of his life. He married
Caldonia TUCKER (b. 1862 in Yell Co,

Havana.: Arthur, my
grandfather (b. 1881, d. 1918), Carl, Roy, Chester,
Lillian, Burl, Verna, Nettie and
Hettie. I have
information on Caldonia
TUCKER FRAZIER, but I can't seem to
find a thing for Will FRAZIER. My dad and
aunt said that his mother was a widow named Sarah
HODGES and that she had 3 boys when she married
Will's father. My uncle, Jim FRAZIER, still
lives in Havana, but he is up in age and doesn't
remember much about the family history. My dad
passed away 4 years ago and so a lot of the family
history has been lost. How I wish I had listened

Looking for information on a woman named

who moved her family from Knox Co., KY to Yell Co.,
AR sometime before the

JACKSON and he died in KY in 1860. Their

married to Margaret BAKER; Arch 1867-1895
married to Dorcas
MILLS. Other children that I don't know if they
went or not: Elizabeth b. 1862; Lawrence Allen b.
1863; Mary Jane b. 1865; Hannah Ellen b. 1870
married John Taylor; and Martha b. 1875.
I believe that either Daniel's brother or maybe
Joicy's family may have
moved there before them, so if the names JACKSON
or EDWARDS or Knox Co., KY ring a bell,

TORRENCE / COLE /
STRAYHORN / DAVIS / ROBERTS / HOWELL /
My African American Families members lived in Yell
county in the middle of the 1800's. Some family
members still remain in the county (Mrs. Roy
TORRENCE), although their numbers have decreased
significantly. Based on family history, it is clear
that many of my family members were slaves, or newly
freed slaves by the time they arrived in the county.
Historical traces of these family members are quite
limited since few records of slaves seem to remain
available in the country. Prior
contacts suggests that the county court house
burned many years ago and destroyed historical
property records that might have been helpful. Of
particular interest to me are the following
individuals, their families of origin, any slave
records, and other information that might help trace
their histories: Monroe COLE-- born around
1847 and worked for the
Strayhorns he lived in Spring Creek Township,
District 2; married to Callie COLE; some
members of the family took the name STRAYHORN
after the end of slavery while others took the name
John Smith ROBERTS--born Sept. 2, 1842 near
Old Lewisburg, Ark. Reported to have died around
1913 in Danville, Ark. Married to a Nan DAVIS.
Lucinda Roberts HOWELL--born around 1825 in
Danville; married to Capt. John D. HOWELL;
they produced a large number of offspring: Alex and
Anna STANCIL/STANSEL--born in the 1860's near
Danville worked for the STANCIL family; John
FOWLER--born around 1878 and reported to have
died in Danville around 1930; married a Winnie
STANCIL in 1899; My interests are in finding out
more about these individuals, their histories,
family connections, slave history (if any), origins
(particularly to Africa and the
Carribean), information about their owners,
and places of burial. Any assistance or information
that can be provided either about these individuals
or about methods for researching more about their
past would be welcomed.

homesteaded in Yell Co. July 01, 1879. On the 1880
Census he was newly widowed with seven children, the
youngest being 4 months old. He was back in
Washington Co. Arkansas (where he grew up)living
next door to his mother and father and his brother
and sister-in-law. There are no Cemetery records in

Ed Crump, Jr.
My Inquiry actually involves two brothers: William
Thomas BROWN b. Apr 9, 1828 Jackson County MO
d. Feb 4, 1906, Altus, Franklin, AR -and-
BROWN (William's brother) b.
Abt 1843 AR d.
(probably) Jan 15, 1865 Dardanelle, AR. Hal was a
Lt. in the Confederacy and William Thomas was a
doctor for the Union Army.
The story is that Halbert
"Montgomery" BROWN was shot in a skirmish at
Dardanelle on Jan 14, 1865, and that his brother
William attended to him. Unfortunately, Hal was
mortally wounded with a shot to his chest and did
not survive. He was in Co. "I" of the Arkansas 11th
and 17th Mounted Infantry, but I do not know what
unit of the Union Army William was in. He was
supposed to be located at an Army Hospital near
Dardanelle. Hal was in MS in Nov of 1864 with his
usit, and I do not know
why he was back in AR in Jan 1865.
Is there a Civil War expert in the area that would
be familiar with this final skirmish at
Darnanelle? And were
there any newspaper, or other, accounts of the
action there? Thanks.
b. 1840 TN. d. 07 Jan 1900 in Yell Co. Served with
Battalion Arkansas Cavalry. Had a farm in Mt. Ida
(Montgomery Co.) but widow's pension states he died
in Yell Co. Would appreciate any information that
you have. Thank you.

County, Texas, and later returned to Arkansas where
he married Kansas SULLIVAN. At some point in time,
Hector settled in Yell County, where he spent the
rest of his days. I do not have a date of death on

married Turner B. Carnall,
of Fort Smith, in the early 1880's, I believe. I
have a shred of a newspaper obit (no date) telling
of his death, on the '19th', but no month or
year...he is reported to have died at his home in
Yell County. He was 72 at the time of his death. The
newspaper story says: 'Mr.
Veazey was one of the oldest and most honored
citizens of Yell County. He had lived a long and
useful life, being in his 72nd year at the time of
his death. During the Civil War he served in the
Confederate Army...' I have a copy of a letter he
wrote to his daughter, my grandmother, in 1873, when
she had 'taken the cars to Russellville,' where she
went to college. I don't think the college is still
there. Any help in getting information about Robert
Veazey would be MOST
