Rule LineSHAKING YOUR FAMILY TREE: QUERIES 1999

I invite you to enter a query for your Sevier County ancestors but because of our limited space, please limit it to only Sevier County ancestors. If you are not sure what part of Arkansas your relative was born, died, or resided in, might I suggest checking the Arkansas Federal Census Index, ususally located at you local library or Historical Society or Genealogical Society, for the time frames before and after the one you think they would be in. Enter your query information exactly as you want it to appear including the name of the county in case of misdirection with one exception, please enter the surnames in capital letters. Also it would be helpful if in your subject box you type "Sevier Co., Ar." so that it is not overlooked or deleted by mistake. Every effort will be made to post your query as soon as possible. Once the queries have been archived for a year, I do not pull them back into my computer. So if you change your email address please send me a new query.

For queries email Kathy

COUGHRAN/CAUGHRAN/COTHREN/COHORN
Researching George COUGHRAN/CAUGHRAN who came to Sevier County sometime after 1834 in the company of Lewis COUGHRAN who I believe was his youngest son. I believe George may be the patriarch of all SW Arkansas COUGHRAN/COUGHRAN/COTHRENS, etc. I've been tracking him from VA and his name is spelled a little differently on every document I uncover. He was a Revolutionary War veteran who lived in Bedford/Campbell County, VA between 1781-1787. I suspect he was either born in Charlotte, Henry or Augusta Counties, VA, but cannot yet prove it. His father may have been William COUGHRAN who in turn was the son of John or Peter COUGHRAN, both immigrants from Ulster who resided in PA before moving south to VA. George left VA around 1790 and headed west through KY and (possibly) IL before arriving in AR by the time of the 1834 Territorial Tax Lists. He was in Sevier County in 1851 when he applied for a Rev War Pension and Bounty Land Warrant. At that time he was about 90 years old. On the 1850 census his name is spelled Cathern. Anyone have any information on this elusive old gent? 3189H Lake Powell Road, Williamsburg, VA 23185

JEFFREY
I note that Joseph JEFFREY is found in the census for this county in 1840 and 1841. Is there a soul that knows anything about this man. I located a notation for Joseph JEFFREY in the 1820 sheriff's return in Hempstead Co. for a Joseph JEFFREY and suspect it could be the same person. There was a Joseph JEFFREY in the early 1800s in Anderson Co., TN but he does not show up in any document for that area after 1806 that I can find.
