I am seeking information on my great-grandfather, Jasper Newton Norris.He was born 11-22-1872 in McNeil, Columbia County, AR.He died 10-31-1959 in Plain Dealing, Bossier Parish, LA.He is buried in Salem Cemetery.
He was married to Ada Wallace, born 1-1-1880 in Miller County, Arkansas, died 11-5-1914 possibly in Plain Dealing, LA and buried in Hosston, Caddo Parish, LA.They were married on 2-11-1904 and had several children.
His father's name was John, with a middle initial of either K or G.I believe that he lived in the Texarkana, AR area, possibly in Genoa.From what I understand, his family moved to Arkansas from North or South Carolina in the late 1700's or early 1800's.
I am particularly interested in any Native American ancestry on this side of the family.My grandfather, Jasper Newton Norris Jr., was obviously of Native American descent, possibly 1/2 or 1/4, and possibly Cherokee.However, we aren't sure if that came from the Norris or Wallace side.
Any information would be greatly appreciated.You can reply here or e-mail me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
