I'm Victoria Harris and Peter Upshaw would be my maternal 4th great grandfather. My info states that he was b. 1884-94, md. 16Jan1817 in TN to Jinsey "Jenny" Fields and d. 18JUL1841 in Natchitoches, LA.They had a daughter Mary (?) Upshaw who married Allen Jones Upshaw (?) 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.26Nov1834, Emmanuel, GA, d. 27Sep1924 in Shreveport, LA. She died inchildbirth- the child was stillborn. Their Daughter, Alice Matilda Howell, was 2nd wife to Lawrence Augustus Stahl, b.1856 in Old Sparta, Bienville, LA d. 26NOV1897 in Coushatta, LA. They were md. 7MAY1885. Shewas born 12DEC1864 in Winn Parish, LA & d. 30APR1949 in Shreveport, LA (buried in Coushatta.) Their daughter, Ruby Stahl, is my grandmother. I'm not sure which of these dates are proven as this is my mother's research.
