My wife's great grandfather was William D. House. I locate him in the Sabastian County, Arkansas in both 1880 and 1900. I have located a William D. House from Quachita County that filed land grants in 1859 and 1860. Could this be the same William D. House? The one that I am searching for was born in 1840 in either North Carolina or Alabama. Thanks, Jim

Looking for any information on Dr. John Andrew Jackson INABNETT b. Charleston, SC in 1834 and his wife Georgia Missouri (Remer) Inabnett b. Abt. 1839 in New Orleans, LA. Married September 1859 in Bossier Parish, LA. Lived in Bellevue, LA until late 1869 or early 1870. Moved to Hope, AR. Family is found in the 1870 and 1880 censuses. Dr. John Andrew Jackson Inabnett received his doctor's degree from Louisiana State Univerity in 1875. This family bought land in Garland City, Miller Co., AR in 1885. I know they had a daughter, Georgia M. Inabnett who was born in 1868 and died in 1886. She is buried in Wilson Cemetery (on private property) somewhere between Garland City and Genoa, AR. The family probably moved about the time they bought the property in Garland City, AR. We do not know when the wife, Georgia Missouri (Remer) Inabnett died but Dr. John Inabnett is listed as a physician and a widower in the 1900 Census for Miller County. Vicki Brehm
