Jerry,

This is in reference to Arcada Johnson Smith wife of Jesse Parchman, and Mother of John J.(Coon) Parchman.

I am in correspondence with another of "Coon's" great grand children. His grandmother was Sally Weakley, Coon's first wife. His grandfather is Guy Parchman, son of Sally and Coon. Dora was Coon's second wife. After she died he married Alma Bridges, who was a year younger than my grandmother. I remember going with my grandmother to visit her when I was a child.

According to my cousin, Arcada was the daughter of Susanna (Sukey) Milam and Lemeul Smith. (I am also related to her on my father's side of the family. My great grand great father Adam Sampson Milam was Susanna's brother)

After Lemeul died Susanna married William Dowdy. This is where the confusion comes in regarding Arcada's last name.

Coon's daughter Mary Johnson Parchman was my mother's mother. Mary married John Hill Thomas in 1910. Their daughter Velma was my mother.
