Does anyone know this Sumpter family group, 1900 census, Young Twp., Boone Co., AR, p. 1 (Dwg. 10, Fam. 10):
SUMPTER, Lizzie M. (head) b. Sep 1862, age 37, widow, mother of 8 ch., 6 living, b. TN, fa. b. TN, mo. b. TN, farmer.
SUMPTER, Harvey L. (son) b. May 1884, age 16, b. AR, fa. b. TX, mo. b. TN, farm labor.
SUMPTER, Perlie (dau) b. Feb 1888, age 12, b. AR, fa. b. TX, mo. b. TN.
SUMPTER, Stella (dau) b. Feb 1893, age 7, b. AR, fa. b. TX, mo. b. TN.
SUMPTER, Merlus(sp?) (dau) b. Apr 1895, age 5, b. Ind. Ter., fa. b. TX, mo. b. TN.
SUMPTER, Elsie (dau) b. Jan 1898, age 2, b. AR, fa. b. TX,mo. b. TN.
Also on p. 1 (Dwg. 7, Fam. 7) is this couple:
DIXSON, John J. (head) b. Apr 1828, age 72, married 6 years, b. NC, fa. b. NC, mo. b. NC.
DIXSON, Liddie (wife) b. Dec 1831, age 68, married 6 years, b. TN, fa. b. TN, mo. b. TN.
Lydia Sumpter married John J. Dixon 17 Dec 1893 in Harrison Twp., Boone Co., AR. In the 1910 Boone Co., AR census John stated this was his second marriage, and Lydia stated it was her first, so her maiden name must be Sumpter. I would like to determine Lydia's ancestry. In 1900 she was living so near the widow Lizzie Sumpter family group, I wonder if they were related.
