Benton County, located on the extreme northwestern corner of the state, was created 30 September 1836 in the log cabin of Judge George P. Wallace who was the first Session Judge of the State. The county was named for Senator Thomas Hart Benton who lobbied for the statehood of Arkansas. This historical section of the book covers the time from the creation up to the time of the first publication of the Goodspeed’s history in the mid-1880s. The biographical portions of the material were submitted by the families themselves, therefore, they would appear to be more accurate than other sources.

Example from this volume:

“JOHN BLACK, clerk of the county court of Benton County, Ark., is a native of Warren County, Tenn., born in 1831, son of Alexander and Mary (Smith) Black, and granson of Samuel Black. Alexander Black was born in Kentucky, was of Scotch-Irish descent, and a merchant by occupation. When a small boy he went to McMinnville, Tenn., and here in later years followed merchandising. He died in East Tennessee in 1856. etc...etc...
