I find this obit interesting to say the least. even given its time.
|Rural Claiborne. Might they have enjoyed a similar view?|
|Was this a Claiborne Road less travelled?|
|Somewhere in rural Claiborne.|
|I don't think this old home belonged to my ancestors, but I imagine some of them probably lived in similar dwellings.|
Recently, while attempting to scale a
brick wall in search of a couple of great great aunts Jane & Lucy, I made what may be an awesome discovery!
I decided to locate each of their brothers, with the hopes that they were living nearby. And nearly fell over, when I couldn't find the youngest brother, Phillp in 1900. He's found up front and center in 1910, 1920, 1930-40. Thought that was weird, soooo, I verified his marriage date, and to my surprise, discovered that he didn't marry until Jan. 12, 1901. That might prove significant, because IF (and its a big if), he can be found in 1900, I MIGHT also find his mother and my great-great grandmother, Mariah!
It's uncertain what became of my great-great grandparents, Neal & Marian Glover. Folklore, (and several public family trees) say that he died in 1890. Exactly when where is unknown. There's no info on Mariah. When did she die? Before or after Neal? Assuming that Neal died first, did she move in with Jane or Lucy (if they were alive), or Phillip? I do know she was not iving with Philip & his family in 1910.
It appears that Phillip, though the youngest, was the first of The Glover Brothers to venture forth into Arkansas. His marriage record states he was living in Wheelen Springs, Clark Co. Arkansas at the time of his marriage. His wife lived there also.
Sounds like a good a place to start digging....Such possibilities!
****Hindsight is really 20/20. If I'd been tracking Phillip on a place/locale chart, I would have (let's be serious now), should have come to this realization sooner!
