My Elizabeth Rush Netherly and her two sisters Josephine and Mary Frances were orphaned between 1856-1860. The 1860 Census of Union Co. AR found Elizabeth (14) in the household of J. E. Hawkins and Mary Frances (9) was in the household of James F. Temple and wife Sarah Ann Rush. I could not find Josephine. There were several Rush families all apparently related. They had migrated from Franklin co. MS.Some had paused briefly in LA on the way.
The oldest Rush was Elijah who had a housefull of young people from 25 - 6 but there was no wife. He had married Caty Sorrels in Amite Co. MS 23 Dec 1816.
Elizabeth married William Netherly and died in Sevier Co. AR Mary Frances married James Wise Hammack 9 Dec 1875 in Magnolia, Columbia Co. AR. She died in Lamar Co. TX.Josephine married Edward Hammett.
Any information on any of these people would be greatly appreciated.
My surname list is: Rush; Hammack/Hammock; Hammett; Netherly/Nethery; Temple; Hawkins;Sorrels. ThanksJeanne Brooks firstname.lastname@example.org
