Johnson County, Arkansas History and Biographical Sketches


Originally published by Goodspeed Publishing in the late 1880s, this reprint contains memoirs and biographies of Johnson County pioneers. Johnson County, in the northwestern portion of the state, was created in 1833 and named for Ben Johnson, one of the Territorial Judges of the area. This biographical and historical collection gives a brief history of the area and then biographical sketches of families and individuals who submitted them at the time. Since the families submitted the information itself, we can consider this to be fairly accurate.

P.J. CARR is now living a retired life, but has led an active career and was one of the most successful merchants and planters in this section. He was born in Logan County, KY, November 5, 1816, to Daniel and Martha (Jones) Carr, they being born, reared and married on Blue Grass soil.... etc. etc.
