One of our Donahew's/ Donaho's is living with an Arch Cathey family in the 1860 IZARD CO. AR Census. Henry Donahew b. abt. 1780 NC / TN has little data to know where he was prior to ARKANSAS but he is my GGGG Grandfather on my maternal side of DAVIDSON/ WEAVER/ McAFEE/ DONAHEW family.

Inman/ Inmon Donahew/ Dunahoo b. abt. 1841 TN is believed to be the son of our JAMES DONAHEW b. abt. 1817 ( son of Henry Donahew b. 1780 ). JAMES DONAHEW b. 1817 had probably died young and before the 1850 census of his father HENRY DONAHEW. James had two sons we believe who then lived with their paternal grandfather, HENRY DONAHEW in the 1850 Izard Co. AR Census. We think possibly that Inman lived with the CATHEY family in 1860 Izard Co. AR as his grandfather had died by the 1860 Izard Co. census.

What can you tell me about an ARCH CATHEY b. abt. 1800 GA who married wife MARY b. abt. 1811 KY and any connections to the DONAHEW/ DUNAHOO families ? Would he be any kin to the ARCHIBALD CATHEY you had mentioned in these documents. I know the name of ARCHIBALD CATHEY repeated in a lot of the CATHEY lines, if I recall correctly.

Thanks for any help as we are at a loss to explain the reason INMAN would be living with the CATHEY families in Izard Co. AR in 1860, unless there was a family relationship of some sort. Tina Rogers Beller.

Per Tina Rogers Beller files :

per the 1850 Izard Co. AR Census 10/16 Image of microfilm copy of census :

464 464 Henry Donahew age 70 M Born : TENNESSEE ( b. abt. 1780 TN )
James Jr. 13 M Born : TENNESSEE
Inman 9 M Born : TENNESSEE

Then we see that INMAN DUNAHOO is listed in the CATHEY household in 1860, had his grandfather HENRY DUNEHEW died by 1860 ?

per the 1860 Franklin TWP IZARD CO. AR CENSUS June 15th Big Spring PO, image 32

Inman Donahoo - Izard - Died Picahontas, AR 1862
" A Good Story" Where I was and What I saw during the Late War" by Elihu C. Bechkam, Sergeant Co., "K" , 21st ARK.

"Just here I will state that there were only two companies of McCarver's Regiment with us at that time, the other four companies having left for Bowling Green, KY, sometime before my enlistment. These companies were commanded by Captains Elkins, Wolf, Matheney, Airington, Shinpock, and Nunn. Several of the soldiers died while here, mostly from Measles, among whom were Davids Bone, Joel Battles, INMAN DONAHOO and Joe Miller. Sergeant Sam Taylor, while in a play with John Strother, accidntally broke his leg and was sent home. Capt. Elkins was sick and sent home at the same time and never came back to us. "
