Have a 1923 newspaper article that lists my ggrandfather, E.S. METER, of Lauderdale County, TN going to Monette, Ark. to visit relatives. Can anyone tell me in which county I would find records for Monette in 1923?
Monette, AR is located in Craighead County.
By the way, I am searching for info on my Jackson, Dalton & Street ancestors
who lived in Monette at about that time. In particular: Evelyn Paul Jackson b.
June 11, 1923 in Monette. Her parents were Cecil Paul Jackson & Minnie Ethel
Dalton m. in Monette in 1920. Cecil's sister Maggie m. Joel Street and they
lived either in Monette or Buffalo Township. They had children - 2 were named
Richard & Fred. There are some questions about the other kids names. Cecil's
father was Robert Andrew Jackson from TN. He was married to Eupha Day.
Robert's father was Tom Jackson from TN. He was married to Margaret Armitta.
Also looking for info on Robert's brothers - Charles & Fred. Evelyn had a
sister named Louise & a brother named Robert who m. Stella and moved to TX. We
are having a very hard time finding information, so anything you might run in
to would be welcome & I would be happy too share as well!
Unfortunately, I do not know where my Grandmother, Minnie Ethel Dalton was from. I did not know my Grandmother and info has been very hard to come by. However, I do have a brother that was born in Louisville, KY. Also, a census from Craighead County - 1900, lists the place of birth of my Greatgrandfather, Robert Andrew Jackson as KY. Robert was Miinie's father in-law. There is conflicting info on this though... another census says that he was born in TN. That's also what family lore says.
Maybe will could share some additional info and see what turns up!
Do you have any DALTON lines from KY? Like Ohio Co. and
Breckenridge area? And then they moved to ILL. some of them?
Because I have some in my line.
