Surnames: Kibby, O'Shields, Carter
In the 1850 Census for Planters Twp, Phillips Co, Thomas Kibby, age 13, is shown living in the household of Johnson Blankenship.

In the 1850 Census for St. Frances Twp, Phillips Co, AR Elizabeth O'Shields is shown as Betsy, age 19, living with her parents, Isaac and Jarvey O'Shields

In the 1860 Census for Planters Twp, Phillips Co, Elizabeth (shown as E.M. Kibby), age 26, is shown living with her husband Thomas Kibby, and their 1 year old son Isaac Kibby. Her brother Thomas N. O’Shields, age 21 is living in the same household.

I can find no listing for Thomas or Elizabeth in the 1870 Census.

In the 1880 Census for L’Auguille Twp, Phillips Co, Elizabeth Kibby, age 48, widowed, and her daughter Jinnie Kibby, age 16, are living in the household of her brother Richard L. O’Shields. Living in the same household are her sister, Jane (O’Shields) Carter, age 44, also widowed, and her 2 children, Gauff Carter age 18 and Joseph Carter, age 18.
I have found no later records of Elizabeth or her children Isaac and Jinnie. I theorize that Thomas Kibby and Thomas Carter (husband of Jane) were killed in the civil war but have found no records. I would like to contact anyone that knows anything about these families.
