GUYTON posted by David on Sunday, May 5, 2002

Do you have a listing for the death of Dalton GUYTON, and/or Thomas GUYTON. They would have been young in age and their deaths were probably between 1919 and 1924.

LEWELLYN, LLEWELLEN, LLEWELLYN, MITTS, THEDFORD, THETFORD posted by Paula Long on Wednesday, May 8, 2002

I am searching for several families that tie into my mother's family. My mother was Ida Mae LLEWELLEN, and she married Howard W. MITTS. My Mother's mother was "Mattie" Elizabeth THEDFORD (or THETFORD), and she married Charley LEWELLYN. The THEDFORD's lived in Blytheville at the time my grandmother and grandfather met, and her father worked for the railroad. That's all I know. I'm not even sure about my grandmother's first name. Mattie is what the 1920 Census said, but my mother told me once that if anyone ever called her by her real name, she would be VERY IRRITATED! She never told my mother what it was - just that Mattie was her nickname or whatever you call it. She was an educated woman - at the time she married my grandfather - approximately around the 1900's, she had graduated from college. I imagine that was a real accomplishment in those days for a woman. I would appreciate any information you have regardless of whether you think it fits or not. Just throw it out there, and maybe I'll find a clue! Thanks a lot! Paula Long 5/8/02

She married my grandfather, Ben Alfred WILLIAMS, probably in New York City, NY in 1944 or early 1945. In September of 1945 she was in Little Rock, Pulaski, AR. My father, Benalfred WILLIAMS, was born there. The only other information I have on my Grandmother is that she died in July 1972 in Joplin, Newton, MO. I would like to find her birth record and parents names if possible. Thank you.
