Josiah Flyn LITTLE
Rebecca STROUD
Husband:  Josiah Flyn LITTLE
Birth:  1803/4 or 19 Oct 1800, Washington Co., TN
Death:  10 Jun 1872, Clark Co., AR
Occupation:  farmer

I have found no primary record giving Josiah middle name, "Flyn," but virtually all secondary sources do so.

Marriage:  27 Oct 1847, Clark Co., AR
Wife:  Rebecca STROUD
Birth:  1809/10, Louisiana Territory [now Clark Co., AR]
Death:  17 Feb 1876, Hollywood, Clark Co., AR
Occupation:  homemaker
Other Spouse:  m1. 2 Jun 1836, Clark Co., AR, Thomas H. PROCTOR
Father:  Adam STROUD II
Mother:  Mary EASLEY

Secondary sources almost universally have Rebecca born in 1818 or 1819, but that year is not in agreement with any of her census records or her parents' census records.

John CHANDLER shows up here in the 1850 census and in the 1860 census with Rebecca's brother, Archnard H. STROUD, and appears to be the little boy living with Rebecca and her parents in the 1840 census.  If he's Rebecca's son, why is he surnamed CHANDLER?
