Jesse Parchman-Archada Dowdy

In Reply to: Re: Jacob H. Parchman, Stewart Co., TN, 1850 by Marcia Brewer Cox of 161

James Wilson Smith's 19 April 1838 will named his father, Lemuel Smith, dec'd; mother, Susan Dowdy; sisters Evaline Dowdy, Oreana Stanfield and Sally Tyson; nephew James Wilson Parchment, aged 5, son of Jesse and Archada Parchment, and other children of Jesse and Archada. (Stewart Co., TN WB D, 216; no probate date) I therefore think that Archada (various spellings) was a Dowdy rather than a Johnson, as listed in some county histories.

Sukey (Susanna) Milam, daughter of James Milam and Rebecca Jackson, married 1. Lemuel Smith, who died in May 1817 in Stewart; m. 2 William Dowdy.
