CAZORT, COZART, COZORT posted by Pauline Miller on Wednesday, August 5, 1998

Can someone help.please? My Ark. Index of 1860 census shows a R.H.COZART for Prairie Co.Ark. Can some one tell me who that is that shows up on the 1860 census and his family if he has one. He might just be in a houshold with someone else. I am hoping I can tie him in with a Soloman COZART and family that were in Lonoke Co. later and it is said in family stories that Soloman went to Ark. close to Des Arc, Ark. to be with a cousin ?

CAMPBELL, HALL, KELTNER, NEIL posted by Kristi Sar on Wednesday, August 5, 1998

I am looking for any information on ancestors or descendants of William Bill HALL, Sr. b. 1858. His wife was Mary Artilla (unsure of maiden name) b. 1865.

They had a total of eight children, Lawrence, Dena Minnie (married KELTNER), Thomas Jefferson, Bessie (married NEIL), Eunice (married CAMPBELL), Willie Ethel, Erving, and William Bill, Jr. All of the children have died now, but I believe many of them lived in or near Prairie Co. most of their lives. William Sr. also had a brother born two years later, first initial of L. (I don't have the whole name). L. had several children including Birdie, Myrtle, and Benjamin. There were more, but I could not read their names. If anyone has ANY info on ANY of these people, it would be a great help. Thanks!
