I am primarily researching the CRAYTON, MILLETT, MULKEY, and WELLS and collateral family surnames of all ethnicities.

My research hot list includes any information on the following ancestors:

1) Birthplace and siblings of our genealogical patriach, Monroe Mulkey, born in 1844 in Arkansas. Monroe is possibly listed as a 16 year old slave belonging to Henry C. Cheatham, Sr. on the 1860 Hempstead County, Arkansas Slave Census. Monroe lived in Texas from at least 1867 until his death about 1920. I am also trying to make a connection between the MULKEY and HARKLISS family. It is a possibility that Albert Harkliss is Monroe's half brother (Each chose a different surname upon emancipation).

2) Henry MULKEY was born in Terrebonne County, Louisiana about 1851. On 29 August 1863, 15 year old Henry MULKEY volunteered to serve in the Union Army during the civil war. He became a bugler and a drummer in the 87th, Company H, U.S. Colored Infantry. He was later transferred to the 55th Massachusettes, Company K, USCT and served until his honoable discharge in 1866 at Vicksburg, Mississippi. Henry married Henrietta Nelson CHEW October 29, 1883 and lived in or near Bolivar County, Mississippi until his death 2 October 1908. Henry was buried on the Asia Plantation, Bolivar County, Mississippi.

3) Phyllis STEGER (STEEGER or STIGAW), a full-blood Cherokee Native American, my maternal great-grandmother, and the mother of my maternal grandfather James MILLETT. It is believed that James Millett, Reuben Millett, and Willis Millett were all sons of Phyllis and the Millet surname was taken because all three sons were born on the Millett Plantation in Tennessee.

In addition, I am researching the ALLEN, CONLEY, CURTIS, and KILGORE surnames in Texas, Arkansas, and Mississippi.

You will be reimbursed for any expenses you incur sending information to me.
