    I went to

    and used Whiteside as a surname. I got this many hits for this state as birthplace:

    AR - 191

    OK - 66

    TX - 177


    In 1910 this looks like them in Benton, Fulton, AR:

    Marion Whitesides, 58, head, Mo

    Annie Whitesides, 52, wife, Mo

    Josie Whitesides, 23, dau, Ark

    Calvin Whitesides, 21, son, Ark

    Herald Whitesides, 16, son, Ark

    Marion Whitesides, 12, son, Ark

    Sarah J Whitesides, 87, mother, Tenn

    In 1910 Annis is hiding out under her middle name. They are playing fast and loose with their birth years in one of these or the other. Josie is probably shading the truth by two years in 1910 because she is an old maid.

    Mammoth Spring, Fulton, Arkansas

    Marion Whitesides 50

    Margaret A Whitesides 46

    Jackson F Whitesides 23

    Josie Whitesides 15

    Minnie Whitesides 13

    Calvin Whitesides 10

    Earl Whitesides 5

    Your dad may have been hiding or his middle name may be Earl or the "C" in "Carl" may look like an "E" to the indexer.


    Here they are in 1880:


    Name Relation Marital Status Gender Race Age Birthplace Occupation Father's Birthplace Mother's Birthplace

    Marom WHITESIDS Self M Male W 29 AR Farmer IN TN

    Annis WHITESIDS Wife M Female W 24 MO Housekeeping TN ---

    Emley J. WHITESIDS Dau S Female W 7 AR AR MO

    Jackson F. WHITESIDS Son S Male W 4 AR AR MO

    Martha L. WHITESIDS Dau S Female W 3 AR AR MO

    Well I Know of a William Whiteside that lived in Dunklin Co, MO in the 1880-1900s. He married Sarah Bell.

    I think they divorced He had a son William and daughter Della Whiteside Rice.

    This is just into MO /AR border area.
