On the 1910 Scott Co., AR census for Lewis Township, Town of Mansfield, there is listed my
relative, Reese TRAVIS. His wife was Nancy Jane (TERRY) TRAVIS and they had been married 15
years. Their daughter Dora M. or Della M. is listed as 10 years old. The census states he was
a photographer and "owned his own business." Would anyone have any knowledge of this photography
shop or have any photos that state they were taken by Reese TRAVIS? Any other information or
family out there? Reese TRAVIS was listed on this census record as 39 years of age, born in
Tennessee of parents both born in Tennessee. His wife Nancy J. was 37, born in Arkansas. Her
father was listed as born in Arkansas and her mother in Ohio.

I'm looking for information on families who were listed in the 1880 Federal Census for Scott
County, Arkansas and in later census records. The heads of household were: Daniel, Dodson D.
(married Mandy, maiden name unknown) and James J. STAMPS. Their migrations were VA, SC, IL, TN,
MO, AR, OK. One family had lived in TX before AR. The online information I have found placed
these families in Lafayette Township, Scott County, Arkansas in the 1880 census. Our grandfather,
Ben F. STAMPS may have been born at Bates in Scott County. He was born in 1882, a son of Dodson D. and Amanda
Stamps. Amanda died in 1905 and is buried at Gipson Cemetery at Bates. Does anyone know of these
families? Are there any pictures of them?

Mrs. Louisa McCaleb homesteaded 40 acres in Section 35, Township 3 North, Range 32 West on
1 July 1875. This land is located in Lafayette Township of Scott County. She was listed in this
record as the widow of Hansel McCaleb. Hansel and Louisa are listed as McCalip on the 1860 Scott
County census in Tumlinson Township with four children. By 1870 Hansel had evidently died and Louisa
is listed in Lafayette Township with two of her children. The 1880 Scott County census of Lafayette
Township lists Louisa at age 68, a widow, living with her son Fernando McCaleb, age 27 and single.
In the mid 1880s some of Louisa's children moved across the state line into the Choctaw Nation. I
would like to hear from anyone researching this family. Thank you.

I am looking for my great grandmother, Mary Ann BRAZELL or possibly BRAZIL. My grandfather, Robert
Marion CLINE, was born in Pope County Arkansas, and lived in Scott County Arkansas in the 1880 census.
According to family records, he married Mary Ann BRAZELL in 1881. She died when my grandmother was very
young, but all records indicate that she was born in Texas around 1867 and died in Idabel, Oklahoma,
around 1919. Family members also say that she was part or full Choctaw or Cherokee descent. I found a
William BRAZIL in the Federal land records in 1879, but have not been able to find him in the 1880
census, so that I could see family members in his household. My grandparents show up in 1884 in Little
River Arkansas, during the birth of their first living son Walter L. CLINE. I am looking for Mary Ann
BRAZELL's parents and siblings. During their entire marriage, they lived around the Arkansas, Texas,
and Oklahoma border. Some of their children show being born in Little River, Arkansas, some in LaMarr,
Texas, and my grandmother in McCurtain County, Valliant City, Oklahoma. There is also the possibility
that they lived on or near an Indian mission, or that Mary Ann came from an Indian mission. Robert
Marion CLINE is thought to have been in trouble with the law around 1880 or 1881 and is said to have
left the area and traveled to Texas or Indian Territory until his legal troubles were forgotten. Robert
Marion Cline's brother(Alexander Haywood CLINE) was a Methodist Missionary to the Indians in the Oklahoma
Territory for fifty years, he is known to have been in Hooks, Texas in 1879 and Fannin County, Texas in
1910. Any information on Mary Ann BRAZELL or William Brazil in Scott County, Arkansas, will be greatly appreciated.

two girls, Nara and Lens ROBINSON. Elisha married one of the EARP girls at Pine Log, Arkansas and had 5 six

I am looking for my great grandparents graves. Their names were Lewis B. and Martha Jane
LIGHTFOOT. They lived around Boles in 1878 to 1881 or so. Both went there with five children
and died there. Family legend says my grandfather put a headstone on their graves in the
1920's or 30's. This headstone was a cement block with their names put down into them somehow
with wire. We have looked for those graves for forty years. If anyone has seen graves that
look anything like this on a mountain around Boles, I would appreciate the information.

I am trying to collect information on Andrew SCOTT'S ancestors. Of course, Andrew is
Scott County's namesake. More specifically, I am trying to find out all I can about
the lives of Andrew's parents, Andrew, Sr. and Elizabeth. Also, I am trying to find out
anything I can about Andrew SCOTT'S other ancestors dating back to Indiana, Pennsylvania
and Virginia. I also understand Andrew has established ties back to Scotland. What is the
documentation for this? I'd be happy to visit Scott County, if necessary, for more info
on Mr. SCOTT. Or is there someone in the county I can hire who may be able to get access
to this information...if it is available?
