bullet  General Notes:

Betty Lou Brown (Cossey) said that she was told that after Mattie and Eunice
died, Elizabeth wanted to move away from Conehatta to help forget. Ed Milton
and Elizabeth moved to Louisiana for a couple of years and then to Damascus,
Arkansas.

Since Malcolm was born in February of 1889 in Conehatta and Emily was born in
December of 1891 in Damascus, they must have moved to Louisiana in about 1889
or 1890.
