Martha Underwood b. abt 1830 in Mo daughter of James Underwood b 1804 VA lived with family in Mo. They moved to Arkansas. Her mother was Elizabeth. I don't have any idea of what Elizabeth's name was before she married Underwood. Martha had a brother or "uncle" stolen by the indians. Does anyone know this family?

The Underwood family was from around Smithville AR. Was your grandfather part indian? Our relative seemed to have had one son. He and his son came back to the Smithville area. The son stayed but then went back. He (the son) was half indian and went back to his mother's people so he would probably have married an indian girl and their children would be mostly indian. We have no idea of what the son's name was.

Perhaps if you asked Louie's mom if any of these names sound familiar.. Capt James Underwood, Martha Margaret, David, John Jamison, Matilda, it might help jog her memory and give you a lead. They reused names a lot. There is a good family listing at He has several families go to the Underwood family geneology.

sorry Robert but the web address I gave you before only opens the advertising part of this mans web page. So the correct address is
After you get there is when you go to the geneology part and click on the name Underwood. New at this and what shows up in the address part isn't always where you think you are I guess.
