Rule LineSHAKING YOUR FAMILY TREE: QUERIES 2006


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.

CONNS
The Conn's of Sevier Co., Arkansas:William Conn (Art Hudson's ggggrandfather) and his wife Mary and two children, Lucy Maryann and John were in Sevier Co., Ar. in the 1860 census. They were in Red River Township, PO Richmond. Also in the same township was a son William F. and his wife Retha and three children, the youngest Henry, 1, was born in Ar. William F. was listed Millwood po though. In the same county but in Franklin Township, Millwood PO, was another son:Isaac ( Art's gggrandfather) and his wife Docia Coleman Conn (they were both born in 1818 Ga.) With them were eight children, one of which was Pinkney b. 1851(Art's ggrandfather) and the youngest two which were born in Ar. (Paralee Francis 6 and John Daniel 2). Also in Franklin Township, Millwood PO in the next dwelling ( another son of Williams): Frances A. and his wife Francis and there two daughters (M. I. and Lucy C., 3 & 2) both of which were born in Ar. William's daughter Sarah and her husband Bird Coleman (which was by the way the brother of Isaacs wife Docia Coleman) was in Sevier Co., Ar. in the 1860 census in Red River Township, PO Richmond. Also with them were six children, the youngest two:Andrew 3 and Mary E. 5 months were born in Ar. William Conn bought land in Sevier Co., Ar. in 1860 and 1861. Frances A. Conn bought land in Sevier Co., Ar. in 1860 and 1861 also. Isaac Conn bought land in Sevier Co., AR. in 1875. Isaac and several of the Conns and Colemans were in Texas in 1870. Part of the Conns and Colemans then went to I. T. Isaac went back to Sevier Co., Ar. We think Isaac's parents, William and Mary may have died in Sevier Co. When we find Isaac in the 1890 I. T. census he has his never married sister Lucy Maryann with him and his wife Docia is deceased. We have heard Docia may have passed away in what is LeFlore Co., Ok. We think Isaac may have stayed near his parents in Sevier Co. until they passed away. He then headed to I. T.( where some of his children were) with his sister, when his wife passed away. After Isaac died in 1892, his sister lived with Isaac's son Pinkney. She passed away in 1904 and is buried by Pinkney who passed away in 1905. I do not know how much of this you can use or if you might need other names and dates on some of the other children listed. I hope this is something that can be used on the Sevier Co., Ar. website.

QUERY 010
Danny White

WHITE
I am looking for information on: Will, WHITE who married Charity B. BURT on Nov 3, 1904 in Sevier County Arkansas (1)Will, WHITE is my grandfather. I have no information about his family or how he came to live in Sevier County, AR. According to my father's birth certificate of 14 September 1945 (it is my understanding that the court house in DeQueen burned after 1912) Will, WHITE was born in Aberdeen, MS in 1873. I believe he would appear in census of SEVIER CO in 1910 with wife Charity, BURT; Chrity's daughter from a previous marriage, Vassie, SMITH; son Burt, WHITE and son Riley, WHITE (my father) and around 1914-15 the family moved to Wewoka, OK, due to an association with the Wewoka Capital Democrat, where Will, WHITE is buried. Will, WHITE aka William E. White aka Wm. E. White was a Spanish American War veteran serving in CO. E. 2 MISS. INF. according to his upright military headstone in Wewoka, OK City Cemetery. Will, WHITE d. July 3, 1920, was a printer according to the obituary in the Wewoka Capital Democrat of Thursday July 8, 1920. The fact that Will, WHITE was a printer is seemingly corroborated by source (1) with an information listing under occupation as "Editor?, Auditor?" and by the fact that his family's arrival in Wewoka was because of his association with the Wewoka Capital Democrat. It is also reported in the above referenced obituary that his father was a printer also. It is possible that there were White's in Shawnee, OK that were related as accoding to source (1) William TOLBERT and Nellie, WHITE lived in Shawnee, OK. I know Mr. & Mrs. D.E. BURT lived in Shawnee, OK from the Wewoka Capital Democrat of January 1, 1920 as they visited Mr. & Mrs. W. E. WHITE of Wewoka, OK over the Christmas holiday in 1919. It is also possible that a Ms. Ann, TUCKER of DeQueen, AR is also related as the June 25th, 1920 edition of the Wewoka Capital Democrat mentions that she was in town for a visit with Mr. & Mrs. W. E. WHITE. According to my father we were related to Hugh Lawson White of McComb, MS. Apparently he was an uncle or great uncle? My father said he was a crook. I am wondering if he got it wrong as he was 8 when his father died. My father was related to a family named Bilbo and from an old address book that belonged to my Aunt Vassie there were Bilbo's in Arkansas that were relatives and my father told me about a Bilbo that was a relative of his that was a professional wrestler under the moniker Georgous George in California. So I am wondering if the governor of Mississippi that we were related to wasn't Thomas G. Bilbo who had a very sordid reputation indeed.
