I wish to correpspond with descendants of Edward (b c 1833 KY) and Sarah M. (b c 1846 OH) SHADD. I think Sarah's maiden name was SHIRLEY and that she was a sister of my ancestor, Samantha Elizabeth SHIRLEY GOOSMAN. Edward and Sarah's known children are Lilla Cora (b 1870, md Sam NELSON), Jess A. (b 1871 (moved to Seattle, Wash.), Corialis (b 1874), Charles H. (b 1875), William F. (b 1877) and Silas Leroy (b 1879). They were in Scott Co., Ark., by 1893. They were in Carroll Co., Ark., in 1880 and before that in Kansas.

I am researching the surnames of FRY and SMITH in Scott County. Amanda SMITH married Joseph Baxter FRY in 1894. In 1912, within a two month span, Amanda and two of her children, Carodine and Mary, died. Would like to know the cause of death. Was there a major illness in the community at the time? Any help is sincerely appreciated.

He was married to Lucretia GOOLSBY. Per 1880 Scott Co, AR census records he was born in Tennessee as were his parents but I have no other background on him. Any other info would be appreciated.

Seeking info on Florence Melissa BAGWELL, our great grandmother, who has not been found on a census. She was born in Arkansas about 1871 and was supposed to be an orphan. She had a sister named "Lee." We have been told she could have been living with a family by the name of THOMAS. She was living in Tomlinson Township in 1885 when she married D.E. HATCHETT at age 14 in the M.E. Church, South. Florence and her sister might have been living with separate families.

Does anyone have Scott County Lumber Industry records from the early 1900s? I am looking for employment records or any other mention of my great-great Grandfather, C.W. NEFF. I am trying to pin down a more specific date of when he arrived in the county, and exactly where he might have lived. I know his family shows up in the 1900 census in Buffalo township in MO, but I think they moved into Scott County, AR soon after. I have posted several NEFF photos on the Scott County page, including one I labeled NEFF LOGGING CREW, so I know he had ties to the logging industry in the early 1900's. I would love to find documents to back that up further. Thanks for any help you can provide!
