I invite you to enter a query for your Sevier County ancestors but because of our limited space, please limit it to only Sevier County ancestors. If you are not sure what part of Arkansas your relative was born, died, or resided in, might I suggest checking the Arkansas Federal Census Index, ususally located at you local library or Historical Society or Genealogical Society, for the time frames before and after the one you think they would be in. Enter your query information exactly as you want it to appear including the name of the county in case of misdirection with one exception, please enter the surnames in capital letters. Also it would be helpful if in your subject box you type "Sevier Co., Ar." so that it is not overlooked or deleted by mistake. Every effort will be made to post your query as soon as possible.

Kate Burton

I am not sure if Chester Lee McKee was from Sevier County, but according to his death certificate from Texas, he died in the VA hospital and was removed to Horatio, Arkansas and buried in the "Old Center Cemetery" on September 21/22, 1976. Funeral director's signature was typed in as "Nalley-Pickle"; I can not read the written signature. His son and grandchildren have been searching for him for about 30 years. I am his granddaughter and would like to find out about him. Thanks for your kind help.

Paul A Kroll

I am doing some research for a friend of mine. I have a letter dated January 23rd, 1974. It was written by Al Ayers and talks about his parents and grandparents. I the letter he states that, "Sally married my grandfather's father, she was put into the first grave at the Fairview Cemetery out east of Dequeen, Ark." Her name was Sally Davis and she married a man by the name of Ayers. So she would have been buried as Sally Ayers between 1856-1861 I estimating. Do you have any information on her?

I'm researching the Jones family of Sevier County in the Civil War. So far, for sure, here is what I have; Samuel W. Jones, prvt, enlisted June 1 1862 in the 24th AR Infantry, Company A. Portlocks Regiment at Center Point AR. He was killed sometime during the battle of Arkansas Post in Jan 1863. John William Jones, prvt, enlisted March 1 1862 in the 24th AR infantry, Company A, at Center Point AR. On Feb 8 1863, John was transfered to Hardy's AR Regiment Company H. John was on the Feb 1864 muster roll (last one on file) Another brother who moved from Sevier Co. to Collin Co. Texas just before the civil war. Granville A Jones, prvt, enlisted July 1863 in the 15th infantry brigade, Company D of Capt Edward Chambers Texas State Troops

Nelson Hodges

I am looking for information on the Keadle's in Sevier Co., AR. My GGrandfather was Napoleon Jennings Keadle. His birth name was actually Duniphan. His parents and an aunt and uncle that lived next door (in Upshur Co., TX) were killed in a Comanche raid (scalped). He was sent to a Jurelia Elizabeth Keadle in Sevier County, AR (around the DeQueen, AR area). His brothers were sent to Duniphans in the Joplin. MO. area. I suspect that N.J. was sent to a maternal grandmother to raise?? Hence the Keadle connection. I do not have any proof of that, just gut feel. He is listed in the 1880 census in AR as living with Jurelia E. Keadle (he was 12 at the time) and was still shown as Duniphan. He later took on the Keadle family name, apparently being raised by her. My Grandmother (his daughter) was actually named after her; also Jurelia Elizabeth Keadle - then married into Taylor family. I do not have much info on the Keadles and would like to know, myself, where Jurelia Elizabeth fits in to the Keadle family in Arkansas. That might also give me a clue as to who Napoleon Jennings' mother might have been. If you have any information on J.E. Keadle, who her husband was, a church affiliation, children of hers, when she moved to Sevier Co., or anything would be greatly appreciated.


Oakley, Lockeby, Pope, Jones, Britt I am seeking information about ancestors (and their spouses) who lived at various times, because of county boundary realignment, in Howard, Hempstead or Sevier counties, particularly Oakley of Saline (Sevier County circa 1860) and Oakley and Lockeby of Mine Creek Twp.

Bridgette Crabtree-Guild

I am gathering information about my family history. I am currently working on the Crabtree and Dixson/Dickson branchs of the family, and I wonder if you could give me any information about them. In particular, I am looking for any county records that might be available. My grandfather's name was Henry (Harry) Eagle Crabtree and my grandmother was Lillie Pearl Dixson/Dickson (Crabtree). I know the family was in Seiver county at least until the mid 1940's because my uncle Jesse was born in Foreman, Seiver Co.

Laura Cochrane

I'm looking for information on a few people: Martha Velzora Smith (b. 1/8/1848) and Thomas Jefferson Evans (b. 11/4/1852) were married to each other in Sevier County on 11/15/1874. (By census she's listed as Martha V, but other alternatives for the middle name are Bell Zora or Belzora. She was known to others as "Marthy Bell". I have tons of info on his family and their descendants but nothing on hers. I'm specifically looking for record of her parents names. Also from a different part of the family: William B. Harper b. about 1810 married to a woman named Catherine or a variation thereof. According to family stories he moved from MO to AR to avoid prosecution for killing a man. Their son was William Marion Harper born in DeQueen Arkasas 8/25/1841. This son William M died when his team ran away pulling the wagon he was in, throwing him out. This happened on 12/29/1905.
