I don't know all the names of Thomas and Rosanna children for sure, but I do know they had 5 sons and 5 daughters and only 4 sons are listed on the probate records. I assume their son James died prior to the probate listing. The other 4 sons are Hadden, Thomas, Samuel and David M.

Thomas had a daughter Margaret and his daughter Elizabeth married Isa Bettis. He also had a daughter Nancy that I believe married an OneaL. The others I'm afraid to comment on until I look at the marriage records again.

Thomas who married Rosanna had a brother Samuel that married Mary Peel and he had 4 sons and 4 sons
The 4 sons are: Garrett,Thomas who married twice 1st to Sarah Ann Nelson and then Mahulda Watson, James F. who married Mahulda Meacham and Carson the 4 girls are Margaret that married John Neal, Joaneor Louisa, Elizabeth and Centhiana who married Stepen Neal.

The Eliza that I have been trying to figure out with no avail yet was born in 1842 and living with Mahulda Elms te widow of Thomas Elms the son of Samuel. I at first thought this Eliza was the daughter of Thomas by his first wife Sarah Ann Nelson. His probate records doesn't mention an heir named Eliza.

If this is the same Eliza age 18 in 1860 then she is married to George Cagle in 1870 and listed as 28 years old born in Arkansas. There is a marriage record og a George Cagle marrying an Eliza Elams in Van Buren County Arkansas in 1864. I 1870 Geoarge and Eliza is in Independence County Census.
So you can see I'm stumped for now.
