Does anyone know who this Edwin and John Stallings were?
Edwin Stallings age b. bet. 1810-1820 married with children, and John Stallings b. bet. 1800-1810 married with family, living in Noxubee Co., MS in 1840. They are not there in 1850 unless I missed them.
But, by 1850 Duke William Stallings b. abt 1816 was living in Noxubee Co, MS along with his wife and kids.
Duke has been given as the son of James Norris Stallings (ca 1790-1830)and his wife,Sarah LNU.James died bef. Nov. 1830 as his brother, Greenberry Stallings was named as guardian of two of James's children, Elizabeth and Duke William Stallings.
As far as I know these were the only children of James Norris Stallings although a third, a dtr. Martha Stallings has been given as a child.No dates for her.
Elizabeth was born ca. 1812, nothing more on her.
I've tracked Duke's family to MS and some to TX.
What connection does Edwin and John Stallings have to Duke William Stallings?I don't think they were brothers, but do believe they may have been cousins.
