I am looking for the parents of Rachel, who married Allen Tennison in Newton County, Arkansas around 1848.
Allen Tennison, born about 1824 in Indiana, was married to Rachel, born about 1826. I am not sure of her maiden name. On numerous family trees I have seen it listed as Estep, Eastep, Beff, and Labeff. Her place of birth is listed as Alabama, Arkansas, or Missouri.
I am curious to find a source for any of these names. I have only seen the names listed on family trees, but none have listed a source besides other trees.
Allen and Rachel lived in Newton County, Arkansas, and died between 1860-1870. A few have noted that Allen and Rachel were killed by Bushwackers during the Civil War, and are buried under "Horace Newton's Barn" in Newton County, but I have not found any source for that information.
I know a lot about Allen Tennison's family, but have not been able to figure out a source for Rachel's maiden name, or who her parents might have been.
