Tracking down a Caleb Josiah James Shipp, aka JJ Shipp, having seen differing names on various census sheets and a letter. He would be my third great grandfather. Listed as the father of my great grand mother Leta Martha Shipp, aka Mattie L., in Hot Springs County, AR 1880 census. Marriage in Hot Springs County in 1885 to Mattie Easley. Died in Texarkana in 1895. Family letter indicates he graduated from U of Mississippi (in 1859) and taught school in Malvern, Arkansas. Found a Caleb Josiah James Shipp marrying Molly Pittard in 1869,location unknown. Hot Spring County 1880 Census records list his wife as Sarah. She would be my grandmother's mother. I am seeking any and all information on him or her. This has been my brick wall for two years! Thank you for your help.
