Query: I am RAY WEATHERS, son of RICHARD OMER WEATHERS, son of DAVIE RUSSIE WEATHERS, son of REASON & MELISSA CAROLINE HUNTER. She was the daughter of HARDY "HORSE" HUNTER & JANE CLARK. Jane Clark was a daughter of BENJAMIN CLARK, SR. My father and I are the only ones named above who did not live in Arkansas. My g-grandfather, REASON was married in DeQueen, AR, in 1850. My grandfather, DAVID RUSSIE, was, as far as we know, born in or near DeQueen. HARDY HUNTER, known as "HORSE" because of his horse trading activities throughout the South, was on the Armstrong Choctaw Indian roll of 1830-31. Census records have shown him in Arkansas. He later was in Red River County, Texas, where he married Jane Clark, one of the older daughters of Benjamin Clark, SR., and a sister of James Clark who founded the town of Clarksville. Now for my question: Do we have anybody in common? Regardless of your answer, a prompt reply would be appreciated. I noticed that you have a 76109 address in Ft. Worth. That would be somewhere in the vicinity of Southcliff Baptist Church, would it not. Our daughter lives on Seminary Drive, in Seminary Village, across from Southwestern Baptist Seminary where she is a graduate student as well as a teacher at the Seminary South Assembly of God Church's Harvest School (name was changed this semester). We lived in South Hills before moving here in 1975.

I am seeking information about my gg grandfather/mother William and Elizabeth Ann Driskill Holcomb. They were from Union Co., Lafayette Township. Wm. is on the l840 census and secured land patents in l842, 45. Elizabeth is listed as widow in l850. Is there a catagorized list of cemeteries and inhabitants for Union County and Clark Counties?

I am not, of course, asking you to research for me, merely point me in the correct direction. Cemeteries and obituaries seem logical places. Thank you.

Query: I can't figure out John H. Nelson. John Whitney Elkins had two sons with his second wife, Citty Fogle -- David and Ralph. But John H. Nelson is on a deed 1856 Clark County (along with previously handled deed for Ralph and David) having to do with relinquishing dower rights on property which had belonged to John Whitney Elkins. How did dower rights work in Arkansas?
