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.

Patricia Thomas

I am searching the whereabouts of my great-grandmother, Margaret Patton, buried in an African-American Cemetery called Horatio. She died in the area 1935. Her daughter at the time was Lillian Williamson who lived in the area as a school teacher. If possible, can you direct me to the person who knows about the cemetery? Also, her husband at the time was Mahlon or Mahlon Williamson. He might have died in the area too around 1930.

I would like to post a querie concerning an unknown McKissick. He was the father of my G-G-Grandfather, Alexander McKissick Stinnett. McKissick supposedly went off to war and left my GGG-Grandmother pregnant. Did not return or was killed in the war. Elizabeth remarried to John Stinnett, as the story goes Alexander took the Stinnett name. Hit a brickwall, cannot find anything on McKissick. James R. Stinnett
