I am looking for more information on Simeon Byrd Norred. His grandfather was Preston Byrd Norred. He was born around Navarro County Texas in 1875 to John Norred and Martha Susan or Susan Martha ?. He had one full sister, Sarah (Sally) Bell(e) Norred (married Lawrence). John died in 1880 and the family moved to Hodge, LA.
My grandfather (his grandson) was always told that John was a law man in Texas. Does anyone know where I could find out more about that?
Also, his mother remarried Benjamin F. Powell in Jonesboro, Louisiana. They had several children and Simeon and Sarah are listed as a half siblings in the obituary of Henry Edward Powell in Winn Parish. Anyone know her maiden name?
He married Mollie E. Carson d/o William J. and Julia Ann Phillips.
Any information on any of these people would be appreciated.
