Rule LineSHAKING YOUR FAMILY TREE: QUERIES 2002


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 Once the queries have been archived for a year, I do not pull them back into my computer.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.

JACKSON/NEAL
my grandmother, Maude Bell Neal married to Charles Wesley Jackson. They had 3 children : Bertina Jackson, Paulene Jackson, and Alfred Neal Jackson. They lived in Gillam Arkansas, and she died 1948 (we think December) in Gilliam. We know her father left before or shortly after her birth. Her mother took her to live with grandparents. Her mother died when she was very young (probably 2yrs. old or younger), and she was raised by her grandparents. I was told at around 9 yrs.of age she went to work for a family and lived with them. I was also told one of her parents were of Indian descent. We are not sure what tribe, and have no other information. I sure hope this is enough to find some information about her. I would really appreciate anything you can tell me. We lost my dad (Alfred Jackson) a year ago in February, and just burried my aunt Paulene yesterday in Healdon, Oklahoma. She was the las living child, and all of us children would like to find out more about our grandmother.

Dyer and Leannah ?? *she was thought to be 1/2 Cherokee born in KY. They married around 1816 in TN or KY. George's sister, (#9) was Narcissa Almita Dyer b: ca1836 AL or MS and married James Cowley on July 31, 1852 in Itawamba Co. MS. They supposedly moved to Arkansas shortly afterwards and settled in Sevier Co. They had 3 children: Leannah Cowley, George Robert Cowley and James Franklin Cowley, when or where born is unknown. I had located a descendant of child #10, Andrew Dyer, who with his widowed mother (Leannah ?? Dyer) came to live with the Cowley's in the mid to late 1850's. I was told by child #10's descendant that James Cowley served in the Confederate army and was killed and his widow, Narcissa, lived the life of a pauper until her death. Leannah ?? abt. 1860 and was buried in Sevier Co. Andrew moved on into southern ILL and joined up with the Union soldiers at a hot bed of contention called Bunker Hill, ILL at the end of 1964.
