RE: Richard Deaver
Thank you so much for your info. I too am a relative that seems to be drowning in a sea of Richard Deavers. Trying to piece together with the help of DNA the puzzle of my past. DNA is directing me in the direction of Rebecca Shipley, Misal Deavers. I have found that the Richard I was asking you about is not the same man. I know from research that the Richard I seek was put into an indentureship at the age of 6 by his father. I know he lived in Page County Virginia and produced children with the wife named of Jane who's past seems to be as hard to discover as Richards has been to uncover. There were 4 or 5 in the same area's and same time frames. So I am going through a process of elimination as there info has been all twisted together for so many years. And I can't seem to find official graves for any of them. Thanks for your help again.

Hi Guys
I want to thank you for the info you provided on the Richard Deaver family. I am trying hard to solve the puzzles surrounding these families. Do you have any clue where Richard is buried ? And is this part of your family too?

RE: Kenneth's photo
Yes, if you would like to transfer his memorial to me that would be fine. I'll notify my other half brother and sisters.
Thank you!

RE: Lewis Line
Actually it appears that after the death of Isham, Phoebe married John K. Adair, who died in 1894. Phoebe's daughter, Mary B. Lewis, was the one who married Joseph F. Adams. My step-great-grandfather is descended from Mary & Joseph. Their daughter, Ova May Adams, was his mother. I do not know much at all about the Lewis family as this is not a line I've concentrated much on thus far.

RE: Re: D.D. Reavis
Unless you are in the Dawes Report, the Cherokee Nation s not much help. That is unfortunate because of all the Cherokees in the east who were land owners in their own right and were no evicted and forced marched to IT.
Nonetheless, I heard about the Library in Westville from a couple who overheard and joined my conversation with the Park Ranger at the Prairie Grove Battlefield. They mentioned that there are records there about other Cherokee families.
The Battlefield Park personnel were fascinating. Learned a lot about the Civil War in Arkansas. Also, they were well equipped and had uniforms. Their primary weapon was the British Enfield Pattern 1853 that fired mini balls. These were obtained by an astute individual from Arkansas who had the weapons dropped by Yankees retreating to Washington gathered and shipped back to NW Arkansas.

RE: Re: D.D. Reavis
You can see it on my tree in Ancestry.
And yes, the spelling is all over place, which could explain the Arkansas Death Certificate Records page with Daniel Doi Reavis.
Back to the Gist's, I have a copy of Tremble's work. I believe its called the Jarret/Gist. Very interesting because I have maternal and paternal Gist.
Another question for you. Have you heard stories about many of Indian Blood not declaring so when asked? I heard that in Missouri you could not vote if of Indian heritage.
Also, have you heard of a Cherokee Library across the border in Oklahoma near Siloam Springs in Westville?
And by the way, Thanks for the correspondence. I have enjoyed your posts, and appreciate your work. Thanks for sharing!

RE: Re: D.D. Reavis
Yes, in the couple of years before she died, Barb Lucas (our Reavis Family Historian and author of a 4 Volume Set) and I worked to determine if the Joseph Reavis (James, Jr. Older brother) was indeed my lineage. This was Barb's missing link and it wasn't until we discovered Morgan Reavis within a few miles of D. D. that we might have a better connection. At least the dates and ages added up to the earlier census.
Unfortunately we never got her first volume corrected and many Reavis/Reaves/Reeves/are is researchers still use the old entries from that first vol.
Still I wish there were more proof and that could be the death certificate. I have also begun making contact with some of the relatives of y grandfather's brothers and sisters. Although Thomas Jefferson Reavis lived in a house on my grandfathers property, my dad does remember any stories he told about his family or that of his grandmother.
The Civil War may be the issue - TJ married the daughter of a Yankee soldier from Missouri just 50 miles away and they ran north before getting married near Tarkio, MO. Ironically both families lived the battlegrounds of the Civil War. Pairlea Turner Reavis was raised in Newtonia, MO the site of two battles where Indian troops on both sides and blacks of the KS volunteers engaged each other. Did they meet on the battlefield? Maybe
Yes I have information on the Fox's, they lived with Morgan and Nancy Bagwell.
As for the Gist's they are on both sides of my family!

RE: Re: D.D. Reavis
Thanks for the reply and I am aware of the Arkansas Death Certificate record but without the actual death certificate well we have a debate. Yet David has been used in many records from the census to land transactions in Washington County and church records. We believe the middle name is Doyle. His father we believe is James Morgan Reavis who died in NW Arkansas in 1870. If I may make a request, keep your eye out for a Morgan Reavis and wife Nancy Bagwell Reavis (d. 1871).
When we find David in Elm Springs in 1860, just a few miles north an across the county line in Osage Mills are James Morgan and Nancy Reavis. Later he moved a little further to the east near Bentonville, maybe being displaced by the war ( surprisingly both families survived the Civil War in that part of the world!)
To go on with my story, Morgan had a sister Elizabeth who married a David Doyle. To make life more interesting, they had another brother David whom 3, yes three children married three of Elizabeth's and David Doyle's children. The David name was already established and with the marriage into the Doyle family, it appears even into the generation of my grandfather.
Of course I can't argue the Daniel because it also became the name of another great uncle and then for my brother. As for myself, the third to be given the name James. My father told few stories about his family, even the secret of just where the Cherokee Indian rumors came from when my grandfather, dad, brother, son and niece all have features of that heritage. It wasn't until we discovered David D. Reavis' pension from the Cherokee Cavalry of the Confederacy and the real possibility that his wife was Mary Ann GIST ( Sequoyah's English name) that maybe there was some truth. They all lived in that part of NC and TN that the Cherokees had settled some becoming landowners and therefore would not have been on the trail of tears. The Cherokee connection could also be why the move from Bledsoe County TN to NW Arkansas, in what was then the extended territory of the Cherokee Nation.
Nonetheless, you are the first Find-A-Grave folks I have encountered. And although I have been to that far corner of Elm Springs Cemetary, the question about Morgan and Nancy Reavis remains and then there is the possible second wife of Uncle David also named Mary that must be buried somewhere. Thanks for your work on the behalf of all of us.

I am sorry, but I do not find where you sent me the dates for Sarah Agnew. If you will send me a message, I will get that put on her memorial.
The information I put on about her children was in a newspaper article when her husband was killed. I will get that changed.
Thank you for all your hard work on the Elm Springs Cemetery.

Hi Dennis- Thank you for bringing that to my attention. I did delete him. I am so glad someone has restored Susans headstone. That cemetery is beautiful, however some of the stones were in drier need of restoring. I remember about 10 stones were placed on top of each other in the ground under a vault and it made me upset seeing it as such. Hopefully since the time I was there they have taken care of it. Have a Great Weekend! Cindy
