Subject: [ARIZARD] look ups?
Date: Tue, 7 Feb 2012 21:40:22 -0600
Is there anyone on this board who might be willing to do a look up for me or refer me to someone???
I am one step away from getting my DAR membership, I hoping to find paper trail proof that George & Rhoda Shied/Shedd were the grandparents of Rhoda Ann Elizabeth Shied/Shedd
Perhaps a guardian ship paper giving Rhoda Ann to her grandparents?
What I know...George Shied & Rhoda Unknown were in
1850 Union Izard, AR
1870 Conway, Izard, AR
George died 12/31/1870 & Rhoda ‘Rhody’ 1/7/1852- both are buried at Lunenburg Cemetery in Izard County
George & Rhoda's son and Rhoda Ann Elizabeth's father, Hayden L Shied, came to Ar with them in c. 1840s but was back in Coffee Co, TN by 1850.
Their granddaughter is Rhoda Ann Elizabeth Shied
1850 living with them in 1850
1860 with John and Elizabeth Ellis in Rocky Bayou Izard Co
Rhoda Ann married Isaac Qualls 9/23/1866
Issac was the son of John and Louisa Qualls (listed as Quarrles in the 1860 Conway Izard CO Census)
The following is information from a letter from Rhoda AE Shied Qualls daughter Lillie Bell
I am the youngest of five children born to Isaac Qualls (1847-1885) and Rhody Ann Elizabeth Sheid (1846-1893). They were married at LaCrosse, Ark. In 1866 and moved to Franklin Co. where their children were born. Isaac was the son of John Qualls. Rhody was the only child of Haden L. Sheid (1810-1852), born in S.C. I do not know anything about her mother except that Rhody was living with her grandparents, George (1788-1870) and Rhody Sheid (d. 1852) in Izard Co. as early as 1850. ---- According to census records George Sheid was born in N. C. and his wife in S.C. Their children were Haden, William T. (m. Sarah Criswell), Noah (m. Elvy Jane Criswell), Sybel "Sibbie" (m. _ Clay), Mary (m. _ Lacefield), Elizabeth (m. Ellis), Martha (m. R. D. Harris), and Anny (m. John Phillips), All of the Sheid children were born in Tenn. except Haden. Haden and brother William T. left Manchester, Tenn. and moved to Izard Co Ark. in 1848, and the entire family was there in the census of 1850, !
except Haden who had returned to Tenn. ---- As far as I know the marriages of the Sheid children above occured in Arkansas with the exception of Haden and possibly Anny. According to an old Bible record' he died in 1852
Thanks so much!!
