Jim Taylor

Seeking information TAYLOR family: The death certificate of Henry Belton TAYLOR says he was removed to DeQueen, Sevier, Arkansas for burial. Born on 18 Dec 1899, he died of massive third degree burns [from an explosion at Simms Oil in Dallas, Texas] on 1 Jul 1927. His uncle Alonzo Curtis TAYLOR in Sevier County years in 1910, but had moved to Texas by 1920. I suspect some of Belton’s immediate family [he was single] may have moved to Sevier by 1927. Father: William Henry TAYLOR [c1856-?]. Mother: Ferrie THOMASON [c1865-?]. Sister: Mamie [c1893-?], who may have married W. W. MILLER, for Mrs. W. W. MILLER supplied the family info for the above death certificate. Brother: Walter E. TAYLOR [c1897-?] was living in Hunt County, Texas in 1930 and may have still been there in 1954.

Wanda Corn

James Caudle lived in Little River Township, Paraclifta Twp, in Sevier County, AR in 1860 with his wife Elizabeth and their 3 children., Mariah, Mary and J.F (John Francis). James was born in 1818 in NC and that's all I know about him. I cannot find him in 1870 and in 1880 Eizabeth ( sometimes called Lizzy) lived with a daughter in Ennis Co,TX and a son Benjamin was working on a farm in Ennis Co. John Francis was my great grandfather and we have no other information about James or his family. In the 1860 and 1880 census transcripts the name is spelled Candle but the actual census is Caudle. If anyone has information on this family I would love to have it and exchange my great grandfather's info and what I have for Benjamin

I am working on my 3rd GG grandmother Lucinda Slavens/Slavin/Slaven. I have her in Texas in 1856. I have a rudimentary list of her siblings. It is suspected she is a daughter of John Slaven/Slavin from Sevier Co. Ark. I have found John on the tax rolls thanks to your site. I see a John Slavey on the 1830 census not far from Benjamin James, and I find this interesting because I have my 3rd GG grandmother Lucinda with her husband Thos J Edwards in the 1860 census in Texas living with a Benj James who said he was born in TN and is old enough to be an uncle of Lucinda. Might be James was her mother's maiden name. What we know is apparently, the family moved from Sevier Co. before 1850 - in 1840 there were 3 Slavens, John, William and Robert, all age 30 - 40, in the Sevier Co. Arkansas Census. By 1850, they had all moved on, probably to Texas. In 1850 Robert Slavens was living in Red River Co., Arkansas, birthplace unknown, with his children, all born in Arkansas. His wife had died in 1850, listed on the 1850 mortality index of Red River Co., Texas. By 1860, they had all moved on - I found one of his sons, Dickson, in several later censuses. I have not found John or William Slavens after the 1840 censuses. Any info you may have on Sevier Co Ark Slavens/Slavin/Slaven is appreciated! Thank you
