. One source says there is a record of him being hospitalized in Little Rock during the Civil War. Would like to contact anyone in Perry County who has information on this family. The article indicated that descendants Estelle RAINEY and Letta GRISHAM were still living on some of Larkin POTEETE'S land in 1985.
