I found the following info in a genealogy magazine from Southern
Arkansas: J.M.C. WISE of Claiborne,LA 26 yrs old, married ELIZABETH
ANN CANNONS of Union at the house of FREEMAN NORMAN in Cass,TWP,
Union Co, AR on Apr 12, 1849. J.M.C. Wise was actually G.M.C.
Wise, son of James E. Wise of Claiborne Parish, LA. He and Elizabeth
are my husband's ancestors. I believe Elizabeth was a widow when
they married and she had 2 girls, Salina and Elizabeth Ann. I
would sincerely appreciate any information on this FREEMAN NORMAN.
Perhaps he was a relative of hers. Elizabeth has been "lost"
since 1865 and I hope to find her by the year 2000.

I recently came across information stating that William Burke,
son of James Burke and Martha Ogden was born in Union County,
Arkansas on Jan 14, 1836. In 1845 the whole family moved to Texas,
but this same source stated that James Burke and his family had
come from Kentucky to Arkansas when James was young. James was
a veteran of War of 1812 and received a land grant in Arkansas
referencing his participation in War of 1812. I also found a Benjamin
Burke who married Susannah Ogden. Susannah was married previously
to a Seth/Samuel Burke. I believe these people are all related
and am VERY interested in any information about either family

Interested in records of Ezekiel Blanks (1805-1864) and wife Temperence
Riley Devincy Blanks (1802-1894) who settled about 1842 near Olive
Branch Methodist Church, southwest of Hillsboro, Union County.
Both were from Greene Co GA, were they were married in 1831, but
they had lived in Perry Co AL for a short time before moving on
to Union Co. They had numerous daughters, all of whom died young
and unmarried except for Elizabeth J. Blanks, who married Isaac
Nathaniel Ogden in 1851 and Mary Ann Blanks, who married Reuben
S. Breazeal in 1866. Temperence must have also been married to
a Mr. Robins, for she was the mother of Seborn Robins (1827-1894),
but I have no record of his father. Ezekiel and Temperence Blanks
left many descendents in the Ogden and Breazeals of southern Union
County. Would like to contact any descendents.

Do you know of any enumeration of the Old Champagnolle Cemetery
in Union County? The old cemetery was on the bank of the Ouchita
River, and was flooded in about 1880. The new cemetery was started
'up the bank' from the old one, and still exists. I also found
mention of Lucy Wingfield, wife of General John A. YOUNG, who
had written the records that later were the source of the Dalton-Cowles
family tree (1896) in Iredell Co NC. Is she one of yours? Are
you familiar with these records (a family bible, I believe). Still
looking for my Obadiah Driskill/Nancy Young family in Union County

My understanding is that William Vardeman Tatum and his wife Martha
moved to Union Co. Ark from Autauga Co. Ala sometime around 1845.
The Arkansas Gazette apparently published a section on 7/4/1937
with a description of a 10-mile stretch south of El Dorado known
as the Smith and Tatum plantations.

William V. Tatum's son Thomas Chamion Tatum married Susan Salina
Smith, daughter of D.M. Smith who apparently owned the Smith plantation
and possibly land in Columbia County as well. Any details you
might be able to find on either family would be much appreciated.
Thanks very much in advance, Ed Tatum

Howdy! I am looking for the ancestors of James LAWRENCE. He was
born in New York about 1795. By the 1820s he was living in Sumter
County, Alabama, where my ggg-grandmother, Julia Ann LAWRENCE,
was born. By 1860, James Lawrence was living in El Dorado, Union
County Arkansas, and reportedly was involved in building the road
from El Dorado to Magnolia.

Census data from his family and Julia Ann LAWRENCE ROBINSON's
family clearly indicate that he was born in New York. Family tradition
(probably coming from Joseph Marion ROBINSON, my gg-grandfather
and James LAWRENCEs grandson, who lived with James LAWRENCE in
1880 when the Census was taken) states that James LAWRENCEs ancestors
were from Long Island, where they were involved in the hat-making

Is there anyone who can help me connect James LAWRENCE with a
LAWRENCE family on either Long Island or in New York City? Here
is more information on the descendants of James LAWRENCE:

Jackson, LA; m. JAMES SIMPSON ROBINSON, 2 Apr 1846, Itawamba County,

ii. WILLIAM T. LAWRENCE, b. ABT 1835, AL; d. Unknown.

After years of searching for my gggrandfather Alfred W. JOHNSON,
I finally found him today in Union Co. (I think). Please help
me prove it if you can. Alfred was born in Tn., married and had
children: Joseph Addison, Edward P., Virginia in Al. The 1850
Union Co. census shows a daughter less than one year old that
could be my Alabama, but it is hard to read so I cannot be sure.
She would be the right age. My ggrandfather wasn't born until
1861, so he wouldn't be on that census, and I couldn't find any
of them on the 1860 census. In 1870 Alabama and My Robert Alexander
were on the Anderson Co., Tx. census. I need help to tie the loose
ends and flesh out these people. Anyone have any info on any of
them? If so I would really!!! love to hear from you. Thanks for
your time.

I need information on a Robert James Marrs, he lived in the Union-

ancestor. My grand father lived in Mo. for a time just prior to
the civil war and then moved to Kansas, but there are a lot of
simularities in him and the ROBERT J. in the Bradley Co. 1850
census. Anyone having information on R.J. Marrs will be greatly

Are there any mortality lists from 1840-1850? My 2 great grandfather,
William Holcomb, is on the 1840 census in Lafayette Township,
Union County. On the 1850 census, only his widow, Elizabeth Ann
Driskill Holcomb, is so-named. Also, they evidently lived in the
SE corner of Union County, which by 1850 had become Ouachita County.

Elizabeth Holcomb, in 1850 is still in Lafayette Township, only
now in Ouachita County. Her tombstone is still standing in the
Old Union Cemetery, about six miles south of Camden. Thank you.

I am researching the Archibald Benton family who were in Union
County from late 1840's/early 1850's until mid 1860's. Archibald
and wife Amelia both died in August, 1860 -- thankfully after
the census was taken but within a few weeks therafter. I have
obtained copies of many of his estate papers. They are voluminous
and quite interesting. I think he lived in the Lapile area, but
have found nothing in any county history or cemetey books. He
had 5 daughters: Sarah who married Joseph Johnson in 1860; Mary
who died in 1863; Martha Alice who married J. L. Godley probably
after moving to Texas but maybe in Union County. I now think another
sister, Georgiann, may have married J. L. Godley or another Godley,
possibly in Union County. She may have died there also. If you
can check on the marriages of Georgiann and Martha Alice I would
appreciate it very much. If I can do any lookups for you in McLennan
County, Texas feel free to ask. From looking at this man's estate
he was quite an entrepeneur, slaves, lots of land, and also I
think he must have had a general store -- but I can find nothing
in any written history. Are there any newspapers for the area
for that period that are still available? Thank you for your help.

CHANDLER converted both buildings into one hotel with 22 rooms,

I am searhcing for the Thomas BEATY/BEATIE family of Union Co.,
Arkansas. The family appears in the 1850 census in the Johnson
Township. Thomas (b. abt 1807 in South Carolina) had a wife named
Aly? (b. abt 1811 in S.C.). They had at least twelve children:
William W., Joseph K., Polly A., Sarah, Caroline, Deborah Vashti,
Susan, Charlotte Telitha, Thomas J., Roxanna, Julia, and Lucinda.
Near this family in the census are other families named BEATY/BEATIE
which I believe are related. They are Thomas and Sarah both born
about 1780 in S.C., Luelan? born about 1820 in S.C. and Larkin
born about 1821 in S.C. Thomas and Aly and their children left
Union Co., about 1854 and went to Van Zandt Co., Texas. I think
some of the other BEATY/BEATIE people may have stayed in the Union
Co. area. In particular I am looking to find out where in S.C.
this family came from (current guess is from Abbeville, S.C.)
and whether these people were of Cherokee descent. If you know
anything about this family I would appreciate hearing from you.

Looking for any information about McCOY or AARON families who
may have been living near Felsenthal around 1900. J B McCoy and
wife Mary had a daughter Willie Mae, b 5 Sep 1905 in Felsenthal.
Willie Mae was a step-sister to my g-grandmother, Minnie Ola Aaron
Sawyer. So, Mary McCoy may have been previously married to a "Babe"
Aaron. Aaron may have been spelled Aron, Arons, Aarons.

HELLO EL DORADO - UNION CO. My wife's mother is the daughter of
W.W. Leopard and Ina Vivian Davis; whom lived in Union Co. when
she (wife's mother) was born in 1921, W.W. Leopard died that same
year (1921) when the child was only a few months old. Inv Vivian
Davis Leapord then sometime later married Charlie Parker and the
family lived in Calion. Would like to correspond with anyone whom
might have any knowledge of W.W.Leopard. If lookup is possible
- there should have been some probate papers or a will - in 1921
or possibly in 1922. Would like to have a chance to check on these
proceedings. They of course would be in Union County... Thank
you for your time, Gary and Delorise in Ok.
