* Researchers, please note: Due to a misunderstanding of the location of the international boundary line between the United States and Spanish Texas, the area of Bowie County, Texas was once thought to be a part of "Old" Miller County, Arkansas (1820-1836). After "Old" Miller County, Arkansas ceased to exist in 1836, the records were moved to Lafayette County, Arkansas
