Re: TWEEDY Conway County, Arkansas
1850 census Robert Tweedy's family as well as Jackson Tweedy's family living in Conway Co, AR.Jackson was two household from Robert. 1860 census has Jas. M. Tweedy 17 living in household of Eliza J. Cooper 31, however, Cooper has been written over the name Tweedy.
Lewis S. Tweedy was in Lovely County, Arkansas about 1824-1828. He died in Conway Co 1835 (Arkansas Gazette Newspaper). Left widow & two children. He married Melissa Titsworth 1834 but marriage not found in Conway. They are missing some marriages about that time. He was a merchant. There were Titsworths in Conway about that time but no probate or guardianship for Lewis. Lewis was witness to various documents in 1832-33.
There were other Tweedys in Conway: Albert Tweedy & wife 1852 sold land to Wm. O. Wilson; Robt Tweedy gave James Hollyfield POA in 1852.
Who is Lewis S. Tweedy?If he was 21 (adult) in 1824 he could have been about the same age of Robert & Jackson and might be brother or uncle or ?
Where did other Tweedys including Jackson go?
