Originally published by Goodspeed Publishing in 1889, this reprint contains memoirs and biographies of Phillips County pioneers. Phillips County was created on May 1st 1820 and was named for Sylvanus Phillips, a pioneer settler. The original county seat was called Monticello but was changed to Helena after one of the daughters of Sylvanus. This collection of materials gives a brief history of the county and then a group of biographical sketches of some of the families at the time of the writing in the mid-1880s. Because the information was compiled by the referenced family, it should be very accurate and detailed.

 

Example

“Edward L. Hubbard, well and favorably known to a host of acquaintances in this community, was born in Phillips County, September 26, 1849, and during his long residence here had become well known for his many sterling qualities. He is progressive in his views, and the advanced state of the agricultural facilities of the county is due to him as well as to his neighbors...”
