Prairie County, Arkansas History and Biographical Sketches
Prairie County, created in 1846, is located in the mid-eastern portion of the state. The historical portion of this volume contains the history of the county from it’s creation up to the time of the printing of the original in the mid-1880s. The biographical sketches were submitted by the families themselves, therefore, they are more accurate than other sources.
Example from this volume:
“W. W. Hipolite, M.D., DeVall’s Bluff. Among the people of Prairie County, as well as surrounding counties, and of the State at large, the name that heads this sketch is by no means an unfamiliar one. For many years he has been actively engaged in the practice of his chosen profession, and during this time his career as a practitioner and thorough student of medicine has won for him no less a reputation that has his personal characteristics as a citizen and a neighbor. etc...etc...”
