Rebecca and John may have traveled from NC to Atalla Co, MS at the same time as her brother, Thomas; the 1850 census of Atalla Co lists both families, living very close to one another. It is quite possible that the two families later traveled together to Drew Co, AR, or if not, that Rebecca and John came to Drew Co after Thomas moved there in 1851.
