I surprised even myself with that one! <G>

If my message to John doesn't bounce back, maybe I will ask him. It was
quite a gathering of different people, wasn't it?

I can imagine that had we been able to take a time machine back to 1850 and
before, we would be surprised how much our ancestors and their families
spread out across all of AR, and it didn't seem to much distance to them,
since they wanted enough land to have large farms. Not like us, who stack
up side by side these days.

I didn't realize that Carroll became a part of Washington County. I know
some of it ended up being Boone County, where my Bledsoes were.

Actually, I found my John Lowry Bledsoe in Izard County land records in
1850, so apparently some of Carroll was once Izard. I can't keep them all
straight, can you? :)
