Re: Halley Dunsworth/Scotland Arkansas

In Reply to: Re: Halley Dunsworth/Scotland Arkansas by ROBERT W. DUNSWORTH of 43

Thanks for your reply and the information, since I posted this message, I have been in contact with a descendant of Josiah Dunsworth and Kate Massey Dunsworth, named Halley Dunsworth (looks like there were a lot of Halley's and Josiah's, in the Dunsworth lines) and he has sent me information on the family.
My reason for wanting the information on Halley Dunsworth was curiosity about Minnie Hawkins being his wife, which one source has told me Halley had married a Minnie Hawkins, but I didn't know if her information was correct. I have a picture of my grandfather, Oscar E. Givens taken with a Minnie Hawkins, and I haven't got a clue as to whether Minnie Hawkins is related to my family or not. My connection to Josiah(Joe) Dunsworth would have been through his wife Kate Massey, and their children, but the Massey line is my grandmother, Nora Massey's line, so I haven't been able to figure out "why the picture of my grandfather with Minnie Hawkins", it looks to be a studio picture.
I had a lot of relatives that were from Scotland , Arkansas, Van Buren County, and am really having a difficult time getting them all in the right families, so many on both my grandmother and grandfather's lines almost seem to cross at times. Both my grandparents were born in Scotland , Arkansas and moved with several of my grandmother's siblings and their spouses to Oklahoma around 1920. My grandmother had one brother who remained in Scotland, Arkansas, John Henry Massey. One of his sons still lives at Clinton , Arkansas.

The information I had on Josiah Dunsworth being killed crossing a swinging bridge had stated that his brother Halley Dunsworth was also in the vehicle, but survived. The informaton may have been incorrect, not sure, or Halley may have been a cousin to Joe Dunsworth. The informaton came from a Van Buren County History book that was published in 1976.
