Classification: Query
Surnames: Dyer, Willis, Blount
I have not taken the time to type this out: Look in the 1850 & 1860 Rapides parish census: Bryant Dyer's mother was a child listed in household #480, her father, William Dyer died that year so mother: Jemiama Willis ( Dau of Rev. Joseph Willis) she listed as head of house hold & she is age 54, note she takes back her maiden name too!. Children: Roland 20, Josepe (M)19, Elijah 16, Elizabeth (aska) "Betsy" is 14, Jemima 11, James 23.
Check out 1850 census the Blount house hold # 625 Alexander age 42 from MS. wife Mary 30, Sophia 13, Mary L. 8, Martha M. 6 Sarah E .8 mo. I had recorded this thought in notes once & stated this man had a 14 year old son. But did not put that name. They would be about the same age???
But Betsy Dyer did not have Davis b.1858 & Bryant 1865 at as so young woman. She was 23 & 29 when she had the first two sons and then had 4 more children in 1869 Mary "Ella", 1873 Leona, 1876 John Allen, & Maude 1888.
All these children carry the Dyer name. Betsy's son Bryant had a son Tom Johnson with Babe Johnson & never gave Tom his name! Family Legacies????
Anyone looking for these names, I have it to share in a gedcom file!
