Ooooh!!! Every where I look all I get is dead ends. I just have no reason to believe that this VanHook family was ever in Louisiana, or Arkansas. I may be wrong, but I think my Frances E. VanHook that was born in TN with parents from NC then migrated to Brown County IN. But according to my findings, the first a VanHook shows up in IN is 1870 where there is a Louisa VanHook 45, born NC with children:John 14, Mary 9, Malinda age 7, all born in IN. The personwho researched this is assuming that Frances E. VAnHook was an older child of Louisa. Frances married Andrew Fry in Brown County. I have marriage certificate, but it doesn't list parents names. So, maybe I'm just looking in the wrong places. it gets so frustrating sometimes.
