I am looking for information on my ggrandparents, Matilda HUTCHESON and John BAILEY. Matilda's parents are Sarah TATE and Charles L. HUTCHESON. Matilda and John had 2 children: a daughter named Ola and a son named William. BAILEY family information is very hard because of the name BAILEY being so common. I know that Charles L. HUTCHESON and Sarah F. TATE were married 1849 in Franklin Co., Alabama. Sarah (TATE) HUTCHESON died Nov. 4, 1875 and Charles L. HUTCHESON died March 6, 1890.

Samuel E. EDENS married Margaret C. GUESS 20 Feb. 1878 in Sebastian Co, AR. They are found with son William in Scott Co. in 1880. Nothing further has been found on Margaret, although Samuel had three more sons. Family stats are:
Samuel E. EDENS, b. Feb. 1859 in TN
Margaret C. Guess EDENS, b. about 1862 in MO
William Wiley EDENS, b. July 1879 AR; m Mahaley Jane HANEY

James A. EDENS, b. about 1884 AR
Fred A. EDENS, b 1894 in Keota OK; m Myrtle CRAWFORD
Except for our direct ancestor Samuel Alexander EDENS, we have been unable to find much information on his brothers. Fred A. EDENS joined the military in 1918; he was gassed in France and discharged as 100 per cent disabled in 1920. Nothing else has been found on him. I would like to find his wife Myrtle CRAWFORD EDENS and any children they might have had. Myrtle has not yet been found on the 1920 census.
James A. EDENS may have married a Mary/Maggie and be buried in the Little San Bois Cemetery in Haskell Co. OK. The elder Samuel married a woman about 1905 whose name was L. Caroline (last name unknown.) She had granddaughters named Lora and Jewel BUCK and Audra SHARP. Samuel and Caroline died in 1918.
Margaret C. GUESS EDENS was the daughter of Samuel E. GUESS, who was born about 1825 in KY. Her siblings were Mary Ann, Miles L., William R., and Manda Jane. All the GUESS children were born in MO 1854 through 1865. The family was in Carroll Co. AR in 1870, in Scott Co. in 1880. Any help finding more information on these people will be appreciated.

Civil War Pension Application papers on the brother of my g grandmother Ellen Caroline WOLFE list him as being a past resident of Scott County. His name was Tobias Washington WOLFE b. 1830 in TN.

In Nov. of 1884, Frank BLYTHE and Josh CROOK had been arrested in MO and were taken to Waldron, AR, according to newspaper accounts. Frank somehow got off, but Josh CROOK, according to family lore went to jail. According to the newspaper account, the charge was "assault with intent to kill one MCCUTCHEN, on the 15th of July last by firing promiscuously into his house"...Article dated Nov. 29, 1884, Arkansas Gazette. We have lost Joshua CROOK after that newspaper article. Family lore says he did time and died in prison. Joshua CROOK was my Great Grandmother's brother so I am very interested as to what happened to him. I would very much appreciate any info you could give me either specifically about him or about the legal system and how it worked in Waldron in the 1880s.

I have just submitted a picture of my great-grandfather William Parks STRIPLING and his daughter Hester. As you will see it is torn and the other members are not there.

I am looking for information on R.E. BLYE who is in the Blackfork area of Scott County in the 1890's. I believe him to be Robert Edward BLYE, my gg-grandfather. His daughter Dora Belle BLYE married William Parks STRIPLING of Blackfork in 1894 and I believe that his daughters Catherine BLYE (md J.W. GRISSOM) and Mary BLYE (md F.B. BROOKS) are the ones listed in Marriage book B. Robert married Vicey Angeline BYNUM in 1875 in Pope county, AR. They also had a son Robert Andrew BLYE born around 1874-75. Several other children were born later. I have their names and birthdates available. I also believe he may have been a BLYTHE and changed the spelling of his name to BLYE, and that he may have moved his family to the Blackfork area due to relatives residing there. I would like to be able to connect him with his parents and siblings. He was living in Whitefield, Haskell county, OK on the 1900 census. And my grandfather, Dora's son, grew up in his home in OK. Please contact me if you have any information concerning any of these people.

I am searching for information on any and all of the surnames listed as they are directly connected to my husband's family. Of course GIBSON is where I am trying to focus my attention with this post, just hoping some of the names might connect. Pope Co., Yell Co., and Scott Co., are where some of the families lived at different times. This line of GIBSONs, I am told by my 82 year old Father-in Law, moved to AR from TN and later into OK, in what was then Indian Territory, later Muskogee Co. I am sure migrated through other counties on the way. These are the names of the GIBSON's I have some knowledge of: Father, John B. GIBSON b. Waldron, AR; Mother, Sarah EDDY b.22 Aug 1865, Billings, MO; Sons, Jerry, Carl, George, Clarence, Clem, and James Thomas (my husband's Grandfather) Daughters, Becky, Bertha, and Betty. The other surnames are linked through marriages. My "stonewall" is the Father, Mother, and sibling of John B. GIBSON. Some family members said they thought both their Grandmother and GGrandmother had the same name, which I found hard to believe. However, John B. was married to Sarah EDDY 19 August 1883, her parents were Mitchell EDDY and Eliza JENKINS. I recently found Sarah Catharine EDDY married to W. H. GIBSON in the KY marriage search of Lincoln Co. 18 March 1863, but havent located names of their children or siblings. Any and all help will be most appreciated, as I havent found the right size of a hammer to get through this wall.
February 7 2001
I am looking for information on the 1860 Scott County marriage of Jefferson PENNINGTON, 22, and a woman by the first name of Julia, 22. We think that after Julia's first husband, Russell MOTT Sr., passed away that she might have married a PENNINGTON. The 1880 Scott County census shows a Russell A., a Nancy and a John W. as living in the Julia A. PENNINGTON household. We think that the last names of Russell, Nancy and John should have been listed as MOTT, since these are the names along with correct ages of Julia's son, daughter-in-law and grandson. Also, on the 1860 Scott County census, Julia's sons, Caleb and Andrew (Russell A.) MOTT, are shown as living in the Polly PENNINGTON household. Does anyone out there have any information on the possible connection between the MOTTs and the PENNINGTONs? We are willing to share info and look forward to corresponding with those who might have possible links.
