My husband, Robert REDDELL, b. 1935 in Newton Co. AR. is descended from the same TENNISONs, IN to MO to Newton Co. AR. His gg grandfather, John TENNISON [s/o Tom]who m. Rebecca GILMORE [d/o Levi]was living near Big Creek, not too far from Mt. Judea, Newton Co. It's called Mt. Judy, by everyone]
John was murdered by Chief Longhair and his murderous band, just as the Civil War was beginning. His wife, Rebecca, had given birth to their 9th child the nite before, who
they named Matthew Asa TENNISON. John didn't want to fight for the the south, and that was
good enough to ge him killed. On one side of Big Creek they were southern sympathizers, and on the other side the were for the Union.
John's dau. Mary Ann, age 7 at the time of her father's death, later fell in love with Simon Solomon SUTTON, [s/o Ephraim & Barbara
[GALBREATH]- IN, White Co. AR/Stone Co. MO/
Newton Co. AR.] They were my husband's, mother's grandparents. She was Gussie Opal SUTTON, [d/o William Robert SUTTON, 1st child of Mary Ann & Simon, and ELizabeth [Lizzie] FARMER, [d/o Joseph C. FARMER & Mary
Ann [BURDINE]. I have family info, and would be happy to share all.
