Excerpted from History of Pope County p570 - John Parker: John Parker was born in Maryland in 1780. He married Rachel (last name unknown) [Shipley, ed. see History of Arkansas] born in Pennsylvania in 1784. About 1822 they moved to what is now eastern Alabama where they were allowed to live and farm in Indian Territory, for reasons unknown. In 1832 the indians were driven out and the territory was divided into five counties with John and Family living in Chambers County, Alabama. John and a family of five boys and three girls were still living there in 1840. Sometime between 1841 and 1844 [1842, ed.] John chose to move his family west, stopping in Pope County, Arkansas. It is believed that some of his older boys and neighbors proceeded on to settle in Texas. However, John with his wife Rachel, sons Joshua M. and Meredith W. and daughters Louisa, Jemima and Mary A., (born in Arkansas) remained in Pope County.

I recently learned that my grandmother, Edith Mae JOHNSON, was born in Dardanelle, Arkansas in Yell County. I have her death certificate. It lists her parents as W.W. WATSON (probably Walter) and Alta STUBBS. Edith was born on 12/20/1906. I am looking for any information about WATSON or STUBBS families in Dardanelle about that time. I'm not sure where birth records would be located, so I could even use some help with that. Thanks very much in advance for any help.

Carol Papke Aug 3 1997
My grandmother, Lola Agnes LEAKE, was born in Ola in 1903. She got a delayed birth certificate in the 1940's. Could someone look in the 1900 Yell County census for Felton Pierce LEAKE or Moses Asbury LEAKE? Felton "Pierce" LEAKE was Lola's father. I think maybe Moses "Asbury" Leake (a minister) was either living with his son or another son in the same area. Moses Asbury LEAKE is supposed to be buried in a Yell Co. cemetery. I have never found these two men in the census. I did find Felton "Pierce" LEAKE in the 1910 and 1920 censuses, but that was with his wife and children. I am really looking for something that identifies Felton as the son of Moses. I just really think that Moses must have been living with someone else and therefore is not listed as head of household. Thank you so much. Carol

My great great grandfather was William Preston Jones he was born Jan 28, 1861 somewhere in Arkansas. He married Laura Jackson and had several children. He had a brother named Richard William Jones who was born about 1870 and I think most of the family was in Benton Co, Van Buren Co., and Yell Co. If you know any ancestors or descendants of this family please contact me. Thank you.

I am searching for my Great Grand Father-Abe WILLIAMS. I was told that he was born in Yell Co. Ark in 1832. However I have not been able to find him. Perhaps they ment top tell me Yellville, Ark. I believe that is Marion Co. If anyone could help me find him, I would be very happy. I do not know the name of his father or mother. He may even have brothers and sisters. I just don't know. I thank you for any help you can give me.
