Lois, I found a listing for your ancestors in a book called The New Ozark Cousins by Bud Phillips at my library today. In it has information about your Martha Emeline Reddell. It shows her born Lawrence Co. TN on 4July1838. Married to Peter Ogan Pruett in Newton Co. AR abt 1859. Death date as 24July1877. Listed her as a daughter of William Reddell.

After she died Mr. Pruett married Mary Ann Townsend Ladd. The subject of my hunt.

Apparently this book is full of the Reddell family. I only copied the page I needed so I can't give any more information.

This book is being sold by the Newton Co. AR historical society. I can give you their address if you are interested. I am not a member of their organization although Newton Co. is the next county from me.
