Re: Coming to Izard Co. to do research
Hope by now you have made your trip and found lots of info to help you unravel the mystery of your John Robert (Pike) Fountain's parents.
Pike has been a mystery to me also , I know he's got to be the one Rev. Alfred Fountain refers to in the letter that I have, but still have not figured out who his parents were, so I'm hoping you were able to locate that information or at least something to help further your search for them.
I don't know how but do still believe he was related to my grandmother somehow for Rev. Alfred to have mentioned Pike's well being and were he was living to my grandmother's brother in law. He was "one of the Fountain Tribe", as Rev. Alfred often referred to the Fountains, I'm sure.
I am curious to learn what you may have located.
