African American Gatewood Family

Looking for other descendants of Green and Laura Gatewood. Both born in Georgia; he around 1846 and she around 1854. They had five children; John, Amos, Edward, Delia (sp?) and Mayhew, my grandfather, who was born in May of 1880. All were born in Marianna, Arkansas. Mayhew eventually married Ella (Currant or Current) Jackson and they had 15 children, between Marianna, Arkansas, Poplar Bluff, Missouri and Youngstown, Ohio. Family info says that Mayhew and Ella were members of St. Peter's Rock or Peter's Rock Church in Marianna. My grandfather lost contact with his sibs and his children, which includes my father, don't know anything about their relatives. If you are from the area or know of the Gatewoods, please e-mail me. It has been said that my great grandfather, Green, was a sharecropper; plantation owner's name is unknown. I do know that grandpa's brother, Amos, was married to a woman named Cora. Any little guess or tidbit will be greatly appreciated. I have been trying to connect our family for years. Please, please help me complete our family tree. Thanks a bunch!! Psummers@cradle.org
