I am descended from Alexander Peten Morton and Elizabeth Ward through their daughter Martha Elizabeth Morton. She was born February 11, 1848 in Mississippi, married Galen A. Reynolds, and died on January 13, 1918 in Grant County, Arkansas. In 1880, the census lists a "Alexander Morton" as living with Martha and her husband Galen Reynolds. Although his relationship is listed as servant, he was Martha's brother.
Galen and Martha's daughter, Mary Jane Reynolds was my great grandmother. She was born June 1, 1870, married Richard Carroll Henson on December 26, 1889 and died on November 30, 1940 in Prattsville, Grant County, Arkansas. They are buried in the Philadelphia Cemetery in Prattsville.
Mary Jane Reynolds and Richard Henson had a daughter named Mary Jane Henson (my grandmother) who was born on January 9, 1910 in Prattsville, married Rufus Lilburn Crowson on Oct 1, 1932 and died on July 26, 1988 in Pine Bluff, Arkansas. They are buried in the Ebenezer-Tull Cemetery, Tull, Grant County, Arkansas.
Mary Jane Henson and Rufus Crowson had a daughter named Annie Ruth Crowson on August 1, 1933. This is my mother and she is still living.
So I am descended maternally all the way up to the Morton family. I have information for all or most of the children listed above. Some information came from my grandmother, some from my mother and some from the Henson/Reynolds Bible that my aunt has. I would be happy to supply this information for your Peden book.
Could you supply additional information beyond Alexander Peten Morton such as his parents, grandparents, their birthdates, etc.
