I am looking for any information concerning H.N. UPTON, married to Sarah ? (possibly MORSE, MORRIS) born in Ark. H.N. UPTON died in Rusk Co.,TX before 1865 and his widow, Sarah, married James H. SCATES, who was a baptist preacher. Sarah and James later settled in Shelby Co., TX where SCATES established the First Baptist Church in Center, TX. The history of the First Baptist Church in Center, TX states the Baptist Churches of Shelby Co. were organized under the name of Pleasant Grove Baptist Association and at the Second Annual Session of this association held with Mt. Zion Baptist Church, Rusk Co., TX gives the Center Church as a member and J.H. SCATES as pastor. I am researching SCATES, but need the UPTON information to get a general location of Sarah and SCATES before they settled in Shelby Co.,TX. Any help with UPTON or SCATES would be appreciated.
