I am descended from Elijah Ivey and Mary Sessions. Their daughter, Lucinda (born 1839 in Arkansas). She was the mother of Eliza Jane Sessions Williams (born in Arkansas June 7, 1844), who married Ambrose Blackwell in Scott County, Arkansas sometime before 1860. My great-grandmother, Naoma Jane Williams Sullivan was the daughter of Eliza Jane and Ambrose. Her son, Orval Gateing Sullivan, born 2/1916 and died 4/21/1952 in a plane crash in La Puente, CA, was my grandfather. His ony child, Richard, (b. 5/15/43 d. 6/1/2004), was my father.
I would be grateful for any more information on the Sullivans/Iveys/Sessions families.
