I am searching for the Ervin Willis Weems, Sr. family. They moved from Winn parish in 1924 to Franklin Parish. They lived in Hill Ridge as sharecroppers. The person owning the land name was Dr. Wooten. I am looking for anything that will help. I found a baby that was born to them (Shirley Jean Weems) and a ggg grandfather (JJ Weems) in Crowville Cemetery. This is my grandmother's family. They had 12 kids. I know the children attended Hill Ridge School or possibly Waverly School. I have a good bit of information, but I would like to go back past my ggg grandfather.

Hi there. I am researching the Chisholms who were in Winn and Franklin Parishes from 1860-1913. I'm looking for any information regarding William Allen Chisholm - who married Nancy Elizabeth Arledge (they had a son named Moses Flanaghan.) I believe the Weems married into the Chisholms - as well as the Guytons. Any help would be appreciated. I'm also looking for any living descendants to correspond with.

Thanks,
Teresa

I don't know much about the McVay side. Other than my grandfather was born in Paris Arkansas.

I do know that Ervin Willis Weems still has living children in the Monroe, Winnsboro, Rayville, areas. Some live on Hill Ridge road. I'll have to talk to my Mom, She is the grandaughter of Ervin Willis Weems.

Also, I believe Ervin Willis Weems Sr, married Lettie Chisolm. They would have been my great-grandparents. They had 12 children. 10 girls and 2 boys if I'm correct. Their son Ervin Willis Weems Jr. is my grandfather. He married Bessie McCoy. My grandpa's brother and their other son was Jack Weems. He lives near Monroe, I believe. William and Nancy would be distantly related to me somehow if they were related to Ervin Willis Weems.
