Hello, Patricia: Glad to hear from you. Thomas D. Lloyd and Sarah Ellen Shaver were my great-great grandparents on my fathers side of the family. Their daughter, Hester Ellen Lloyd married James Jefferson Cooper in Greene County, AR. and their daughter Julia Frances Cooper Rogers was my grandmother. I had knowledge of the O'Steen's through Mrs. Nola Whitman Hoover, who lived in Little Rock years ago. She gave me practically all I know about the Lloyd family. She was a granddaughter of G. W. "Cap" Lloyd and his wife Fannie Highfill Lloyd. She also gave me old church records from Woods Chaple Methodist Church that Cap pastored at in the late 1800's. I inherited all my aunt Cora's personal things when she passed away with a good picture of the Coopers, Lloyds and O'Steens. Have always wondered if there were any of Thomas D. Lloyd and Sarah. There is a big book about the Shaver family, that a professor Cary Anderson, wrote some 15 years or so ago and I helped in the research for it. We found that Joseph Shaver, Sarah's father, married Mary Ann Corzine in Cabbarus County, NC in 1809. Nola gave me a type written page by Ki Lloyd, son of Cap Lloyd, that gave an account of Sarah Shaver Lloyd and said that she was one half Cherokee Indian and wore her hair in a braid, also smoked a corn cob pipe. Have you seen this account? Other sources said that Joseph Shaver married three times, the last one to Anne Searcy but the 2nd marriage, no one can seem to agree on. It was said that her name was Malinda or Amanda Greenwood. I have been in touch with other people working on the Corzine name and they all say that they don't know about any Indian blood in their family. The Greene County Historical Society recently published a Family History Book. I wrote a history of the Lloyd and Cooper family for the book and also sent what pictures I have. If you should want one of the books, I can send you an order form. They sell for $59.95 plus $5.00 but it is a big book and beautifully bound. There are a lot of family histories in it. I was born in Paragould in 1926 but moved to Missouri when just a small boy. I always went back every summer to visit until I went into the service in WW2. Would be glad to hear from you again.
