In the 1850 census of Sevier County, Arkansas, Jefferson Township, Paraclifta P.O.,household No. 247 lists the following people:Ewing Belsha age 49, born Tennessee--occupation Miller;Jane Belsha age 40, born Tenn. Zachariah Belsha age 23,born Tenn.--occupation Miller;Calvin Belsha age 21, born Tenn., a farmer;Richard Belsha age 19, born Tenn., a farmer;Mary Belsha age 10, born Alabama;Margaret age 3, born Arkansas;and John Bennett age 20, Oliver Lackie age 16 and William Lackie age 15 (all farmers, born in Arkansas; Eliza Lackie age 10, John Lackie age 8, Oliver Lackie age 13, all born in Arkansas and Elizabeth Lynch age 20, born Tenn.
In the 1860 census, same state, county and township--household No 610 was Jane Belsha age 40(did they make mistake on age?), born Tenn.;John Lackie age 15; Margaret Belsha age 13; and another girl, looks like initials N?A., both born in Arkansas.
I believe Margaret was the daughter of Ewing and Jane.
I will keep looking for more information and let you know if I come across anything that would be helpful to you. So long.
