I am still looking for my ggggrandfather & ggggrandmother Marcus & Mittie Friarson/Frierson who were born in North or South Carolina.They moved to Tennessee where their son, Alexander John Frierson was born on June 15, 1821 in Tennessee (unknown County at this time). Alexander John moved from Tennessee, maybe going to Mississippi with Col. JOHN MILTON KELSO (KELSOE) father & mother. Col. Kelso was born in 1838 in MS.
Col. J. M. Kelso is a well-known attorney of Magnolia, Ark., and his life, with the exception of the first nine years, has been passed in Columbia County, his acquaintance therefore being an extensive one. Although he was born in Mississippi in 1838, the principal part of his education was received in this State, and at the age of twenty years he entered the law office of Sumte & Askew, and after a searching examination was licensed to practice his calling by Judge Len B. Green, in 1859. In 1868 he was licensed by the superior court to practice his profession in any court of the State, and he immediately after opened a law office at Magnolia, where his practice began to steadily and substantially increase. He was married March 3, 1863, to Miss MARY L. WYATT, of Magnolia, a native of Kentucky, and a daughter of Dr. ALFRED and MARY (JOHNSON) WYATT.
I have information that Col. Kelso lived in Mississippi as well as his father and mother, M. G. and SUSAN (FITZGERALD) KELSO, who were born in Kentucky and Virginia respectively and lived in Quachita and Columbia County, Arkansas.
COL. KELSO at a very early day removed to Mississippi, and there lived for a number of years. In 1847 he came to Arkansas, and in the spring of 1848 settled in Columbia County.
Col. Kelso supposed was the slave owner of my Friarson/Frierson family of Columbia County, Arkansas.
If anyone has any information about these families, please post here or contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
