I am researching the family of my G-father, John McConnell Mathis who married Tryphene Eugene Gregory in Denver, AR in 1880.(Note, spellings may vary depending on who wrote it)
John M. is known to have had two brothere, William (m.Fannie Dixon)and James (m. Amanda Johnson). All three wives were Carroll County ladies, and William and John held land in the vicinity of Denver, AR around 1890 to about 1893
Tryphene was the daughter of James J. Gregory and Sina Josephine Myers.Both of her parents were born in TN.
The TX 1900 census notes that John M.'s parents were both born in TN, but we don't have any knowledge of their names or place or datge of birth.
This has been aa brick wall for us for some time. If anyone has any knowledge of this family we would be happy to exchange information.
