211 SAMUEL (8) BILLINGSLEY (John 7, Samuel 6, James 5, William 4, William 3, John 2, Francis 1.) Born 3 October Bledsoe County, Tennessee. He married prior to 1830 a Miss Anderson, born Tennessee circa 1809. A statement by Andrew C. Myers of Tennessee in 1930 says: "Sam married a society woman who loved to go to dances and such like, Sam did not approve of this; he moved West in the early 1840's, and I do not think he carried her with him.

He migrated to Arkansas about 1841-42 and located in Clark County and engaged in farming. In 1850 he is listed with a wife named Nancy born in Kentucky in 1812, from the differences in the ages of the 3d and 4th child she is probably his 2d wife.

They disappear from this County before 1860, they may have been deceased or may have returned to Tennessee. While three grand sons have been located they do not appear to know anything of their grandparents names or where they resided.
