Thank you very much for the information. I don't have access to the Federal census for Arkansas, so, yes, the 1880 information for a John and Martha McCrary, and others in their home, would be of great help. Those McCrarys continued naming their children by the same given names, generation after generation. The 1880 census would also show the birth states for their parents.
Thank you again. Bob Stevens Darlington, S.C. firstname.lastname@example.org
