My Scott County ancestors were Thomas J. METCALF born 1820 in TN and wife Elizabeth born 1822 in TN. They lived in Texas from 1848, possibly before, until 1869 when they moved to Scott County, Arkansas. They had 12 children, all born in Texas: Francis Marion, William H. (Ham), Andrew Jackson, Mary, George Washington, Martha, Nancy, Thomas J., Joseph Anderson (Joe), James Monroe, Samuel Houston (Sam), and Henry Howard. One of their children, George Washington, was born in Harrison County, TX and this is where they were living when they migrated from Texas to Scott Co, Arkansas. I have not found them listed on the Texas census or any Other records in Texas. Thomas and Elizabeth METCALF homesteaded land in the Packsaddle Community of Scott County and are listed on the 1870 census, Tumbleston Township, #129/130.

Looking for information on David Crockett RAMSEY, 1808-1899. Married second Elizabeth ENGLISH (first wife unknown). They were in Scott County, AR in 1860 census and Sebastian County in 1870. David and Elizabeth's dau Millie, b Dec 6, 1860, married my ggf Samuel Howard KENNINGTON, b Feb 14, 1859, probably in Bowie County, TX. Sam may have been son of William E. KENNINGTON and Susan A. POER who were in Bowie County 1840's-1860's although William disappeared before 1860; Susan died 1869. Some oral family history suggests Sam may instead have been son of one of William E. and Susan's daughters and a man named TIDWELL but was raised by his "Uncle Bill" KENNINGTON. I am guessing Uncle Bill was William E. and Susan's son William R. KENNINGTON, in Yell County, AR in 1870 census (age 34 or 39, b SC) with wife Mary E.J., 21, b TX, and dau Willie F., 1, b AR. If he was and did indeed raise Sam, the proximity might explain how and where Sam met and married Millie abt 1878. They and at least two other RAMSEY siblings went to Clay County, TX 1878-1879 and later were in neighboring Montague County. Would love to find a marriage record for Sam and Millie in Yell, Scott, or Sebastian Counties. Please help if you can.
