Rule LineSHAKING YOUR FAMILY TREE: QUERIES 2004


I invite you to enter a query for your Sevier County ancestors but because of our limited space, please limit it to only Sevier County ancestors. If you are not sure what part of Arkansas your relative was born, died, or resided in, might I suggest checking the Arkansas Federal Census Index, ususally located at you local library or Historical Society or Genealogical Society, for the time frames before and after the one you think they would be in. Enter your query information exactly as you want it to appear including the name of the county in case of misdirection with one exception, please enter the surnames in capital letters. Also it would be helpful if in your subject box you type "Sevier Co., Ar." so that it is not overlooked or deleted by mistake. Every effort will be made to post your query as soon as possible.

For queries email Kathy



The Sevier County Surnames page serves as a name index to the queries.

"Frog Level"
I am interested in any existing pictures of the old school that stood in Central, also known (to me) as "Frog Level". It was about 8 miles out of Horatio as you go toward the Cossatot river. In the years after it's use as a school, it was owned by Lee & I.C. Stringfellow, and served as both a store and living place. They were my grandparents, and I spent many a summer in that area. Several of my relatives still live in Horatio. I have been told that it was just called "Central School". If you ever come across pictures, I would love to see them.
