I am looking for information on my great-great-grandmother, Elizabeth Sarah Norwood, who married Green Ambrose Atkins. William Masters Atkins who married Harriett E. Bell was Green's nephew. I think that there is a Bell and Norwood connection too. In the 1860 LA Claiborne Parish census records there is an E. Norwood (age 15 born in AR) living in the household of L. M. Bell (age 36 born in MS)in Terryville. Elizabeth Sarah was said to have been 1/2 Cherokee Indian. Harriett E. Bell was said to have been adopted by the Bell family and to have been 1/2 Cherokee Indian too. There is a story of adoption in our family, but I do not know if it was Elizabeth or her mother. Now, it is looking like it was Elizabeth Sarah who was adopted by the Bell family too. I am wondering if she and Harriett were sisters. There is also a Lucinda Norwood who married Green Atkins' brother, James. I think that she is a sister to Elizabeth Sarah as she has the same Cherokee Indian blood and adoption story. G.L. Knowles who witnessed Green and E. S. Norwood's marriage record lived nearby in Terryville. If anyone knows any information about any of these people, please let me know.
