Looking for information on the following family:
Matthew Page, son of Abraham Page and Sarah McLemore, was born in Barnwell County, South Carolina. He married first Lucy (Youngblood, as I just found) ca. 1851 in South Carolina. They had pos a John (uncertain if age 8 is correct) James F, William Presley, Robert L, Jesse Irvin, and John (per 1860 Copiah Co Census). Lucy must have died soon after and Matthew married Sarah A Smith 17 March 1862 in Copiah County. They had Joshua D, Floyd M, Sylvania V, and Larence M per the 1870 Shelby County census. I am not exactly sure where everyone went after that.

In 1880, I do find a Page in Shelby but I believe this may be Matthew's brother Joshua. I'm planning to work a little more on that one.

I note several Page family members in Nacogdoches County by 1900. I am still matching initials with which ones.

Would like to share any information with anyone who connects.
