I am looking for information on my ancestors who moved to Arkansas, I believe to Miss. Co.; moved from western Tennessee. I am particularly interested in the years of late 1800's and early 1900's. These people would have been descendents of William HOLIFIELD who moved to Graves Co. KY from NC in 1800's. My limb of the Holifield tree later moved to Texas, but it is likely they moved to AR prior to coming to TX. Common spellings of the HOLIFIELD name were:HOLIFIELD, HOLLIFIELD, HOLYFIELD, HOLLYFIELD,




I am requesting information on Pascal RICE who lived in Mississippi County @1860 or 1870 and from then on just over the borderinto Dunklin County, Missouri. Pascal married Sarah DAUGHERTY or DOHERTY, awidow from Illinois who had several children, one of whom Elizabeth MarthaDAUGHERTY or DOHERTY married John STRATTON. Their daughter, Nebraska STRATTON,was my great-grandmother. She was born @ 1880 and married John WashingtonPOWERS. Family tradition states that Sarah, who was also called Wenokie, was a Chickasaw or Cherokee Indian, as was her first husband and all of her children. She was also supposedly descended from a Chief called White or Whitepath. Would also like information on a Liza Victoria DAVIS SWAN WOODROUGH (or WOODRUFF) who lived in Leachville, Arkansas at the turn of the century. Her daughter, Lula Ruth SWAN was my great-grandmother.

Help! I'm looking for CRIBBS. I know that my grandfather was born in Arkansas, Blythville, we think. His name was L.R. Cribbs but we don't know if the L.R. stands for anything. His father Will Cribbs may have been born in Arkansas too. I can not seem to find anything on them. L.R. married Mary Heard/Herod? and they moved to California.

My great grandmother was a Uzzell and lived at Pecan Point on the Mississippi River. I have been putting together albums of the family and realized that I know nothing about what has happened to the Uzzell family. My mother and her sister are deceased and they didn't pass information on to us about the Uzzells. We want to have a family reunion and would like to see if any of the Uzzells are alive so they can join the Bransons to celebrate our heritage. If you know anything about the Uzzells, I would love to know it or where to go to find that information. Thanks for any help that you can give.
