Query: I have a mystery.  My mother's uncle, Rufus Linus Nicholson, was
seen in the family as a mysterious, but single, man.  Now, I find
something that says he married Ella Lane, of Springdale, Arkansas, about
1906-1908.  They may have married in Arkansas and they may have married
in Florida, where appear to be living in 1910.  After that, they moved
to Jefferson County, Alabama, where Rufus Linus' family lived, but not
near (by the standard of those times) his family.  So, I'm trying to
figure out if this is a massive coincidence of Rufus Linus Nicholson,
born in Alabama in the right year, being in the 1910 census with Ella
and her daughter, or whether this man had a family his family knew
nothing about.   They had at least two daughters, Iva Irene and
Ellabelle, who died in the early 1990s in Jefferson County, Alabama.
Iva Irene married Roy Carl Bailey of Alabama.  Ellabelle married a Mr.

Does any of this sound familiar to anyone?

Query: Looking for info on Richards family that was in Washington County
in the 1840's, 50's.  I am not sure if Levi Richards is the father I am
looking for, but his is the only name I have found in the 1840 census.
If this is him, he was married to Agnes ?.  They had several children,
one of them being James Fisher Richards, who was born in 1840.  Any
information on this family would be greatly appreciated.

Query: I see that on your cemeteries list you have a John Rutherford listed as a cemetery.
I think that this is an abandoned cemetery that has John Alexander Rutherford and his wife
buried there together.  The funeral home there, I think it's lingunbel, used to
have it listed on thier site, but has recently changed it to be listed as the Rutherford cemetery
in Hogeye.  I think this is a mistake.  I believe that this cemetery is somewhere up there in
the hills by itself with only John & his wife.

Does anyone have a source of where to got the listing for the John Rutherford cemetery?,
or even better, where it is located?

Query: I'm trying to find my 2gr gdma's grave in Washington Co, AR.

Phebe (James) SCOTT
d.  3 Mar 1886
post office address:  Boonesboro P.O., Washington Co, AR

I'm assuming that would be in or near Cane Hill.  The last visit to her
grave that I know of was in the 1950s.  The headstone wasn't in good
shape at that time, but I'm hoping the names in the cemetery were
recorded back then.  The relative who visited the grave is elderly now
and believes the grave was a few miles SE of the Fayetteville Lake.
living with her son, Greenup Scott, and Greenup wrote a letter telling
of his mother's burial.  He gave his mailing address as Boonesboro,
Washington Co, AR.

Hoping someone is familiar with the cemeteries in that area.  I'm not
having any luck with cem. indexes.

I`m looking for information on Ernest E. Smith born in AR, Washington Co.
He got KIA on Dec 2nd 1944 in France or Germany (Europe).
I`m looking for pictures of him and I also hope that I can find some family members of him.
I`m very interested in the history of the 2nd World War. Looking back in time
turnal into beeing something I don`t just call my hobby it became a part of my life. I
even got a nice car from the 40`s. (Ford GPW Jeep 1943). So it would be very nice if
I could get some information about the soldier Ernest E. Smith. In memory of all
the fallen soldiers in the 2nd World War I have the name „Enest E. Smith“
on my Jeep too.  The soldier Ernest E. Smith died close to my hometown
and he got burried in St. Avold (France).  Me and my family went to his
grave a couple of times and now we are really interested in the history.
As you probably noticed „Ernest E. Smith“ have the same lost name as I do.
Schmitt = Smith.
That is also a reason why my heart is with finding out what`s behind
that person and soldier.

Query: Looking for information on Charles R. Thomas and Mary Jane
Crowder/Thomas who resided in Sugar Hill, Washington Co., Arkansas in
1900 and Price, Washington Co., Arkansas in 1910.  Lost contact with
this family after 1910.  Charles and Mary Jane had sons Alva, Birdie and
Alonzo.  Prior to 1900 they lived in McDonald Co., Missouri.

It is thought that Charles R. Thomas was previously married to Leah Jane
McMahan of Neosho, Newton Co., Missouri.  Charles and Leah were listed
on the 1880 census of Neosho, Newton Co., Missouri along with son
Commodore Thomas.  Charles and Leah were divorced some time after 1881.
I believe these two Charles R. Thomas' are one of the same even though
one census report states his place of birth was Virginia and another one
says Iowa.

I have been searching for my ggrandfather for many years and I would
appreciate a little help in my research.  Can anyone help??????

Query: Seeking information on Francis Davenport Vann.  She was born
about 1827 in New York.  In March of 1852 she married Willis Vann
(Conway, Perry or Pulaski County Arkansas).
Willis died about 1867.  By 1870, Francis and two children; William H.
and John Willis Vann were living in Springdale, Washington County
Arkansas.  A third child; Laura was married to John S. Cornwell and also
living in same area.
By 1880 Francis is living with daughter Laura and son in law J.S.
Cornwell in Washington County, Arkansas.  John and William Vann seem to
have disappeared.  By 1900 Laura and family had moved to Oklahoma.
I am particularly interested in what became of Francis and the two boys,
John and William.

If anyone is researching any of these surnames (Vann, Davenport, or
Cornwell) in the Washington County area, please contact me.
