Request any information on any TERRY's in the area of Pulaski, White, Lonoke, Faulkner, Prairie counties during the 1850's thru 1900. My grandfather, Thomas Doil TERRY, was born in Austin, AR in 1886. His father was also Thomas TERRY and died before Thomas Doil was born. Can find no information on death of Thomas TERRY. Thomas Doil's mother was Eliza HESLIP. This name may be spelled HYSLIP. She married Robert GRIFFIN around 1890 and they continued to live in Lonoke County. Will gladly swap info on Thomas Doil and his descendants.

ALLEN, BAUGH, HODGE, PIPKIN posted by Kevin Baugh on Thursday, February 13, 1997

My great-great-great grandfather, Asher Columbus ALLEN, was born on Oct 26th, 1854, in Pigeon Roost, Prairie County, Arkansas. He was apparently raised by his grandparents, the PIPKINs. In 1871, he married Emma J. HODGE. They later moved to Texas, where one of their grand daughters married a BAUGH, my great grandfather. I am trying to determine who Asher Columbus ALLEN's father was. Since he was raised by his grandparents, the PIPKIN's, I assume his father or both parents died when he was young.

KIRKPATRICK, MORRIS, WEAKS posted by Cynthia Fulcher on Thursday, February 27, 1997

Finis Ewing WEAKS married Isabelle Mary MORRIS 6 Apr 1854 in Sumner Co TN. In 1850 she was 13 & living with Hugh KIRKPATRICK age 76 & his wife Isabelle 73 in Perry Co TN. After she married Finis Ewing WEAKS they moved to AR & are in the 1860 Pulaski Co AR. By 1866, their 3 children, all born AR, are orphaned & taken back to Graves Co KY to live with the WEAKS Family. The Family of James Thomas MORRIS came from Sumner Co TN about the same time & settled in Prairie Co AR. I feel that Isabelle is connected to this family but don't know how. Any response on these families would be appreciated. Thanks Cynthia
