"Notes from one of his children

"Finis and his wife Sarah left Tennessee sometime in 1868 or 1869 with a number of families and friends in covered wagons headed toward Lead Hill Arkansas. Their first child Ida was born in Tennessee died as a infant their other nine children were born in Arkansas.

"Finis and his family left Lead Hill Boone County Arkansas in the latter part of 1890 accompanied by the Simp Beard family.

"They made the trip in covered wagons and had to stay ten days at the Phillip Burgets' place in Oklahoma because of high water and muddy roads.

"There I saw my first high chair and as all their children were to big for it , they let me eat in it. We arrived at the John beard [sic] place in Coleman county, near Old Rough Creek schoolhouse after a six week trip. Dad bought the old Redding Homestead farm from one of the Strayles and we moved in. This was a adjoining farm to the Beard farm. This is where we lived until we married an [sic] our parents died. Lawrence and John drowned in the Ward Tank near the schoolhouse, having gone there from school.
