Yes, I'm sorry to say I am that one who posted so much wrong information. The only info I had was from a journal from one of my older cousins, whom I never met. As I have checked with other cousins recently and with Jim's help I have learned that not all we are told is necessarily accurate. She said grandmother Enos (Mariah) always said she was "Black Dutch" and was from Germany. From this she related that my grandparents were born in Germany. I have very little information about my grandparents since they first appear on the Saline County Census in 1890. Apparently Mariah E. married James Plesent Thompson before arriving in Arkansas (he was born in Alabama). But I do believe they were here before that 9 year period that was not accounted for since my grandmother was married here in 1891 and she often told me that my grandpa Ragan worked for my gGrandpa Thompson for five years before they were married. My mom and all her siblings well remembered their grandma Enos Thompson and she apparently lived here during their growing up years. Some of the older siblings remembered ggrandpa Enos but he died before my mom was born (1912). I have often wondered where ggrandmother Enos was buried since gggrandfather Enos is buried next to my ggrandmother Mariah E. Thompson. His headstone states W. A. Enos Sept. 26, 1821 - Sept. 28, 1907. My aunts and uncles always talked about ggrandpa Enos having a sister, Aunt Jane (Conway) and a brother Wil who was married to Irene (I'll have to check last name). Mariah E. and grandpa Thompson's oldest son Robert Thompson never married until very late in life and he ran off with Uncle Wil Enos's wife (Irene). It was stated that they never came back to visit except to granpa's funeral and Uncle Bob came alone. I do remember as a very young child him coming to visit my grandmother and I never understood why she met him at the gate and talked. I never remember him coming into her home. I have a picture of Mirah E. Enos (Thompson) and I'm going to try to send you a copy of it, but not today. I'll have to collect my thoughts on how to do it. Thank you so much for answering my message. I'll try to get my papers all together on this end and maybe I can be of some assistance.
Again thank you and Jim so much for helping me.
