Her daughter Cynthia Ann Patton married my grandfather, William Smith Eidson They are buried in Zion cemetery Springdale Arkansas I need to prove my Indian blood. Would appreciate any help.

Louise Orique


Query: I want to prove my Indian blood. My great-grandmother was said to be of Cherokee full-blood. My grandmother Cynthia Ann Patton married Toy Young Eidson. Cynthia Ann Patton's mother was Lucritia Sarah Jones and married Paschal Patton who died in the civil war. Lucritia remarried Joseph Burchett in Barry CO. MO. I believe my great-grandmother was a widow, because Joseph Burchett died before she did. Perhaps she went by the name Jones again or Patton. I don't know if MO. was Indian Territory when she lived there, later becoming part of what is now known as OK.

Query: I would like to hear from anyone related to Elijah Bailey who married America Malinda Simpson in Barry County, MO. And also anyone related to George Simpson and John Wilkerson, former spouses of America Malinda Simpson's. She died in Leflore Co., OK after 1910 and before 1920, maybe around 1911. After America died, Elijah may have moved to Missouri to be near his daughter, Dovey Louise Bailey Payton, who was living in McDonald Co., MO. There is a marriage record there for someone named Elijah Bailey to Delilah Easter in 1911. Could this be the same Elijah who was married to America and who lived in Leflore Co., OK?

In 1860 Thomas was enumerated on the census in Maries co., Mo. After the death of his first wife in 1862 he remarried. Charles W Parker was the eldest son of this marriage. Thomas and Mary Carolina married in 1867 in Maries Co., Mo. In 1880 Thomas L Parker and family are enumerated in Washington co., Arkansas. I am trying to fill in the pieces from this migration. His brother Dozier F Parker is already enumerated in Washington co., Arkansas in 1870. I think they may not have taken the journey from Missouri together. There are so many Parkers in Arkansas from Cannon Co., TN., but, I have not been able to make a relationship.
