Looking for any information on Rev. Thomas J. Davidson and his wife Matilda. They lived in James Bayou Township from about 1836 to about 1845. Their oldest son, of the same name was born here on January 02, 1838. Thomas Davidson was a Methodist Episcopal minister. His brothers, who also became ministers, came to live with him in the early 1840's, as did his sister, Julia Ann. In 1842, Julia married Rev. John Henry Wade, who became a well known minister in Yellville, Arkansas. Around 1846 the family moved to Wayne County, Mo. Thomas stayed in this area until his death around 1869, but his brothers moveed south into Dunklin County. Any info. on this family would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, Tess Davidson Malta

I am looking for ancestors of my grandmother and grandfather.  I believe my grandmother, Lela Frances Dixon was born in East Prairie abt 1901 and was married to Jennings Bryan Byrd.  Her Parents were Laura Mayo and Andrew Dixon.  Jenning's parents were Sarah Evans and Andrew Byrd.  There are still some relatives living in the Charleston area, but they have not been much help with my research.  Any information would be appreciated.  Something that might ring a bell for some is my grandmother had a sister named Ruth Dixon who married Roma Turner who was an electrician? in or around Charleston.  Again, any info would be greatly appreciated.
