Note N601 Birth and Parentage Issues

BIRTH-DEATH: A REMINISCENT HISTORY OF THE OZARK REIGON, Chicago, Goodspeed Brothers, Pub. 1894, Reprinted by So., Historical Press, Easley, SC., held at Cook Memorial Library, Libertville, IL.

NOTE: If his son Drury was born btn 1780-1790, then he was born c. 1760-1770.

NOTE: Letter from Ted Brooke to Nancie Todd Weber states that researcher,Mrs. Selleck, who worked on the Drury line for years, made an incorrect assumption that Drury was a son of Drury Christian who was an illegitimate child of John Christian & Elizabeth Upshaw. It states that Drury is circumstantially the son of Leroy & Elizabeth Bradley Upshaw md Bedford Co, VA 1769.

Comment by Fuller-5853 20:16, 9 January 2020 (UTC): Drury was the eleventh child born about 1786. His father, Captain Leroy, estimated birth would be about 1750, as currently stated.

Note N602 Heir Issues

The heir is a direct descendant of this child

Note N603 Direct Line Issues

This is not a direct Line.

Comment by Fuller-5853 20:16, 9 January 2020 (UTC): Too vague to be useful.

Their birthdates are approx 1810 & 1817 respectively. Allen was buried in Coushatta, LA (he died after 1900). Their child, Louisiana Upshaw, b. 1845 Winn Parish, LA, was 1st wife to Thomas William Howell b. 26 Nov 1834, Emmanuel, GA, d. 27 Sep 1924 in Shreveport, LA. She died in childbirth-the child was stillborn. their daughter, Alice Matilda Howell, was 2nd wife to Lawrence Augustus Stahl, b. 1856 in Old Sparta, Bienville, LA d 26 Nov 1897 in Coushatta, LA. They were md 7 May 1885. She was born 12 Dec 1864in Winn Parish, LA and d 30 Apr 1949 in Shreveport, LA (buried in Coushatta.). Their daughter, Ruby Stahl, is my grandmother.

This profile is hard to follow. The only source identified is the Find A Grave memorial which is suspect (doesn't have a tombstone photo or sources). Shows weird notes like Note N602 = The heir is a direct descendant of this = The heir is a direct descendant of this child

Note N603 = This is not a direct Line. = This is not a direct Line.

Thanks.
