8. 1870 census, Missouri (where?); Jackie Streett has a note that "he may have moved to Arkansas circa 1865 - where?); Henry H. Upshaw is not located in the 1870 Arkansas, Louisiana, Missouri or Texas census indexes.

17. Jackie Streett has a rather confusing note that "he lived in Springfield, Marshville Boone Co. Perry, Ark. He or Matilda is buried in Van Buren, Ark. (Fayetteville, Ark. around 1862 is also possible residence)."
