Hello, I am new here and I am a grand daughter trying to find some answers regarding my great-great grandparents.I know very little but if anyone knows any of the following I would appreciate any and all assistance.This is what I know so far.
My Great Grandfather was Dave Birdwell and he was born in Tennessee and came to Arkansas and Maude LaCook-Roff and they had 2 sons here name Millard and Bart.He left her because he thought she was trying to kill him. But, as years have passed we have found out that he actually had kidney stones and that was the cause of him being sick all that time.I have heard that he went to Texas and may have even remarried there and could have had other children I am not real sure.But, he eventually moved back to Tennessee in a place called Falls Creek and he is buried there in a cemetary near a place like Grugsville Grundyville or something like that.Not real sure about spelling at all that is just what it sounds like.Well anyway his Dad was supposed to have been married to indian named Rebekah.But I dont have a lot more to go on yet because a lot of my grandmother's family is no longer living so I am trying to find things out about my family because I have 2 children and my brother has 2 children and I would like to be able to tell them about their history.
if anyone can point me in a direction, I would greatly appreciate it very much!
God Bless, Jeanie in Arkansas
