Wish to exchange data on these surnames: HARPER, KIDD, BEVILL, MORGAN. Families migrated in 1849 from Shelby Co. AL to Claiborne Parish [pre-Lincoln Parish]. Among them was Rebecca MORGAN HARPER [1800-1865] who was the widow of James Washington HARPER [1790 Elbert Co. GA - 1840 Shelby Co. AL]. I have much information on their descendants. His brothers Thomas Martin HARPER and Henry White HARPER also migrated. The latter's descendants became doctors for Lincoln Parish, as well as pastors, carpenters, and Confederate soldiers. William Webb Harper [m Lucy ALLEN] believed to be a brother. James Henry KIDD [1805 Elbert Co. GA - 1877 Lincoln Par. LA] and his wife Betsy E. Bailey [1807-1881] came. I have theirs and many family group sheets. Some KIDDs settled in Jackson Parish instead of Claiborne, Joseph Webb KIDD [1808-1855], brother of the above James Henry KIDD, being one. His wife was Elizabeth Caroline MOORE. Two of their children are the ones mentioned with the Kidd/Davis Home, now the Lincoln Parish Museum. Some of the KIDDs married LEWISes; HARPERs married BEVILLs. Have been to the parish library, and there are practically no records on these families. Need to find death/burial data for Rebecca Morgan HARPER. Other MORGAN researchers: is she the daughter Becky of your family?

Grandpaw Terry died in his home in Claiborne CO in 1977. His father's first name is not known to me, his mother was a BALLARD. Grammaw Terry's father was only known to my mother as "Boney" Malone, who was supposed to have been from Ireland. Her mother was known only Mamie, maiden name MALLOY. Elvie Virgina Terry neeMalone may have been born as early as the beginnings of the 1870s and I have no idea of how many siblings she had.
