Searching for any information about his parents or siblings. Nothing is known of them.
I, along with others working on this line, have been unable to locate any additional link to prove he was born there or the names of his parents/siblings. Other family surnames include: CASEY, STEWART, SWIFT, DAVIS, CLOUGH. We know that some of these families traveled together by wagon train in early 1800's. Many of his descendants settled in the AR OK areas. Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated. We have photos and documents to share.
