Re: Rafferty,Tennessee and Arkansas
I worked with the federal census again today,and I currently lean towardChristopher Rafity being Thomas' father.
1870 Ark census, Sedar TWP, Carroll Co.,show Thomas, 30, married to Mary Louetta (as we know-neHead), children: William and Sisroe ("Roe").They live next to William and Martha Head,and have with themMartha and Mary Eliz. Rafferty,exact ages of Christopher's girls in the Howell ;Co. MO 1860 census,where they also lived next to Wm and Martha Head. Mary L. was born in MO.She is buried in Fairview Cemetery,Vinita OK as Sweatman,whom she subsequently married,which you may know.What is your connection?.My mom is the daughter of Maynard R., son of Wm. T.Rafferty.
