J. W. Acord
Date: 1853
J. W. Acord is the possessor of 160 acres of very good land, and, although this farm is rather small, it is admirably tilled, and yields a larger annual income than many larger and more pretentious farms. He was born in Roane County, Tenn., in 1853, to C. C. and A. E. (Murray) Acord, who were also native Tennesseeans. In 1857 they determined to seek ?fresh fields and pastures new,? and accordingly settled in Johnson County, Ark., where the father passed from life on October 25, 1873, his widow following him to his long home on December 9, 1882. In this county J. W. Acord was brought up to a farm life, and although he did not receive much schooling in his youth, he acquired sufficient knowledge to transact, in a perfectly capable manner, the business affairs of life. In the month of January, 1873, be started out to make his own way in the world, and as he was thoroughly familiar with farming, he has made that his chief calling with the above-mentioned results. His marriage, which occurred on January 16, 1873, was to Miss Rebecca J. Bench, whose parents were David and Martha (Prim) Bench, and to her union with Mr. Acord the following named children have been born: W. H., Viola A., John F., Martha A., J. M. and Rachel. Daniel C. and Eliza J. were drowned in Mulberry Creek, in the northern part of Johnson County, in the month of February, 1886. Mr. Acord was bailiff of Mulberry Township from 1878 until 1882, and in his political views he has always been a stanch Democrat, at all times supporting the men and measures of his party. He has always been a hard worker, and although he is doing well at present has met with a good many misfortunes, sufficient to discourage a less determined man. The loss of his two children was a severe blow to himself and wife, from the effects of which they can not recover.
