  • I can think of four reasons man families emigrated to Texas and Arkansas from North Alabama (especially Jackson County) in the mid-1800s. 1. With the advent of large families on family farms, the original acreage was not sufficient to divide between 3 to 12 children. 2. Land was cheap and plentiful in the early days of Statehood in Arkansas and Texas. 3. By 1857, a family could...

  • I checked the 1850, 1860, and 1870 Jackson County censuses and there is no one listed by the name of Eliza Kelly. The 1880 census shows an Eliza Kelly, born 1852, married to Francis Marion Kelly. A check of this couple on Ancestry.com shows that he died in 1922 in Lemoore Kings, California, and Eliza Kelly died in 1923 in Lemoore Kings, California. Ann B. Chambless

  • I am considered an "oldtimer" and this has been called the Finney Cemetery as long as I can remember. I have Hollis ancestors buried there. My great-grandfather's sister, Mae Hollis, married Richard (Dick) Hayes. Ann B. Chambless .
