Artie Massey and John Fowler were my grandmother Ann Fowler
parents. They were married and my grandmother and mother
were born in Arkansas.This was well know in the
family.Artie died around 1913 when my grandmother was about
12. Rumor was that John Fowler was English and might have
gone back to England.We do not know anything factual about
Artie was born in Tennesse in household records and census
both in Tennessee and Arkansas.Also known in family.Artie
shows up on Tennessee 1880 census in (William)Henry Massey
household.Next she shows up married in 1887 in Arkansas.
The 1910 Arkansas census lists Artie and next door to her it
lists Henry Massey.
The Tn State Library shows two marriages for William Henry
Massey in Madison Co in the 1850's. One is to Mary E
Copeland in 1855. The other to Mary Elizabeth Adams in 1859.
I am guessing he married twice and Adams was Artie's mother.
Also Henry and Mary shows up on Madison co Tn 1860 Census
living next door to the Adams family.
