Re: Smith and Bookout Benton County Arkansas
Sheryl, the webpage you listed is mine. It's been a while since I made it and haven't updated my email address. The dates I have for Louis Bookout are abt 1845 GA, d. 8 Jul 1880 Benton Co., AR. Marilla Elizabeth Suringer born 2 Apr 1851 Rocky Comfort, MO, died 14 Jan 1917 Gravette, Washington Co., AR. They married 20 Jan 1867 Benton Co., AR. [Benton Co. AR Marriage Records}. After Louis died, Marilla married J. E. Cherry on 3 Nov 1887 Benton Co., AR [Benton Co., AR Marriage Records].Louis is the son of William E. Bookout and Nancy Rollins. I copied the papers from Nancy's probate and from Louis' probate from the Benton Co Courthouse years ago. If you don't have them, let me know and I can either snail mail them to you or scan them and email them. I do not know Nancy Rollins parents.
Do you know the BentonCounty obituaries from all the old newspapers were published in Obituary books and are available to look at in all the local libraries? If so, have you looked for Joseph N. Smitha nd Nancy Snodgrass there? I have not looked for them, but I can if you haven't seen these books. I found where some of my Bookouts had children die young that I had never heard of and would never have known without the books.
