I am interested to find anyone who might be able to help with me with the Shults family in Marion Co., AR.My 2nd great-grandfather was James William Shults, born 1845, Mississippi, and died in 1903 near Bruno, Marion Co., AR. His widowed mother, Elizabeth (maiden name unknown currently), remarried to John Winston Beckham in Marion Co., about 1851.Marion Co. court records were destroyed by fire in 1887. All family members have had no luck in learning the name of the father of her children, James William, Jesse Garl and Mary Jane Shults.Mary Jane is to have been born in Arkansas and was born in 1848. The only Shults family in Marion Co., Searcy Co., Newton Co. or Boone Co., AR, is an elder couple, Jacob Shults, born about 1787 and his wife, Nancy, born about 1791, and were in the 1850 Marion Co., Ark. census. Although I have no documentation, I believe that there is some connection between this couple and the father of my ancestor, James William Shults. If anyone can shed any light on this sepcific family, I would be glad to exchange information. Thanks, Gene Norris.
