The Wisemans of Polk County Arkansas Updated November 27, 2006
About Our Family Research
My Grandfather, Samuel Elbert Wiseman (better known as SE Wiseman) was born in Vernon County, Missouri. He participated in one of the Oklahoma land rushes when he was fifteen. He later, at the age of nineteen, joined the Army and was a Spanish American War Veteran. He married Bessie Moore and settled in Scott County, Arkansas on a small farm in the Blackfork Valley of the Ouachita Mountains. He had the same name as his father, SE Wiseman. He had a brother by the name of Tom who had a daughter named Lucy. My grandfather also had a sisters named Lucy and Ann. Ann Wiseman married a Veatch and moved to Rocky Ford, Colorado.
I am trying to connect Samuel Elbert Wiseman, born in Vernon County Missouri to the earlier family that family tradition has as coming from Virginia.
