has become a landmark.
Landscape of Fulton County is rugged and mountainous.

SEARCH THE FULTON COUNTY, ARKANSAS GENWEB SITE
Below you may search this entire website. I would like to suggest that you only search LAST or SURNAMES and not full names.
The reason for this is that many of the newspaper articles the editor/writer abbreviated the first names many times and if you search with a full name you will not have a productive search. An example is the first name George would have been written Geo., so if you searched for George Burkett, the search would miss Geo. Burkett. Also try other ways to spell the surname you are searching. Sometimes names were written with different spellings.
