I think Amos MORLAND may be the son of Amos MORELAND listed in the 1840 Indiana Census index. My Amos MORLAND, at the age of 10 years old, was listed in the 1850 Indiana Census in Martin Co., Brown Twp., under family #107, Richard R. MATHEWS. Richard had a wife, Rena, could this be the mother of Amos MORLAND? I have a copy of Amos' death certificate and his father is listed as Amos MORLAND and his mother is listed as being Phena FISH, no known birth place for either of them.
I am also interested in any information on Lavinia SALMON MORLAND, wife of Amos MORLAND and Alice GEORGE, wife of William Henry MORLAND.

Perry Polk's Family History
Adam (Ad) Sheffield MORELAND (Dec. 5, 1837 - Dec. 18, 1881) and Nancy Elizabeth (Betty) BEARD (Nov. 14, 1841 - 1909 or 1910) Married March 29, 1860. He was buried at Shiloh Lambertine about 6 miles north of Waldo, Arkansas. She was buried at Wortham, Texas. Don't have exact date of her death but would be on a marker there. To them were born 10 children.
Ad MORELAND and his wife, Betty, came to Arkansas from Oxford, Mississippi, when they had only 3 or 4 children. They came in a wagon built 3 tiers high and drawn by 2 oxen--bed in center and feed on top--a milk cow tied to the back.
They trudged along by day and camped by night, cooked bread and food in an iron oven over a camp fire, and drank milk and ate butter--which was carried in a vessel hanging under the wagon that day.
They crossed the Mississippi River by ferry, settled and homesteaded land north of Waldo, Arkansas--about Lambertine--near Stocton (a cross-road, post office later).
Ad S. MORELAND had one arm blown off about the elbow with gun powder when he was a boy, but he could do almost any kind of work other men could. He built a log house--rived boards to cover it--and split rails to fence his land. He staked out his oxen until he thought they were accustomed to their home. Then he turned them loose. One day one failed to come home, and he never could find him. He wrote to the ferry man on the Mississippi River asking if he had seen the ox. The man answered--the ox walked up and down the bank until he felt sorry for him and carried him over. The last he saw of him was going East (back home to Oxford).
Don't have any history of Ad's parents, but he had two brothers (Robert and Frank) who came and settled near him (Waldo). It has been handed down through the generations that the three MORELAND brothers (Adam, Robert, and Frank) came to America from Ireland in a handmade skiff when they were young men.
1. Robert MORELAND married Mollisa HEATH. They had 5 children: Ambrose, Lula, Leon, Ida, and Ada. Mollisa (Robert's wife) was the aunt of Mrs. Ethel FINCHER of Waldo.
Ambrose married Carry ARNOLD. (Don't know how many children.) One daughter, Lula Mae married Dug LUNSFORD (dead) and lives about 1 mile south of Minden, Louisiana (now 1967). She has several children living.
Frank MORELAND married Emma REEVES. They had three children: Conway (died young), Frank, Jr. and Emma.
Frank, Jr. married May PARKER. They had five children: Ruth, Emma Lee, Parker, Paul, Mary. They lived in Waldo, Arkansas.
Emma married Jimmy Joe COOK. No children.
Ad MORELAND's wife's (Betty BEARD) parents lived in Oxford, Mississippi. No record of parent's name. Had two sisters. Loucresia (Cresa) BEARD, never married. Hap WOOTEN (older married sister) had three children: Bunion WOOTEN, Lena WOOTEN, and Joe (not sure that was his name).
Etta Silvertooth found the above article at the Family History Center (on microfilm) in Columbia Co., Arkansas.
My great-great-grandfather, George B. DOBSON, married Malinda MORLAN (MORELAND) 6 May 1835 in the state of Indiana. Her date of birth is 1814. The I.G.I. indicates she was from Tennessee but I can't find her there. However, I did find Malinda MORELAND date of birth 1814 listed in North Carolina. Does anyone know if the two ladies are one?

All the following was taken from Civil War Pension claim file which I have: William H. MORELAND, born about 1837, Carter County, Tennessee. He was in Monroe/Roane? County (now Louden) by 1855 from which place he enlisted and served in the Union Army from 1862 to 1865 when he was honorably discharged. He applied for "invalid pension" from Louden County in 1879 which claim was successful. He died on the 20th of Jan., 1894 at Sweetwater, Monroe County, Tennessee. His widow, Mary M. (WARREN) MORELAND then made claim for widow's pension and dependent son, Charles O. who was about 15 when his father died. At that time she lived on property owned by her brother, J.C. WARREN. It is believed that they had at least one older son named J.F. MORELAND, born about 1871. They may have had other children.
If this one is related to Wright MORELAND of Goochland Co., VA then he would probably be a great-grandson. At first I guessed that he might be a grandson of Thomas because of the Monroe County connection, but William H. was born in Carter County many years after Thomas had moved his family to Monroe County. Does anyone know if Thomas left a son in Carter County when he moved to Monroe County? If so, he would be a candidate for the father of William H.
Respond to Charles E. Moreland, 15508 Saranac Dr., Whittier, CA 90604
Note from Nona: The 1830 census for Carter County, Tennessee has the following MORELANDs: John (son of Thomas?), Thomas (son of Thomas?), Wright (son of Charles) Charles (father of Wright), John (son of William), and Sarah (widow of William). Perhaps the above mentioned John or Thomas remained in Carter Co. and fathered William H. I'm hoping that Melba Hutchison can shed some light on this question.
