Searching for Thornton Arnold, 1900 census Stone County, AR. Family migrated to Quinlan Tx in 1910. Thornton was born May, 1826 in Tenn. Lived in Ar. from 1840's til death.
Married Mary Malinda Decker of Izard County 17 July 1873. They raised 8 children in Stone county. W. J. Arnold, 2nd son (William Jordan, my grandfather) was born 4-03-1876 married Mary Lynn of Stone County, 1901. My father Hansford Earl Arnold was born in Stone County 12-19-1908. His grandfather Thornton died before he was born.
Our family is searching for the parents of Thornton Arnold and for Thornton's grave site, death records or any other records surrounding this branch of Arnold family
Any services you might be able to help with would be wonderful. We seem to be stuck on Thornton (also known as Riley Arnold). We have a photo of him presumably around 1900 along with his wife, Mary Malinda Decker Arnold and my grandfather William and Mary (Lynn) when they married.
Thank you. Mary L. (Arnold) Kukulski

Query: In the 1930's in Stone County there was a murder on the steps of
a school house/church.  My grandfather Noel Jason was there at the time
as a student.  He said that it was a very tramatic thing for all the
people that were there at that time.  He told a couple of details but
would not tell anymore.  I wondered if anyone may have heard of
something like this in the 30's.  He lived in between Fifty Six and
Newnata.  It may have been a school near Roasting Ear, Fifty Six, Red
Doors, etc.

Query: I am searching for the parents of Sarah Jane Hinkle.  She was
born about 1852 in Arkansas.  Family stories say she was an orphan.  She
shows up in Hardin Co, TN, in 1870, as a niece living in the household
with Zebil (Hinkle) Patterson.  In 1873, she married Peter P. Downing,
son of William and Effa (Hinkle) Downing.  Effa Hinkle and Zebil Hinkle
were sisters.  Their brother, William Hinkle, lived in Izard Co, AR in
the 1840-1860 time period.  Sarah Jane's death certificate lists her
parents as Jesse Hinkle and Sarah Gifford, for what that's worth.  I
keep coming across the 1860 census for Christian Twp, Independence Co,
AR listing Jesse Hinkle, age 56; wife: Fanny, age 40; Sarah J., age 7;
Selser, age 4.  This Selser, born about 1856, is the subject of a bio in
Northeast Arkansas Biographies and Historical Memoirs.  His bio states
that his sister, Sarah J. was deceased by the time the information was
collected (pub. 1889.)  My Sarah Jane lived until 1924, but she
apparently never went back to Arkansas after moving to TN, so she could
have lost touch with any family she had there.  In 1860, Selser Hinkle,
age 40, lives next door, with Jesse M., age 23, in his household.  I
believe that Jesse Hinkle, age 56, is also the father of Jesse M.
Hinkle, as the two of them are listed in 1850 in Independence Co, AR.
Can anyone shed any light on these people?  Who did Selser Hinkle (b.
ca. 1856) live with after the death of his parents?  His bio says they
were both dead before 1860, but we know that isn't true, since they are
listed in the 1860 census.

Query: I am looking for any information about James G. Hodges who moved
from Alton, MO to Stone Co., AR around 1873. James is listed in the 1880
Stone Co. Census with the wife Sarah O.  Is this the Sarah O. Faryos
that marriage records indicate that he married in August of 1874?  James
has two stepchildren listed in the census surnamed Taylor.  Was Faryos a
maiden name for Sarah or was she married 3 times?

Query:      I have a Lottie Caldonia Morris, Stone Co., Ar.
8/4/1880.  Would someone who has an 1880 Stone Co. Census Book please
look and see if they can find a Lottie Caldonia Morris listed with her
parents, whose names I do not know, but would like to know.  Her name
could possibly have been Charlotty Caldonia, and she would only be a few
months old, if listed on this census.
