Elbert & Elvira Merida / Meredith

Surnames: Merida Meredith Kinser McMillan Scruggs Sisk Bewley Cook Jack
Need more info on Elvira Merida/Meredith born 1 June 1833 in Tenn. She married 24 Sept 1854 in Greene Co TN to William Alexander Jack. They migrated to Washington Co. AR by 1860 where she died 11 Feb 1874.

Assuming she is the same Elvira Merida in Greene Co, who on 9 Oct 1850 was a minor orphan over 14 years of age, who chose John W. Sisk as her guardian. John Sisk married Elizabeth Bewley in 1846.

Elvira's brother? Also in Greene Co. on 1 Feb 1841, Elbert Merida/Meredith, orphan 10 years old 14 July 1840, was bound to Johnathan R. Cook who was married to Sarah Scruggs. An Elbert Meredith married Mary E. McMillan in 1859 and settled in Brown County, Indiana. He named first child Elvira.

Were they related to Richard and Catharine (Kinser) Meredith, also of Greene Co TN? Any help or suggestions greatly appreciated.
