Hi! Annie Savidge here. Thanks for your answers to my post. I have been without internet access for a very long time, and just now got your messages. I have been able to find out a lot about Laura over the years. She is indeed the sister of Clarinda Reagan, who married John Morgan Bradley. She had an older sister named Harriet Allie, born in January of 1877. Her other siblings were:
(all born in Smokemont, North Carolina, which is now Swain County, but was Jackson County, when the first three were born.)
*George W. March 1866, married Salina M. Huskey
*Clarinda P., Jan 1868, married John Morgan Bradley. Clarinda was already married when the family moved west. She was the only one of the children to stay in Swain County, to my knowledge.
*James Robert , born Jan 1870, died 1871
*Dialpha Jane , born Mar 1872
*Aaron, born Jun 1875, married Mary Ann Barnard in Boone County Arkansas
*Harriet Allie, born Jan 1877
*Luther T., born Jan 1880,
*Laura Bell , 3 April 1882, Died 12 OCT 1960, in Colton, San Bernardino, California. Laura is my great grandmother. She married Alfred Lorenzo Yates in Neosho, Newton, Missouri. They had 3 boys born in Newton, moved to Haskell, Muskogee, Oklahoma, where another son and a daughter were born, then they moved to Colton, CA where their youngest daughter was born. They spent the rest of their lives in Colton.
*Martha Ellen, born mar 1884, died 21 May 1978 in Haskell, Muskogee, Oklahoma. Martha married Headright Moore.
*Julie A. Reagan, October 1885
*John Reagan, April 1888
*Manuel Baxter Reagan, mar 1890. Laura gave us this brother’s name as “Baxter”, however, the 1900 census records him as Manuel B.
On the 1900 census, Harriet reported that she had borne 12 children, 10 of which were still living. I know that James Robert was one of the deceased children. Dialpha Jane and Harriet Allie are the only other children not accounted for on the 1900 census (except Laura, who did not appear with the family on that census), so I am assuming that one of them was the other that died young. George and Aaron are living with their families in Newtonia, just a few miles from Neosho, where the rest of the family was living.
I have quite a bit more information that I am willing to share. I am working on a website on the Reagan family, but am not quite ready to post it yet. I am going through my records, search for typos, etc. before doing so. If you would like to share information, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
