Hello Linda: I think the name you have Atkinson linked to Nancy Brown probably is misspelled--Actkinson as you can see there were several Actkinsons in Marion County, AR.

2. JOHN DAVID2 ACTKINSON (JOHN1) was born April 1836 in Tennessee, and died December 25, 1902 in Leadhill, Boone, Arkansas. He married SERENA BEARD Abt. 1868. She was born 1848 in Tennessee, and died 1900 in Leadhill, Boone, Arkansas.

Notes for JOHN DAVID ACTKINSON:

John David Actkinson was a Justice of the Peace in Marion County, Arkansas in the following years:
October 30, 1890 Crockett Township
October 31, 1892 Buffalo Township
October 31, 1894 Dodd City Township
Source: Justice of the Peace Roster, Marion County, Arkansas Courthouse Records.

John David Actkinson was buried in the Leadhill Cemetery with no marker. He was later moved when the Buffalo Shoals Reservoir was built in the early 1950's. (Info from Turnbow's Ozark Frontier Stories, Vol. 1, page 457.)

The graves in the Leadhill Cemetery were relocated to the Milum Cemetery north of the town of Leadhill. Milum Cemetery was an existing cemetery a new addition was built north of the existing cemetery. This was the largest cemetery moved during the Buffalo Shoals Reservoir Project.

Marion County, Arkansas Deed Book "A" , page 634 shows John D. Actkinson and wife granting property to S. B. Allen.

Marion County, Arkansas List of Grand Jurors for August Term 1891, Page 234 shows on of the jurors to be J.D. Actkinson.

My wife is a descendant of John David Actkinson from Marion County. If you could show a link to Nancy Brown please email me.
