HARDIN and PHIPPS: This mystery has stumped me for the past 25 years; and has stumped my mother for the past 52 years. My great grandmother, Lucy HARDIN, born July 4, c1855, Lawrence County, AR, married c1872, William W. PHIPPS from Scott County, AR. They raised their family and lived in Scott County for the next 50 years. Lucy had twin sisters and a brother named James who was a Methodist Minister. (James came to visit Lucy every now and then so he had to live close enough to make the trip). When the children were young, her father drowned in the White River while working on a raft of logs. Does anybody anywhere know who her parents are? Any clues will be gratefully accepted. Thank you.

March 27 1999
Does anyone have any information on the family of the eleven-year old girl L. M. STATON who is on the 1860 Arkansas census for Scott County, Washburn TWP? The enumeration reads:
John BARNARD 49 m w SC
Cada 32 f w SC
L. M. STATON 11 f w TN
Mary P. JOHNSON 55 f w SC
My reason for asking is that my g-g-grandmother's maiden name, according to multiple family sources, was Larcenia Miranda BARNARD, but I have had absolutely no luck tracking her family down. I know she married my g-g-grandfather Martin COUGHRAN, CSA, immediately after the Civil War and they lived in Scott County, Washburn TWP and Logan County from about 1866 to 1885 when they moved to Indian Territory. I also know from later censuses that she was born May 1848 somewhere in Tennessee. Based on this purely circumstantial evidence, I am inclined to think that this L. M. STATON may have been her. The next question is why was she living with John BARNARD and why did she take the BARNARD name? Adoption? Was Cada her mother and a remarried widow? Is Polly JOHNSON Cada's mother? And if L. M. STATON was adopted, who was her blood father? Thanks for any help.

COUGHRAN, BARNARD: Looking for info on Martin J. COUGHRAN/CAUGHRAN/ COCHRAN b. 1837 Scott Co AR, and his wife Larcenia M(iranda?) BARNARD/ BERNARD/BARNETT b. March, 1848 in unk TN county. They were residing in Scott Co, Washburn TWP according to the 1870 census, and then in Logan Co. by 1878 according to BLM Land Records. This change may be the result of county boundary changes and not as the result of actual moves. Martin was a CSA Civil War vet (4th ARK Inf. Reg.) and married ~1866. All that is known of his family is that his father Lewis b. 1811 came from IL and was in old Hot Spring Co. by at least 1834, possibly as early as 1829. Nothing at all is known about Larcenia, except that she preferred to be called Miranda. Their children: Sarah b. 1867, Robert b. 1868, Rebecca b. 1870, John E. b. 1879, William M. b. 1880, Susanna D. 1882, and Minnie M. b. 1883, all born in Scott/Logan Counties. They may have had other children as well: Warren, Henry, Tobe and Mary, but this is just oral tradition and I've found no records to support this (though there is a nine year gap between 1870-9 that I can't account for.) The family relocated to I.T. by at least 1890 (Beck TWP, Canadian District, Cherokee Nation.) Martin was widowed by 1920 and died sometime thereafter; he is buried in Lee's Chapel Cemetery, Muldrow, Sequoyah Co., OK. Thanks for any help.
