I would like to send for copies of several early marriages in Yell County.  I know that they should be ordered from the County Clerk; but what is the cost per record?  Most sites on the web provide a generic letter and cost of these records but I have spent much time searching different sites and haven't found one yet with this information.  Generally, the computer makes all of this much more convenient.  Thank you,

Query 496

Georgia (Fruen) Aeverman Saturday, October 23, 1999
I am seeking information on the family of Joseph and Cordelia FRUEN (sometimes spelled FRUIN).  Joseph and Cordelia are on the 1880 census for Yell Co AR.  Cordelia had three children by her first marriage:
Henry Calvin Dickerson, Josephine Dickerson who married William Walt in 1875 and Evaline Dickerson who married J J Solomon in 1878.  I don't have the marriage for Henry Calvin.
Joseph and Cordelia had one son, William Edward Fruen who married Isabel Callahan in Scott Co AR in 1907.  Cordelia, as Fruin, acquired land by a federal land grant in 1883.  The document states that she is the widow of Joseph Fruin.  This narrows his death date for me, as he appearred on the 1880 census.  I have checked the cemetery records and found nothing on him.  But, he obviously died in Yell Co. Another puzzle:  Josephine is listed on the 1880 census with Joseph and Cordelia as a Dickerson.  Were there two Josephine Dickerson's of the same
age?  Probably not.  Yet, I can find nothing further on William Walt.  He isn't listed in the cemetery books either.  Since he was somewhat older than she, I wondered if he died between 1875 and 1880.  I found H C Dickerson on the personal property tax records for 1887 in Yell
Co.  Cordelia died in 1919 at the home of William Ed Fruen in Waldron, Scott Co, AR.

Karylon Russell  Friday, October 01, 1999
Early Scott/Yell Co. settler, Abihu REECE m. Caroline SCOTT in Pulaski Co. AR, built one of the first mills in that area of AR. However, little is known about the man. His wife died after giving birth to 4 children, and Abihu then married a young lady in the Upper LaFave area named Margaret CORNELIUS. Before they had any children of their own, Abihu died, circa 1849, and since Margaret was very young and the children were not hers, the four orphans were placed in various homes by census time of 1850. Margaret, a daughter of Pamelia SULLENS CORNELIUS (no remarried to John H. MAXWELL), soon remarried herself to John K. GILES. The orphaned children were: Henderson, Marion, Radford, & Mary Ann REECE. Why were these children placed primarily in the home of Wm. K. Billy & Elzira DAVIS. Two lived wth them; another lived with their son, Edward W. Ned & Mary B. MAXWELL DAVIS, and the oldest boy, Henderson, lived with Lucy & Christian MYERS. I have been trying to follow up on these children for years. Indications are that the girl went to Texas with the Davis family, but I have not been able to find the boys. Karylon A. Russell, Box 823, Llano, TX 78643 

Query 474

Karylon A. Russell  Tuesday, September 28, 1999
In the early 1850's many of the earliest settlers of Yell Co. AR (some who had been living in Scott Co. AR several years before Yell was created), left the Lower LaFave area for Texas. Among these families included the following: Wm. K. (Billy) & Elzira DAVIS; children of Isaac D. MAXWELL (decd); Wm Hudspeth & Amanda Morgan MILLER; John S. & Telitha Cumi Poor WATSON; Merrill Simpson GARRETT. All of these families ended up along the Colorado River area in either Llano or Burnet Co. TX. By the late 1870's members of these families joined them: CORNELIUS, MARR, Jordan S. & Elvira Maxwell PARKS; James Taylor MAXWELL; children of Absolom & Melcenie Cornelius MAXWELL; James Carter GARRETT. Descendants of almost all of these families still live in this area of Texas. I can provide a lot of information on some of these families and some on others. I hope this will be of help to many researchers of this early period of Yell Co. history. Karylon A. Russell, Box 823, Llano, TX 78643 krussell@moment.net

I have been searching for years for proof of the parentage of Elzira ? DAVIS, b. ca. 1807/8 TN m. Wm. K. (Billy) DAVIS ca. 1824 prob. Giles Co. TN. The family came to early AR, first in Crawford/Johnson CO., then Scott/Yell Co. by 1836. Their children were: Thomas Henry (m. Martha FRY/FRIE in AR); Edward W. "Ned" (m. Mary B. MAXWELL in Yell Co.); Caleb A. (m. in TEXAS); Benjamin F.(m. in TEXAS), Lucy Parthena (m. Alvis D. HAMLIN from Johnson Co. AR in Texas); M.D.L. (m. in TEXAS); & Margaret Melcenie (m. brother of Mary B. MAXWELL in Texas). Elzira disappears from Llano Co. TX tax rolls circa 1864, but since no burial spot has ever been located, it is only assumed she died at this time. About the only solid clues I have about her are the name clues mentioned above as well as her own, which is very rare indeed. All other clues are pure speculation. Karylon A.

I also suspect that an Eliphas Allison BERRYHILL may have married in Yell County in the late 1800s. I have found no marriage record for him in Pope County. He is on the 1900 or 1910 Yell County census, before he moved to OK. Another family line from Pope County with Yell County ties is the daughter of David Owen MARTIN, who married a HALE in Yell County. I do not have a marriage record or any further information. However, the MARTIN family was in Conway County in ca 1860. There are also descendants of Alexander WHEELER and his wife, nee' Sibalina McALISTER, who located in Yell County during this century. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
