Edward Etchison, son of Luckett and brother of Nathan, was listed as 18 years of age on the 1850 Davie County census. He is still in North Carolina in 1870 but later found in Boone County, Arkansas in 1880.
Etchison, Edward 49 Jane 41 (wife) John J. 22 (son) Sallie 17 (dau) Lugene 14 (dau) Emmy 12 (dau) Laura 10 (dau) James L. 9 (son) Shad 6 (son) Lydia 4 (dau) Edda 2 (son) Lillie 4/12 (dau)
My gggrandfather, Nathan, moved his family to Boone County sometime between 1884 and 1888. He died in 1893. His wife, Mary Anna Tucker, remarried about 1900. It was after that Nathan's sons Edward (my ggrandfather) and his brother, Tom, left Arkansas and moved to the Brush Hill community near Checotah, McIntosh Co, Oklahoma. They moved there to farm with their uncles.
I am now trying to find out which uncles were in Oklahoma. It may be that Edward (son of Luckett) moved to Oklahoma after 1880. I know that many of the Etchison family members moved back and forth between Arkansas and Oklahoma.
