Rule LineSHAKING YOUR FAMILY TREE: QUERIES 1-20


I invite you to enter a query for your Sevier County ancestors but because of our limited space, please limit it to only Sevier County ancestors. If you are not sure what part of Arkansas your relative was born, died, or resided in, might I suggest checking the Arkansas Federal Census Index, ususally located at you local library or Historical Society or Genealogical Society, for the time frames before and after the one you think they would be in. Enter your query information exactly as you want it to appear including the name of the county in case of misdirection with one exception, please enter the surnames in capital letters. Also it would be helpful if in your subject box you type "Sevier Co., Ar." so that it is not overlooked or deleted by mistake. Every effort will be made to post your query as soon as possible. Once the queries have been archived for a year, I do not pull them back into my computer. So if you change your email address please send me a new query.

These same cousins say they had 3 or 4 children named James Wilson 1840?? Joseph Wilson 1842?/ Scott Wenfield Wilson 1844?/ Martha Wilson 1846?

My Grandmother was Willie Mae Wilson who was the daughter of James Wilson who was supposedly the son of Robertus and Keziah. Willie Mae was born in Texarkana Tx.1882 though I have no official record of that so I am wondering if she was actually born in Arkansas. possibly you will have some info on her as well. I know there are Wilson cousins from Dequeen so maybe they are all part of the same family.

am trying to look for the parents and children of Emily E. Wingfield that married David Bunch on Dec. 29, 1878 in Sevier County Arkansas. and Mary J. Wingfield that married Asa Bunch on April 8, 1883. I am thinking that the two Winglfields are sisters since the two Bunch's are half brothers. I have some of Emily's children, but I don't know the names of Asa and Mary's children. They later moved to McCurtain County OK. Does anyone know anything about them?

NEEDHAM/BROWN/LAIRD/BILBREE
I am the great granddaughter of Dixie Needham-Smith and Oscar Lee Smith of the Bellville Community. According to the information I have acquired (R.A Needham and Jimmie Needham's Obituaries) my gggrandparents were born in Brownstown. They were life-long residents of Sevier Co. I am inquireing about their parents and possible marriage dates. I have a copy of my great grandma's bible. In it, she had a John Needham and Margret Bilbree as the parents of Robert A. Needham. Margret also had a brother named John. Robert A. had brothers Willie, Monroe, Charlie, Jonnie, Tommie, and sisters Emma Pugh, Betty, Lena Mitchell, and Lillie Pendergrass. Jimmie Laird-Needham's parents were Frank Laird and Martha Ellen Brown. I have that Frank had a sister, Palka (Sp?) Johnson. Ellen Brown had brothers Bob, George, and Henry and sisters Liza Pauley and Delia Cravin. Jimmie had brothers Robert, Hugh, and Herman, and sisters Lucy Rankin, Emma Cox, and Eunice Gore. I just have some notes here and there. I am trying to make sense of it all. The Browns are supposedly buried in Brownstown. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
