Dallas County, Arkansas History and Biographical Sketches


Dallas County was created in 1845 in south central Arkansas. This material was originally published by Goodspeed Publishing in the late 1800s and this reprint contains memoirs and biographies of the early pioneers. Because the information was compiled by the referenced family, it should be very accurate and detailed. This volume also contains a brief history of the county as it developed up to the time this volume was written in the 1880s.

Dr. P. W. Wood, physician, surgeon and minister, Fordyce, Ark. Among the citizens of Dallas, as well as surrounding counties, the name that heads this sketch is by no means an unfamiliar one, for it is borne by one who is actively and successfully occupied in the prosecution of his chosen profession, and whose career as a practitioner and thorough student of medicine has won for him no less a reputation than has his personal characteristics as a citizen and neighbor. Dr. Wood was born in Pontotoc County, Miss. in 1840, and is the son of Solomon L. Wood, a native, probably, of Alabama.
