History of Randolph County, Arkansas
By: Lawrence Dalton, Pub. 1946, Reprinted 2021, 408 pages, ISBN #978-1-63914-018-3. Randolph County was created in 1835 from Lawrence County and is located within the Ozark region along the Missouri border. This book is not too different from other county history books of this era. With such topics as towns, trade and transportation, labor, farming, politics, and race relations - all important in the development of the county - are carefully discussed. This type of county history book can help one develop ideas or paths to those missing ancestors by showing the customs and traditions of the local residents. A particular useful feature of this book are the biographical sketches of the following persons: Athy, Bryan, Campbell, Dalton (3), Decker, Davis-Spikes, Hite, Hogan (2), Ingram, Jarrett, Johnston, Johnson, Haynes, Holt, Lamb, McCarroll, Mock, Marlette, Maynard, Martin, Rickman, Ruff, Shride, Stubblefield, Schoonover, Smith, Shaver, Spikes, Taylor, McColgan, Thompson, Lemmons, Price, Wyatt and White.
