My grandfather was Robert Franklin McMaster, b.Oct. 20, 1849 in Mississippi (not sure about place of birth). His mother died when he and his sister were small, and they were raised by their grandparents in Fulton, Miss. Their father left for parts unknown. Robert married Margaret Ellen Carroll on February 16, 1869. There were 11 children: O.F. (sex unknown), Ed; Willie Bob; Maggie J.; JesseA; Marshall; H.R.A. (sex unknown); Stella, Ollis; Herbert, and Ora. If anyone has information on Robert's father or grandparents, I would love to hear from you.
