Saw your posting to the forum in regards to Yellville, ARk, Marion county, and wanted to pass this information on to you,.........which you probably already have.

I have no information in regards to this Weast family, and had saved this information in regards to the Bales connection.
I am researching or at least trying to the Bales family of Marion Co, Ark, mainly -Found Bailey Bales in 1860 in Jimmies Creek Township, wheelwright, >35 MO with Mary 38 MO, Elizabeth 16 MO, Lydia 15 MO, Thomas C. 11 AR, Sarah >9 AR, Polly A. 7 AR, Rachel 4 MO, and Hannah 12 MO. also an Elisa Bales 33 TN (widow, I'd guess) 1860 in Union Township with kids 2-16 all TN plus William E. 19 TN in W. B. Weast household plus Alexander 18 TN in James Hemphill household - both obviously older sons of Elisa.
I would be interested to know if you know anything about this Bales family...
