I am aware of Landown Ware Oglesby's birth and move to Texas.I show him living in Clay County (History of Clay County book) prior to his moving to Texas.
According to my GGrandfathers Children, Landon was a bastard child.We are not sure as to who his Mother was.Some say Emily Staggs and others say Ardela Fisk Staggs.
Ardela was the sister-in-law to Emily.
Ardela's Brother was Arkley Fisk.He was a Physician at the time of Landon's Birth.
Some say Landon was given to the Staggs family for care because one of the women was under age and the other was divorced.
We have found Landon in the Jackson County, TN census listed as an infant living with another family (Tillman).
The same census shows him living in Overton County, TN with Mary Staggs.
Any additional information would be greatly beneficial.
