Re: marriages in scott co
Marriage records in Scott County, Arkansas go back only to 1882 because the courthouse was burned down reportedly by the outlaw John Middleton and the marriage records were destroyed in the fire.

As to your question "How far back do the marraiges go? Is there anything you can tell me about a marraige between William C. Gipson and Sarah P ivey in 1852?" I show they were married about 1852:
1860 Scott County Arkansas Census
Gipson, Wm. C. 35 M TN
S. P. 23 F AR(Sarah Ivey)
R. F. 6M AR(Ben J)
W. J. 4M AR
F. M. 2M AR(Francis M)
M. E. 1F AR
Ivy, Louisiana 15 F AR
William died on February 11, 1890, and Sarah died on June 20, 1899. They are buried in Polk County, Arkansas in Pleasant Grove Cemetery.
I also show two children for them, Benjamin F., and Francis Marion.
