My 3rd Gr. Grandparents were John S. Hern m. 13 Jan. 1850 in Pope Co., AR to Cynthia Orilla Beavert. John was b. c. 1827 in TN and Cynthia was b. c. 1830 in TN. I think John was the son of Abner and Martha Hearn, is Abner the son of Howell Hearne? John and Cynthia died before the 1870 census. They had the following children:
1. Martha C. b. 1857 m. ? Slides
2. Nancy Jane b. 1862 AR m. William Brown
3. Minnie m. ? Wilson
4. John B.
5. William A.
7. Sarah Mahaley b. 1865
My 2nd Gr. Grandparents were Sarah Mahaley Hern b. 14 Apr. 1865 AR d. 9 Nov. 1955 Duncan, Stephens Co, OK m. 7 Jul 1891 (from marriage license) in Cleveland, Van Buren Co, AR William James Tyler b. 15 Jul 1872 AR d. 13 Feb. 1949 OK. Both bur. at New Fairlawn Cemetery in Comanche, OK (no headstones at this time).
I get Sarah's maiden name from her funeral records and death cert. #016891, no parents names listed except father's surname of Hern. William and Sarah moved to the Comanche area because she had sisters that lived there.
