THE FOLLOWING IS SENT AND CONTRIBUTED TO THESE FILES BY JAY POWELL, WHORECIEVED THE STORY FROM D.A. FERRIS OF LITTLE ROCK, ARK., OCT. 14, 2007IN AN E-MAIL:
"...Here is a story passed down. John Mastin came to Tishomingo Co,Mississippi and appearantly was living with his daughter Nancy CatherineTurner Farris. Nancy's husband James Monroe Farris had gone to theMountains of Arkansas because of some trouble. Champion Farris, Monroe'sbrother had a large farm and promised to help take care of Monroe'sfamily until he returned. Champion later followed Monroe into theMountains of Arkansas around 1874, and John Mastin Turner was said tohave been on the farm with Nancy in 1874. I have John's death as 1865Tishomingo Co, MS. I am just questioning whether or not this was notinstead Nancy Hargus's father, since it only refers to him as the oldIndian Chief, he would have been around 90 years old. Something to thinkabout..."
