States: Arkansas: Saint Francis
I am looking for any information on the Stokes family of Saint Francis County. The Melvin Stokes family was there for the 1920 census. That household included Melvin Stokes age 26, his wife Lena, daughter Lula May, his father Walter Stokes, age 55 (who was a widower), and a boarder. The 1930 Saint Francis County census showed Claud Hughes, his wife Carrie age 29, and 6 Hughes children and one stepson William Swindle. Carrie Hughes was the sister of Melvin Stokes. The wife of Walter Hughes, Maggie, died between 1910 and 1920. I cannot find a death certificate for either Walter or Maggie Stokes. Maggie is said to have died near Newport in Jackson County Arkansas. W.L. (Walter)Stokes and family including Walter, Maggie, son Melvin, dau. Mary L.(Lela)and Carrie dau. were in Jackson County for the 1910 census. Looking for any information on this family such as contacting any family members, the place of burial of Walter (W.L.) Stokes. I would be glad to share information on the Stokes family. Bobbie in Louisiana
