Thank you, Wayne, for your answer, however, I don't recognize either last names as part of my family.  How is the connection to Rebecca Belle Graham with the married name of Johnson.  She lived 1857-1930.  Thank you!

The 1860 Census for Arkansas shows three Rebecca Grahams but only one is the right age (shown as 1/12, meaning not yet a year old).  See if this fits with your knowledge of Rebecca:

Name: Rebecca Graham
Age: 1/12
Birth Year: abt 1860
Gender: Female
Race: White
Birth Place: Missouri
Home in 1860: Grand River, Daviess, Missouri
Post Office: Gallatin
Family Number: 48
Value of real estate: View image
Household Members:
Name Age
Alfred Graham 22
Martha Graham 21
Rebecca Graham 1/12

Year: 1860; Census Place: Grand River, Daviess, Missouri; Roll: M653_617; Page: 355; Image: 359; Family History Library Film: 803617

Thank you so much, Janine.   I don't think that is the right one.  I surely wish it were!  :)  

Grandmother went by Belle.  Her father was Elija and both her parents were born in Tennessee.  She is reputed to have been born in Arkansas.  I have her death certificate and I have what I believe is Grandfather's military pension info.  Grandmother is not listed on any of the census that I have for her father.  I think her mother was Charlotte Casteel but I would like to have verification.

Thank you again for your help.
