I have a question for those of you who know something about the Applegate family. My 3rd gr grandfather George Washington Carr had a brother named Elihu or Elisha Carr. He moved to Stone County with his mother Nancy and sister
Bethena, plus relatives named Edwards and Taylor in the 1850s. On the Stone County Genweb site there is a record of Elihu (Elisha) marrying a Rebecca Lawson. However, I have found other records indicating that her maiden name was Applegate. There are a very few Applegates in Stone County census records, but I have found more of them in Douglas County, living around the Maggard family. Does anyone out there have any knowledge of this Rosa Applegate? I suspect she married someone named Lawson and then married Elisha Carr. The marriage to Elisha took place in Feb, 1870. Here is a link to my family homepage if any of you are interested:http://familytreemaker.genealogy.com/users/s/c/h/Robert-L-Sc...
