Lookin for any information on Milton Scott and Selah Thacker Scott, David Fly And Martha McCarter Younger Fly, Elisha Kirkman Fly and Isabell Jane (Tibbie) Scott Fly, and/or Albert Louis Philips and Nancy Amanda Bell Fly Philips.
The story is that the Milton Scott Family had to leave Yaloabusha County, MS in a hurry and during the night because of the shooting of a black carpet bagger official. They met up with the Fly Family who had already moved on to Arkansas. From there the family moved on to Texas. Possibly the Red River County area. If anyone has heard this story or has any info, please let me know. I would really like to trace their tract from MS through Arkasas into Texas. This was after 1860 as they are listed on Yalobusha Cny Census and in 1874 are already in Texas. Collin county in 1880 and Red River cnty in 1900. Appreciate any help. thanks, Dottie in NC
