Don't know how you got two census reports showing my great grandfather---not doubting you, but, I've never run across this conflict. The father of this ONE person is David Granville Capshaw, Jr.--his father is listed only as David, not David Granville.

From the Robert David Capshaw Bible flyleaf:
Annie Inez b. 1873
Benjamin b. 1875
Preston David b. 1878
Oscar Wylie b. 1880 d. 1882
Emmett Lonnie b. 1883
Oscar Wylie b. 1886 d. 1961 (yes, there were two)
Gideon Walker b. 1888
Ida Lou b. 1892
Granville David b. 1898
Walter b. 1898 d. 1898

Walter and Granville David were twins. Walter died as an infant. Oscar W. born 11/27/1880, and died 10/05/1882 was Oscar Wylie also.

Robert David and Florence are buried in unmarked graves in Woodman Cemetery, DeView,Woodruff, AR, which is about one mile south of McCrory, AR. (In 1997, I attempted to locate the grave sites, but was unable to do so. The cemetery records are inaccurate.

Arkansas Confederate Pension Index, A-G shows Capshaw, Robert David
Index of Arkansas Pensioners shows that Florence filed a claim (#29916) for Civil War Pension Benefits after Robert's death.

A probable burial location was located. If it can be confirmed, we, members of the family, will place a long overdue marker on the grave.

If you are interested in more, I am listed in the Heber Springs, AR phone book. Call me and we can establish a direct email link. I hate these boards on Ancestry.

I am interested in your link to or interest in the Capshaw
Family.

Jerry,

My e-mail address is rporterpapa@comcast.net if I do not hear from you in a week I will call you.

Also my tie to the Capshaw line is John Isaac Capshaw born about 1838 in Tennessee married Emily Louise Ferguson born abt 1843 in TN. John and Louise traveled to Arkansas (Hot Springs area I think) and settled there with their family. Their daugher Louisa Capshaw married James Knowles in Arkansas. James and Louisa had Byron Knowles which was my grandfather. I think the Knowles and the Capshaw's traveled by wagon train together from Tennessee.

Unknown first name Furguson and her husband Clement Henry Taphorn were my great-grandparents. Also great grandparents were Rebekah White and Joseph Capshaw. They were from Tennesee.
Their children, my grandparents were Josiah McDonald Capshaw and his wife Dora Bell Taphorn. My mother was the youngest of 11 children born to them in Caddo Gap, Arkansas (Montgomery County)

Linda,
Your Josiah McDonald Capshaw and my Louisa Capshaw were brother and sister. Louisa married James J. Knowles.
It looks like your are saying the parents of Joisah and Louisa were Joseph Capshaw and Rebekah, I am sorry that is not true.
First list the children.
Capshaw,
Louisa 1860 to unknown about 1890?
Joseph 1862-1927
John or Johnnie 1865 to unknown
Sarah 1868 to after 1930
Aminda "Kansas" Sept 1870 to after 1920
Susanna Dec 1879 to unknown
Rebecca ? she died on the move from TN to Ark maybe

The parents of these children are
John Isaac CAPSHAW Birth: abt 1838, Warren, TN Death: after 1900, Royal Arkansas
Emily Louise FERGUSON Birth: 1-Jan-1843, TN Death: after 1900, Arkansas Buried at Manford, Arkansas
Married: 25-Feb-1859, De Kalb Co., TN

Father of John Isaac Capshaw I think is:
William S. CAPSHAW
Birth: 1803 in Rutherford County, NC
Death: after 1870

I do not have a complete list for your side of Josiah and Dora.
Also just to let you know John had a brother Josiah born abt Birth: 11-Oct-1835 in Warren County, TN probably that is where your Josiah got his name.

Also I have some pictures if you give me your e-mail address or you can e-mail me at j.sammie1997@yahoo.com

Joy,
Thanks for commenting. I got my information off an old document I found of my mother's. It listed Joseph Capshaw and Rebekah White and Clement Henry Taphorn and Emily Louise Furguson but no dates. I've been in contact with Jerry Capshaw and he seems to have some extensive information but some of his was inaccurate concerning my mother's family. My mother was Virginia Capshaw, the youngest of 11 of Josiah and Dora's children. Sadly, my mother and all her siblings are gone now and I met few of them.

Linda,

Thanks for your reply.

I would love a detailed list of the children because you said there was 11 and I only have nine. Plus I have nothing on your Virginia.
Also I have some pictures I could e-mail you. Note my scanner is not working to well, but it is better than nothing.
Actually I think I have a picture of Josiah and Dora and family, I know I have one of your mother Virginia when she was a little girl.

My e-mail is j.sammie1997@yahoo.com

I have talked to Jerry Capshaw through e-mail but not to much.

FYI - Burial site for Florence Capshaw

My Grandfather was Emmett Lon Capshaw Sr. My father Emmett Lon Capshaw Jr. and my mother Audrey L. Capshaw attended Florence's funeral shortly after their marriage in 1946. Mom admits that it was long a time ago but she swears Florence is buried in McCrory, Woodruff, AR and there was definitely Headstones in place at that time.
