KERR, ROBERTS, WILLIAMS posted by Walter Lee Vaughan on Tuesday, January 6, 1998

Am searching for into on my GFather on mother's side. George Whitfield KERR b. Oct. 15, 1865 in NC & migrated to Miller Co., AR. Married Sarah (WILLIAMS) ROBERTS, in Miller Co., Ar. Dec 21, 1892. (She was b. Sep. 15, 1862). she was the widow of E. M. ROBERTS of Miller Co., AR. Family rumor is that E. M. ROBERTS was waylaid by a highway robber and killed Abt. 1890-92, and this left Sallie with children, so, George married her to give the children a home. If this be a true story, we thought there should be some kind of article in the newspaper covering Miller Co. Sallie's maiden name was WILLIAMS. She had a brother Guy WILLIAMS from Miller Co. also. Any help you could give on this query would be so greatly appreciated. Thanks and Happy New Year. Walt Vaughan WVchub El Paso, Tx.

ADCOCK, BARRINGTON posted by Randall & Saran Adcock on Saturday, January 17, 1998

Looking for info for following people. Dr. Stinson Edward ADCOCK (also called Dr. Eddy Adcock) 2nd wife was Dora Emma BARRINGTON. Dr. Stinson Edward Adcock had nine children. 5 with 1st wife (name may have been Cora Dodd?) and 4 children with his second wife Dora Emma Barrington. Dr. Stinson Edward Adcock's youngest son (named L.D Adcock or D.L Adcock) was born 1910. His first wife was Ruth Lott. They had one son Ted Lewis Adcock (b.1930,1931). L.D (D.L) Adcock then married Dora Irene Davis on 1 April 1937 and moved to Marysville AR where they had four known children (Ruth, Earle, Larry Don, Wanda Charlene) Can anyone add to this/verify? Really interested in Dr. Stinson Edward Adcock's parents and siblings? There is info on a Stinson Adcock b. 1834 and d. 1910. This means his last child L.D (D.L) Adcock would have been born a month before his death (age 76!). Thanks!
BRAZELL, PEACOCK posted by Duston Brooks on Sunday, January 25, 1998

I am searching for information on the BRAZELL family, who lived in Miller County in the latter 1800's. I am particularly interested in contacting a descendent of another branch of the family. Derrell B. and Mary BRAZELL moved there to the Bright Star and Sulphur Springs area of Miller County from Georgia between 1850 and 1860. They had five sons living there at the time. They also had four daughters. The sons' names were: Moses K. BRAZELL(born 1834); Derrell Hampton BRAZELL(born 1841); Elijah Valentine BRAZELL(born 1845); Isaac Pinkney BRAZELL(born 1847); and Wesley H. "Handy" BRAZELL(born 1849). Moses married a Lousiana or Susan PEACOCK there in 1859. After 1860, I have been unable to find them. Nor have I been able to find info. on Derrell Hampton or Handy. I have lots of information on Isaac and Elijah, but I really need to find someone, possibly a Brazell descendent, who can tell me what happened to Moses, Derrell Hampton, and Handy. Thanks.
