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.

I believe my Ancestor John Young died and was buried in Sevier County AR before 1900. The 1900 census lists his wife Rhode Young living with a daughter Nancy E. McCracken in Indian Territory but in 1910 is back in AR living with son George Napoleon Young and listed as widowed. They were originally from Catahoula Parish, LA. My GG-Grandfather married in Sevier County in 1906, He was George Napoleon Young m. Annie Lee Welch. So the family moved to Arkansas between 1880 and 1900. I'd like to find death records for John Young.

Mike Allen

I am looking for information on Joseph Allen, born 4 Jun 1802 in Giles Co., Tennessee and died in Sevier Co., about 1875. He was married to Rhoda Aldridge Allen who died about 1857 in Bossier Parish Louisiana. He might have remarried sometime after 1860, but another wife was not listed in the 1860 U S Census. I have just obtained information that his succession might appear in Probate Book 14, Page 271 for Sevier, Arkansas. Any information on Joseph would greatly be appreciated. Rhoda and Joseph had children, William, Mary Ann “Polly” Allen, James, Elizabeth and Patience.

Seeking information on what happened to Michael M Higgins, b. NC abt 1798, later lived in Madison Co., AL, Gibson Co., TN and then moved to AR between 1845 and 1848. Listed in 1850 census in Yell Co. Brother, James O. Higgins and large family lived in Sevier Co (at least from abt 1839). Michael M. and James O Higgins had several brothers and sisters. A brother William Higgins was still living in Madison Co., AL until at least abt 1839 (have to check my notes on this to be sure). In the 1860 census, Michael M Higgins' children is listed with the wife having a different last name (Edmonds). This seems to suggest that Michael had died and his wife, Mary L. remarried but, I find a Michael M. and William Higgins (brothers ) living in same household in 1860 census for Butler Co., MO. Also, marriage records exists for both in Butler Co., MO. Their ages in the Butler Co. census is about right to be the Michael M. Higgins in the 1850 Yell Co. census. I'm hoping to find descendants of Michael' s children that would have knowledge of this matter. Michael's children from 1850 census are: Maria D., James M.M., Mary E.,William V. Margaret Matthias H. and Arkansas T. My interest in this is that one of Michael's sisters, Dorothy was one of my ancestors. Thanks for any help you may be able to provide.
