In the 1880 US Federal Census for Cedar Creek, Crawford, Arkansas, 48-year-old Kentucky-born farmer Samuel and his 41-year-old Tennessee-born wife Nancy [Nelson Frizzell Blackwell] Sweptson have in their household their 2-year-old Arkansas-born daughter Effa, Nancy's daughter from her previous marriage, 14-year-old Arkansas-born Mary Blackwell and a hired hand, 22-year-old Arkansas-born farm hand N. S. [Newton Sylvester] McKasling [sic McCaslin]]. Samuel's father was born in Virginia and his mother in Kentucky, Nancy's parents were born in Virginia, where Effa's father and mother were born is not recorded [Kentucky and Tennessee, respectively], Mary's father was born in Arkansas and her mother in Tennessee, and Newton's father was born in Indiana and his mother in Missouri. Newton and Mary will marry in about 1881. In the 1900 US Federal Census for Oliver Springs, Crawford, Arkansas, From: "OW and Elaine" <owelaine@hotmail.com> Subject: [ARScott] Nancy Abigail Nelson Blackwell Sweptson Date: Thu, 11 Mar 2004 21:04:14 -0600 References: <200403112300.i2BN010T029969@lists5.rootsweb.com> For several years I have been asking for help with this Nancy. I have more information now and hope that it may ring a bell with someone. Once again, please forgive me for this being so long. 02 April 1839 Nancy Abigail Nelson, born to Reuben Nelson and Nancy Pearce, born in Tennessee. 1850 census of Independence County, AR with her parents 1859 probably married J. F. (or I. F.?) Frizzell and appears on 1860 Scott County, AR census in Hickman Township (I believe that she was referred to in an 1865 letter as Nancy Frizzell.) abt 1865, marries first Unknown Blackwell. Probably Anthony Blackwell who was killed by bushwackers (probably in 1866) 1870 Crawford County census N.A. Blackwell appears in census with her 2 brothers, Martin Nelson and R.R. Nelson and a 3 year old daughter, [Mary Elizabeth Blackwell who married Newton Sylvester McCaslin in 1881] 1877 marries Samuel Sweptson, Crawford County, has daughter, Effie A. who marries Moses Harvey Dotson in 1895. I am descended from the Blackwells, the Nelsons and the Frizzells, so Nancy was a 3 way aunt to my great grandparents, James Martin Blackwell and Mary Ann Frizzell. My questions are: 1) Does anyone have any information on J. (or I.) F. Frizzell residing in Hickman Scott County in 1860? 2) Does anyone have any information to confirm that the father of Mary Elizabeth Blackwell was Anthony Blackwell? Thank you for your time.
