Mattie and maybe her older sister Mary Wyatt were orphaned or just given away to an older couple named Davis. This was between 1882 and 1899.  I want to know who their parents were and did they have other siblings.  They both were born in Greenbrier, Faulkner County, Mary in 1879 and Mattie in 1882. When Mattie was 12 yrs old both Davis' died and Mattier went to live at Aunt Sally's Boading House in Little Rock.  There she met Wiliam Rufus Brown and later married him and had 5 children by him.

There is a Rootsweb WorldConnect Project with info about Mattie, it is for the Sunblad/Sunblade/Kyseth/Brown families. I can't get the thing to cut and paste and I have never mastered the art of linking up in a message on WT.  It said that Mattie's mother was Mary Jane Smith; she died around 1884.   Mattie and her sister were given to a couple with the last name of Davis.  The girls' father was still alive but where he went is unknown.  A disputed rumor, according to the web page is that he went to England.  The page affirms your statement that Mattie went to live at Aunt Sally's in Little Rock when she was about 12.
