Re: Marhard, complainants in Equity Case 7071...


Thank you for your informative reply. I'd not specifically researched or identified Mack's parents, but ironically had some limited info. about them. Creasy Colbert and Hardy James had another son, July Stevenson (b. Jan./July 1826, whose enrollment application was cancelled. Noted dead on cc638, July reportedly died 7 Dec 1901 and a POD was filed Oct. 1902. Yet to locate Mack and/or Elsie's enrollment data. But found Mack's wife, Elsie enumerated alone in the 1900 IT census as Elsie Stevenson, head, blk female, Sept. 1835, 60yrs., married 35yrs, 2/2 kids; MS MS MS. Note that she's not enumerated as a Widow, but married.

Now, Hardy James had other children:

CEASAR/CAESAR STEVENSON, abt. 1853, Choctaw Frd Roll 3020, cc34 (Mother: Nancy Yocubly)

HARDY STEVENSON(Jr.), abt. 1864, Choctaw Frd Roll 3038, cc90 (mother: Salina Purcely)

You know these surname associations seem very strange.
July's wife, Mary Ann (Colbert) Stevenson is the dau of Amerika Colbert (bef. 1822) & Isom Colbert (bef. 1820). So, it appears Mary Ann was born a COLBERT. However, even though the surnames of July and Mack parents are JAMES & COLBERT, the brothers use the surname STEVENSON.

The followng might be relative, or at least something to consider...

Hardy James was also known as Hardy STEVENSON. Hardy's "reported" owner was JAMES Roberson (aka Roberson JAMES). Also, Mack's wife, Elsie (COLBERT) Stevenson was the only child (1 of 14) of Laney and Mobile COLBERT's offspring that apparently used the COLBERT surname. Note that Elsie's sibs used STEVENSON (you'd think that they'd have identified themselves as COLBERT's). But now, MOBILE's parents were NAHO and Mary STEVENSON. Perhaps, prior to marrying Laney, MOBILE used the surname STEVENSON and subsequently his children chose to identify themselves as STEVENSON's (the surname of their paternal grMother).

What are your thoughts?
