Re: Pughs In Arkansas
You gave us all that information about Jesse and Lydia and their children back in the early 1990's. At that time your records indicated that Ira and Elizabeth were cousins when married.

Then which line did the Ira Pugh, born the same year in South Carolina as your Ira Pugh come from that I have been researching in the census?
Some of the children of Ira and Elizabeth Pugh appear with the same names and living with a Ira and a Christiana Pugh in the 1860 census in Lowndes County, Alabama.
Then some of the children of Ira/Elizabeth and Ira/Christiana are living with an Ira Pugh, age 21, in Monroe County, Alabama in the 1880 census.
I can find no record of your Ira in Arkansas in the US Census.What record do you have of him leaving Alabama and residing in Arkansas?Was he married while living in Arkansas?
