mother and father Georgia 1890s Arkansas many family members

The majority of my family seem to have migrated from Georgia to Arkansas. In my research and from many stories, I have found that on both sides of my family there were 10 peripheral families that stayed together and intermarried, because of their close knitted relationships that maintain to this day, I have been able to research both families back to the early 1800's.
