(c)THE HISTORIC GENEALOGICAL SOCIETY
OF MARION COUNTY ARKANSAS
Contributions to this HISTORY OF MARION COUNTY were innumerable. Many gave freely of their time, ability and knowledge. Without their help this undertaking would have been much more difficult, if not impossible.
We are indebted particularly to Mrs. Faye Briggs, who gave her wholehearted support in the type of this manuscript.
We are deeply grateful to Elmo Ingenthron, author of the Land of Taney, who gave unselfishly material and knowledge of the White River Valley.
We offer a special thanks to Randy Hopper for his drawings of the School and Postal Maps; to Debbie Rawlings for her sign printing; to Forest Wood, Curtis Davis and Jim Gaston for the copying of photographs; and to the Marion County Library Board for their cooperation.
To Mr. George Horner, Mrs. Eunice Gilbert, Mrs. Ina Duren, Mrs. Lena Nowlin, Mrs. Josie Bullin and Mrs. Mae Patterson, we say "THANK YOU" for giving so freely of your knowledge about Marion County in the past.
To the Mt Echo, Harrison Daily Times and the Baxter Bulletin, we owe our gratitude for the publicity.
We want to thank Mr. John Ferguson, State Historian, and the Baxter County Historical Society for their help and encouragement.
Last but not least, we say "THANK YOU" to Judge Rose and the Marion County Quorum Court and the Arkansas Bicentennial Committee for the financial help given. Without this, the undertaking of this book would have been impossible.
