Some census reports list Alvin Tannehill's birth place as Missouri and others list Arkansas. According to family tradition his mother's name was Mary Payne but this has not been based on any documentation. The first record found on Alvin Tannehill is the 1870 census of Webster County, Missouri, where he is listed as age 11 and living with Wiley and Lucy Ann Stevenson (nee Tannehill). By 1880 when the census records report the relationship of each person enumerated to the head of the household, Alvin Tannehill is living in Ozark County (Jasper Township) with his uncle's family, Jessie and Maria Tannehill. He is listed as age 20, born in Missouri, with his father born in Kentucky and his mother born in Missouri.
Mary Alice's father, Daniel Lovett Quick, deeded his land prior to his death in June 1900 to Mary Alice and her husband, Alford "Al" Tannehill. Source: Biography--Daniel Lovett and Susannah (Tennon or Tixin) Quick, A History of Ozark County, MO, 1841-1991, pgs. 460-461.
