Updating families and adding more to my stories
My information comes mainly from census, marriage, cemetery and
Civil War Pension Records and my Family Group Sheets collected
over many years.
I used FAMILYSEARCH.ORG
FIND-A-GRAVE
WORLDCONNECT.COM
ARCHIVES.COM
CEMETERY BOOKS I and II by Herman & Oleta Holt Haddock
These books are a "gold mine" of information
Family members also send me information
Also have saved many Newton County Times Newspaper clippings over the
years.
Have many family folders also
Have a huge stack of Emails and articles filed under surnames,
which has taken over my computer room.
WISH I HAD A FREE FILE CLERK

Have self-published Newton County, Arkansas 1900 Census books.
There are 22 Townships in Newton County and have self-published a
1900 Census book for each township with many notes included.
Have also self-published Newton County, Arkansas Marriage Books,
E, F, G I, J and lots of this information comes from my research from
these books.
Have also transcribed the 1910 Newton County, Arkansas Census but,
have not published it.
Have the 1920 Newton County, Arkansas CD census which I use for
reference.
Have spent many,many hours viewing microfilms in LDS Family History
centers and other libraries in different states.
Own a large genealogy library which include many books from
different Arkansas Counties and different states.
Bud Phillips wrote several books and in one of his books "New Ozark
Cousins" he tells about these families and I will quote some from his
book.
His book is available through the Newton County, Arkansas Historical Society and their web page is on line.
NEED YOUR HELP to complete these Family Genealogies.
Will give credit to people who have helped me with these stories.
If I neglect to list your name, please write me.
Don't want to leave anyone out.
Am grateful for your help in filling in the missing information on
any family.Hopefully many people will gain from this research.

Also belong to Newton County Historical Society which issues great
genealogy bulletins.
Several BUD PHILLIPS STORIES, a great story teller, are listed
I live in California but my husband Kenneth Flood was born in
Newton County,Arkansas. Have visited Newton County several times.
Many of my husband's kinfolks live in Newton County.


THESE STORIES ARE A NEVER ENDING THING.....I CONTINUALLY UPDATE

Have discovered much more information since I first printed these

add the new information to your personal records.
I no longer sell books
