Hello, I am researching my sister in law's african american family history. Her family mostly resided in Arkansas. Here is all i know about them
1. Godbold family
Samuel Godbold who was born circa 1920 in Arkansas, m. a woman by the name of Rowena(sp)Perry and they had a child by the name of Vivian Godbold b. 1955. Their family is from the Hot Springs, Arkansas area.
I would like to know when and where Samuel died.
I do know that Samuel's father was George. That is all i have on that family
2. Johnson Family
D.C.(Darnell(sp) Johnson was born circa 1908 in Arkansas and married a woman by the name of Henretta Dailey(sp-Daily). It is believed that he died in 1988 in Phillips Co., Ark. They were the parents of six children all born in hempstead Co., Ar: Stevenson, Valerie,Roy, Johnnie(sp-Johnny), Katy(still lives in Hope,Ar),and Andrew.
Any more info on the parents and siblings of D.C. Johnson(Darnell) would be greatly appreciated
henrietta dailey was the daughter of Ola(?) and unknown Dailey. She was the only daughter of these parents. Her siblings are(don't know if these were actual names or nicknames):Vanilla, Dock,Roy,Eli,Gus, and H.M.Pulp Dailey.I do know that Ola b. 30 October 1886 and died in November of 1973, Hope, Hempstead, Arkansas
Freeman(aka Fermon) Lockridge b.January 8, 1907 in Arkansas, d.November 1986 in Pulaski Co., Ar(Williams), m. Daisy(whose either married name or last name at death-was Blankley). They both resided in Flint, Michigan for a while. Freeman(Fermon)went on to marry again a lady by the name of Nazaree. Daisy and Fermon(Freeman)had two children: Riley Lockridge, Sr. b. 1930, Arkansas, d. 1967 in Flint, Michigan Freeman(Fermon) Lockridge Jr.b., Arkansas.Riley's obituary states that they were both residing in Michigan at the time of his death. I guess they may have moved back to Arkansas before they died?
Riley Sr. Lockridge, Sr. married Katy Johnson and had Riley Lockridge II b. 1952 and Daisy Mae Lockridge, 1951, both stayed behind in Arkansas when he moved to Flint. Riley Lockridge Sr. died in Flint, Michigan at the agoe of 37. Katy never married again although she did have six more children with 3 different men.
