I think I have your Melissa but can't be certain. William H. Gupton married Melissa Myrick (B 1826) of Warren County on 29 Jan. 1851. They had 10 children by 1900. They were listed in Halifax Co. in 1880 census. In 1900 a Melissa A. Gupton was enumerated with Paten A. Upchurch and was listed as mother in law. Melissa and William had a daughter Gergianna (George Anna) who married Rolly A. Upchurch. Melissa and William H. did not have a daughter named Melissa. As to why someone would name a daughter Arkansas,,who knows,,I have seen Missouri, Georgia, Virginia and George Anna. I have also seen lots worse names!!!
