Married Edwin Daniel KENNEDY


  • For along time I did not know Nancy Isabel's maiden name.  In February2010 I got a message from Jerry Grisham informing me that she was aHenderson.  Here is Jerry's initial note:  "Nancy Isabel Nolastnamelast name is Evans, daughter of James F. Evans and Sarah AnnHenderson. Sarah Ann was one of 9 brothers and sisters that came toArkansas County, AR in 1850. Nancy Isabell's grandson Holland marrieda relative Gladys Henderson and Virgil married a Henderson." --  JerryGrisham, email to Orville Boyd Jenkins, 13 February 2010  I laterfound a few more details about her parents and her siblings fromJerry's website.  See information on James F Evans.  Jerry had foundthe family in the censuses of 1860 through 1880.  In 1860 James Evansand his family are living in Maurice Township, not far form DeWitt,the southern county seat of Arkansas County, Arkansas.  This censusreports him born in Tennessee and his wife Sarah Henderson born inMississippi.  James F Evans 28 M W Farmer $800 Real Estate $300Personal Tennessee [abt 1832] Sarah M Evans 24 F W Housekeeping bMississippi [abt 1836] Margarett A Evans 6 F W b Arkansas [abt 1854]Nancy I Evans 4 F W b Arkansas [abt 1856]  In 1870, it appears thatIsabel's mother is the head of the household, and thus likely  widow.1870 Federal Census, Arkansas County, Arkansas, 27 June, CrockettTownship, PO Mount Adams, page 1, Hse/Fam #6 Evans, Sarah 30 F W $300Personal Estate b Mississippi Evans, Isabel 13 F W born ArkansasEvans, William 10 M W born Arkansas Evans, John 8 M W born ArkansasEvans, Mary 6 F W born Arkansas Evans, Amanda 3 F W born Arkansas  In1880, the census shows that Sarah moved her family to Bayou Metotownship of the same county.  This census reports Sarah's birth stateas Tennessee instead of Mississippi.  I favor Mississippi, since herbrother Joseph, two years younger than Sarah, was also reported bornin Mississippi.  Likewise the 1860 census.  This census also reportsSarah's husband was born in Tennessee, consistent with his report in1860.  1880 Federal Census, Arkansas County, Arkansas, 23 June, BayouMeto Township, District 5, page 37, Hse #392, Hse #477 Evans, Sarah WM 44 Keeping House TN TN TN [born abt 1836] Evans, Belle W F 22 Dau ARTN TN [born abt 1858] Evans, William W M 21 Son AR TN TN Evans, John WM 18 Son AR TN TN Evans, Mary W F 16 Dau AR TN TN Evans, Amanda W F 12Dau AR TN TN  In 1910, we find that Nancy Isabel Kennedy is a widow,her husband Edwin D having died since the 1900 census.  1910 FederalCensus, Arkansas County, Arkansas, 2 May, Bayou Meto Township,District 2, page 13A, Hse/Fam #2 Kennedy, Jerome F  Head M W  28Single AR AR AR Farmer Kennedy, Isabel Mother F W 54 Widow  5children/4 living AR AL MS Kennedy, Zula H Sister F W 16 AR AR ARHoughton, Walter Hired Man M W 19 AR AR AR Kennedy, Shannon A  Son M W20  AR AR AR Farm Laborer  In 1920, all the children have left thehousehold except for Jerome, who remains as Head of the household, andhis mother Nancy Isabel continues to stay with him.  Note that he islisted as Frank, giving us the middle name for which we had only theinitial in 1900 and 1910.  In this census, the enumerator spells hername in the French fashion, Isabelle.  1920 Federal Census, ArkansasCounty, Arkansas, 28 January, Garland Township, District 9, page 1A,Hse/Fam #4 Kennedy, Frank  Head M W  38 Single AR AR AR FarmerKennedy, Isabelle Mother F W 64 Widow  AR AL MS  In 1930, Jerome'stransition to frank is complete.  The original name Jerome is nowreduced to a middle initial J.  1930 Federal Census, Arkansas County,Arkansas, 25 April, Garland Township, District 7, page 1B, Hse/Fam #12Kennedy, Frank J Head M W  49 Single AR AR AR Farmer Kennedy, Nancy IMother F W 74 Widow  AR AL MS  I have found no further informationabout Nancy Isabel or Jerome Frank after the 1930 census.
