I trying to find out more info on a Reuben Moren. He lived in Hempstead County, Arkansas from 1830's thru 1880's. Somehow he was related to an Abner Moren of the same county since Reuben was an adminstrator of his estate. Also it appears that he was married to three different women between 1830's-1880's. Not sure what his first wife's name was, but she must have died in the 1840's. His second wife whom he married on May 2, 1851 was named Racheal Freeman. She was the daughter of William and Sarah Reed and had been married previously. At some point Racheal died. Then Reuben married a third time sometime in the 1870's to a women from Texas named Anna. Through all of these marriages he had lots and lots of children.
Reuben lived close by to the William Reed family of Saline Twp. Hempstead County. In the 1850 census of Hempstead County, Arkansas, William Reed had two people listed in his household named Madison Moren 14 and Prudence Moren 18. Also William Reed and Reuben Moren are listed together in the 1840 census and the 1850 Slave Schedule for Arkansas.
I am trying to determine if Madison Moren is the same M. S. Moren that was born 15 Nov 1837 and later lived in Saline County, Ark. M. S. Moren enlisted during the Civil War in Co. K, 6th Arkansas Cavalry, at Magnolia, Arkansas, June 21, 1862. He was detailed as a teamster on July 14, 1862; present to June 30, 1863. After the war he filed Arkansas pension application #10691 from Saline County, August 28, 1901. Also M. S. Moren married a Mary C. Dale? on 22 Sep 1859. M. S. Moren did have a son named Madison, so I think the M. stood for Madison as well. For a short time M. S. Moren lived in Louisana, but he came back to Arkansas and died on 25 June 1902
Also I want to get more info on Reuben Moren, who his parents were, who he was married to the 1st time, and what the names of there children were.
Any info will be very helpful, Thanks.
