The letters you mention are identical to Ruths. As a matter
of fact they were copied from originals owned by Lloyd
McGinty. Ruth and I visited Lloyd and Benoina together and
were permitted to make copies of the letters and other info
found in an old trunk belonging to the late Thomas and
Louise Tarkington McGinty. Lloyd is a grand son of Thomas
and Louise. His father was Joseph Harve McGinty the young-
est son of Thomas and Louise. Thomas was Joseph Jackson McGintys' son b. 1844 Conway Co Ar. That Thomas was my Gr Grandfather.
Tracing Eli McGintys' parentage has been beyond my ability.
Every source I'v tried was unsuccessful. Some possibilities
you might consider are four sons of Joseph Jackson b. 1770
eldest son of Robert and Deborah Jackson McGinty. Josephs'
sons who moved to Arkansas in the 1830s were: Robert,John,
Jonathan, and Joseph Jr. Any one of these McGintys could
be Eli's father. Two McGinty men served in the Arkansas
Cavalry in the Civil War and both died in the battle of
Shiloh in Tenn in 1862-63. They were R.N. and J.W. (initials
only). I found that info at the Los Angeles Ca central
library in 1970s. Your Eli b. 1855 could have been the
son of either one of those McGintys. The H.T. Bradford you
mention was a great uncle of my mother, Opal May Bradford
McGinty. Her father's name was also H.T. (Henry Thomas)
Bradford b. 1873 a nephew of the H.T. you mention.
Wish I could be more specific.
