Hello -- I'm looking for information on my grandmother, Louise
(Louisa) Vaughn Holderby. I was told she was born in or
near Batesville, Arkansas about 1861. She died before I was born
but I was told she was raised by another family. I was always told
she was part Indian. In my research, I have just found her on
the 1870 census living in Batesville, Independence, Arkansas with
Charles and Eunice D. Maxwell. Evidently he was the editor of the
paper. She was 10 years old at the time. She married my
grandfather, John Pool about 1887. They lived in Jonesboro, I
believe and then in Kennett, MO. Any information you could give me
re the Holderbys of Batesville and especially of my grandmother and
her father and mother would be most appreciated. Thank you, Sandra

, ARKANSAS - CLERANCE S. HUGHES - LEE ANDER GUSTOVIS HUGHES- EFFIE
HUGHES - JOSEPH FLETCHER HUGHES BORN JAN. 24, 1896 AND CLARA
HUGHES BORN 1898
Since his wife married James M.

I have a question about ancient pottery and how in the world it
would have made it to Arkansas, specifically the Strawberry River.
Last year, I went to an estate sale and purchased 2
pieces of Indian pottery from the Freeze estate in Oil Trough. Mr.
Freeze told me that a friend of his found the pottery near the banks
of the Strawberry River. Anyhow, we took the pieces to Murfreesboro
for an evaluation and were pleasantly surprised. Sam Johnson from
the Caddo Trading Co. said these pieces are Peruvian, from the
Chavin dynasty and were created approx 400 - 600 B.C. Would these
have something to do with the Hernando DeSoto expedition in
Arkansas? Or what could be another explanation of how they made

if you could help with my Burns family. My great great
grandfather was Erastus Burns b. 1838 Arkansas, s/o Elijah J.
Burns, born in South Carolina around 1795, I believe, and we
havenít been able to determine Erastusí mother. Some suspect
the last name may have been Logan, but I donít know how they
arrived at that thought. I believe Erastusí siblings were:
Hannah b. 1828, Elizabeth b. 1833, William Edward b. 1838,
Stephen Columbus b. 1840. Elijah leaves Arkansas sometime
between 1840 and 1850 and turns up in Wright Co., Missouri, I
believe married to someone named Naomi A. Young. There are more
children born in Missouri that I believe to be from Naomi.
Does any of
this sound like any of your Burns Family?

We lived on land east of Batesville owned by James Slayden, my

picture of Blue Creek School or print it from online?

My name is Dale O'Bear, and I am trying
to trace the family roots. My grandfather was known as John Henry
O'Bear to the family. My uncle said he thought his dad told him
there was a name change but is not sure. Here is all I know about
John Henry O'Bear. He was born Nov. 25, 1881 in Independence County,
Arkansas. I am told he had two sisters that died in their teens but
have nothing to verify this.
I have run into a brick wall looking for
information on his past. Can you tell me if there is anybody that
does lookups and the cost of this endeavor? I have all kinds of
information on other branches of this family except my grandfather.
Any information you may have would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you in advance for your

hoping to find family connections which can provide insight into the
lives of the above persons.
I would like any info on the orphans
who lived with Dr. James Barnes in the 1860's & 70's. My
G-Grandfather Wm. Rufus Heafner was supposedly an orphan raised
by a doctor around Batesville.
On the 1870 census there is a 'Renfus?'
Hefner (age 12 ) working for Dr. Barnes,
I can find no other information on
him or his parents and I would very much appreciate any help you
could give me.
