There is great difficulty tracing these family lines throughout Arkansas, etc. Problems of a broken family, same names for cousins, burnt courthouses, lack of census entries, etc. I am working on putting together what I think may be a pretty good 3 generation chart on Robert Francis Tinkle, and another on Micajah Tinkle. There has to be assumptions made and there are questions and mysteries. I'm sure I have made errors, and I am not finished as of yet. However, I have put what I have done on a disk and would gladly share it with anyone who would offer input or comment.
