I am Geraldine. My search is for the family of William Clay Marion Essman or Scott County, Arkansas, born in 1886. My grandfather was Clay Essman.He had a brother named Stonewall Jackson Essman.He also had a brother named George(don't know resident) andJoseph(Joe) (who resided in Mount Ida, AR.). Other brothers named Thomas, Leland(Lee)and Jasper(Jape). I don't know that much about them except what my mother told me.There were three sisters named Sarah Jane, Alta Mae and Callie. Do you think this is the same Essman family you are looking for too.I have just began my search but I have gotten a lot of information so far.
