Here is a hint: SCOTT COUNTY ARKANSAS INDEX TO INVENTORY RECORD A 1887 - 1914
Although the title of this book indicates it covers the time period 1887 to 1914, those were the recording dates and these inventories of the estates of deceased Scott County citizens actually cover records from approximately 1881 to 1913. These records have been transcribed and published by Scott County Historical & Genealogical Society, P.O. Box 1560, Waldron, AR 72958. The price for the book is $25.00 + $3.00 mailing. Or you may order copies of the information for the estates listed below from the Society for $1.00 per page plus a stamped, self-addressed envelope. The number of pages for each estate is enclosed in (brackets) following the name of the deceased.
ABBOTT, George W. Sr. (2) (Crossed out) ABBOTT, W.F. (1)
