FUSSELL, HARRISON FAMILY
Descendants of Harrison Fussell Family by Loyd Sybert: Fore word to The Descendants of Harrison Fussell-Originally I planned on doing research on my maternal and paternal ancestors only. As my research progressed, I found that my ancestors were both related and allied with many founding families in St. Francis County, Arkansas and the surrounding area. As I became more familiar with the local history, I was made aware of the rich and proud heritage of the people in this area. I also saw that this local history is disappearing at an alarming rate. My concern that this local history should be preserved is my motivation for this work. It is my hope that my small effort may serve to interest descendants in their ancestors. Captain James Vaulx Fussell who was to become President of Fussell-Graham-Alderson Co., President of the National Bank of Eastern Arkansas and the Service Company, was the son of James Vaulx and Louisa (Alston) Fussell who were natives of Davidson County, Tennessee and Chatham County, North Carolina respectively, and was directly descended from the Alston and Ramsey families who were prominent in the history of North Carolina. Captain Fussell was born at Trenton, Tennessee. He moved to Forrest City in 1875 to straighten out some business for the now extinct Stewart-Gwynne & Co. and stayed to start his own firm. This family is of particular interest to me because the daughter of James Vaulx Fussell, Sr. and Louisa Alston Fussell, Fannie A. Fussell married Edwin Thomas Colt, the contractor who constructed the St. Louis, Iron Mountain and Southern Railroad, later known as the Missouri Pacific Railroad, through Taylor's Creek later to become Colt (my home town).. Some of the data contained in this family tree is anecdotal, therefore I will be most grateful for any correction that you may be able to provide. Loyd N. Sybert
