Asbury Baxter Stell was my great-great grandfather. Our family record, as given to me by my grandmother, Sena Roach Ramer, before she died, shows that he was married first to Sena (not Isena) Wilbanks (only one "l" in our spelling), then Elizabeth Jones.

Asbury's farther was Robert Stell (b: 3-2-1792), who married Winnie Gentry (M: 12-19-1811). Robert is buried in Wilder Cemetery in Plumerville, Conway Co., AR. Robert was the son of Dennis Stell and Sarah King from Gwinnett Co. GA.

Baxter and Sena had a daughter Amanda (b: 1858) who in 1878 married Joseph D. M. Roach (b: 1857).

Joe and Mandy had sons Baxter, Mancel, and Milford; daughters Oma, Eva, and Sena. Sena (b: 12-3-1894) was my grandmother whom I spoke of above. Mandy named her daughter Sena after her mother, Sena Wilbanks. This is how we know the spelling of her first name.

Incidentally, my grandmother said we indeed did have Indian blood not too far back. But I think in our case it was through her father Joseph Roach rather than her mother Amanda Stell.

I would appreciate receiving any information you may have on any of the above.
