I have what seems to be an unknown Eaves. My great grandfather's name was Michael Marion Eaves.He was born 1875 Caddo Parish , Louisiana and died 1955 Fouke,Arkansas.
He married 1.Elizabeth Barker - one son named Rufus Eaves
2. Rosa Lee Wilson- 11 kids- This is my great grandma.
Now here is my Big Brick Wall. Michael Marion's father's name was Samuel(Saml) C. Eaves. According to the 1880 census Caddo Parish,LA ; Samuel was born abt. 1845 Kentucky and both of his parents listed as being born in Kentucky. Samuel married Elizabeth Harris Williams,a widow with two boys,in 1874 Caddo Parish. The record is transcribed as Saml.Eaves and Mrs.Elizabeth Milam(according to 1870 Caddo Parish census it is really Williams). Samuel and Elizabeth had three kids by 1880- sons Michael Marion ,Sanford Edgar, and daughter Pryor.One of Elizabeth's sons from previous Williams marriage is listed as well in 1880 with them as Thomas Eaves. Michael and Pryor are living together in 1900 Miller County,Arkansas. Sanford is in Texas I believe. My pawpaw doesn't know anything of his grandparents.He didn't even know his dad had a sister. Sanford maried Rosa Lee Wilson's (Michael's wife) older sister Emma Wilson and had six kids with her.They mostly lived around Caddo Parish. I cant find a Samuel C. Eaves or Eves b. abt 1845 on any other census.If anyone has any information on Samuel or anyone else from this Eaves branch , please let me know, my family would be very grateful.I don't where Samuel came from for sure or where he or Elizabeth went.
