Hello Rhonda I have found nothing to indicate that Sarah and J H Eddings was married. 22 october 1880 Allen Singleton Eddings, Singleton is a Pidcock name and I have read that Catherine is buried in Grayson County,Sarah Bell probably wouldn't have named a pidcock name. If you remember Singleton is my G Grandpa's name. He was named for a Clerk in the Courthouse in Crawford Missouri who went extra mile to get Rosannah pidcock Mathews, her husband pension. I have no idea where Catherine. The only JOhn i found in Occela Cemetery in custer is a 10 year old child. I had read that J H is buried in one of the surrounding counties. I have looked and looked haven't found his remains yet. I did find Allen Singleton Eddings living with a sister Mabel Mae in Bennington Oklahoma. I think they grew up with a family member but don't know which one. I know Lyle my G Grandfather was living there for short time but not long was abt the time Zed Maws Pidcock (his son)died
from ruptured appendix and died from (spelling went south) however it was from infection dumping into body cavity was a very hard infection hard to treat now. I feel Baker died abt 1876 in Washington Arkansas, I have no idea where he is buried. I know that Nancy was living next door to Florence Mae Holt and family., Baker Caswell Eddings and Mary G Pidcock she was listed as Eddings also but Nancy was named the mother. I know they probably lived pretty close to the border of Grayson and Collin, Nancy was living in Collin., I also know that John Henry was held in Virginia after he was captured in CW the second time he was released after the War. But was held until in the area. From Virginia to Severs County Arkansas is a long way. He probably had his feet pretty much to get back. He was probably very hungry and probably very week so it took some time I feel that he got back and he and Margaret Catherine Married maybe 1866 since Aaron was born 1867 and then Lucinda Elizabeth came before the 1870 census, I have seen nothing to prove the other dates however he was single when he joined the military. He signed up in 1862, I feel catherine was in Hospital maybe confined. There was T B in those days in Texas yes they kept them in hospital her burial may have been in cemetery on the hospital grounds.

The last of the children were the ones to be born in Texas and the rest Arkansas.
Back to the lady in Crescent Cemetery she shares a Headstone with Husband Franklin E Smith He passed in 1919 need to find a marriage record for Virginia someone may have made mistake I did to if this is your lady. I did find her husband in the census with her daughter Mary lee but hubby was gone 1920 I think it was. Marriage record might make some sense. But unless you can post and some kind sole in Logan county might have I If its Franklin that might just turn into something.
