HISTORY OF MARION CO AR
The History of Marion County, AR was originally published in 1977 by the Marion County Historical Association and is now out-of-print. The Marion County Historical Association holds the copyright for the 1977 printing. The book was compiled by the Marion County History Committee: Lyle Wood, Chairman; Bernice Smith; Barbara Doshier; Mrs. Effie Thompson; Marian Burnes; Glenn and Bernice Johnson; Baxter and Geneva Hurst; Hilda Blankenship; June Young; Jean Hilderbrand; Mary Martin and Cora Taylor
In 2002 The Marion County Historical and Genealogical Association gained permission to reprint the book. It holds the copyright to the 2002 reprint. The reprinted book may be ordered from the Society.
Mr. Lyle Wood (the noted Marion Co Historian) and the Marion County Historical Association have graciously permitted parts of the original 1977 book to be posted here to help all Marion the County, AR researchers. I would like to thank Mr. Lyle Wood and the Association for their generosity and their support.
This transcription would not have been possible without the help of Julie Predmore who xeroxed her copy (all 525+ pages) of the 1977 book and gave it to me.
RESPECT THE COPYRIGHT: This book is still under the copyright of the Marion County Historical Association and may not be used for any purpose other than your own personal research. It may not be reproduced nor placed on any web page nor used by anyone or any entity for any type of "for profit" endeveor.
Please Note:I will not be transcribing, at this time, the information from the Pioneer Families of Marion County, Chapter 12. The Historic Genealogical Society of Marion County Arkansas has updated all of these family histories in their book "Marion County Families: 1811-1900". If you would like to receive the information on a family found in chapter 12 please use the Look-Up page and request a copy from one of the people there.
There are many photos in the book that I haven't yet scanned. If a photo is mentioned in a chapter without a link, and you'd like a copy, please contact the Marion Co Genealogy Society (My copy is a xeroxed copy and the Society has a copy of the original book).
The cute graphics on the chapter pages are not a part of the book. They're my way of having a bit of fun. Linda
