MELTON FAMILY

Classification: Query
Surnames: MELTON
My grandparents, Ethan Bird Melton and Carrie Jane Doster Melton and 12 children came to Arcadia, Bienville Ph. by train in 1904. They were met at the train depot by the "Williams" family. They went south of Arcadia and lived on Williams Creek until around 1906 when they moved to a small community called "Midway". This was located on Hwy. 80, halfway between Arcadia and Simsboro (Lincoln Parish). They lived there until 1924/25 when they moved into Arcadia town. Grandpa opened Melton Chevrolet. They lived there until he died Dec. 22, 1935. My questions: does anyone know where Williams Creek was and who owned this land? Have you heard of Midway? I'm thinking Midway was possibly in BOTH Bienville Parish and Lincoln Parish. The Meltons are in the 1910 census for Lincoln Parish but I can't find them in 1920. I would appreciate any help you can give me. God Bless. Linda James Heath
