Will search all early records and compile a complete list of findings, including source information



I can use the following resources to try to locate a specific person or family.
1) The Territorial Papers of the Unites States concerning AR (three volumes concern AR Territory). These Territorial Papers are often overlooked and contain names from petitions for things such as new roads, new post offices, new counties, etc.
2) Arkansas Territorial Court Records. These records include witness testimony.
3) Lawrence County Circuit Court Records 1818-1830 and Deed Book B 1817-1825. Called the “mother of counties” Lawrence County originally covered most of the northern part of Arkansas.
4) Early Tax Records for various counties including Lawrence County and Izard County.
5) Arkansas Newspaper Abstracts 1819-1845.
6) Lawrence County, Missouri Territory tax lists 1815-1817 – This is before AR Territory was formed.

Ordering instructions from drnewman6

You tell me who you would like to obtain records for. This can be one individual statewide or a family in a certain location (the exception would be every record for a common name like “John Smith” in the whole state). If you don’t know the location but believe they were in Arkansas, please tell me as much as you know about that, and anything that might be helpful. I will then compile and send a list of all records found, along with source citations or a photocopy of the abstracted information. In some instances I may be able to provide copies of original records, such as some AR Territorial Court Records.
