Book Description:

Early days in Phillips County, AR, are recalled in this spiral bound booklet, comprised of excerpts from the 1889 book, Goodspeed's Biographical and Historical Memoirs of Eastern Arkansas, and a product of the WPA, Arkansas, A Guide to the State, published in 1941. The 77-page booklet is printed on 60# paper. A vinyl sheet has been added to protect the front cover. The first part of the booklet contains a brief history of the county: Settlers, including Sylvanus Phillips, Nicholas Rightor and others, county buildings and officials, attorneys, agriculture, geology, the Civil War period, Helena, the county seat, Poplar Grove, and other communities, and other items of interest. Besides the names mentioned in the first part of the booklet, there are biographies of many county residents of yesteryear. Most are fairly lengthy, and often include ancestors, previous residences, children, in-laws, affiliations, war records, and business activities. In the course of this they often shed light on the early businesses, professions and institutions in the county. The biographies include: Capt. J.C. Barlow, Rev. J.M. Boetzkes, R.S.
