If I was close too you, I'd help you transcribe the books. I spent a day in Izard and Fulton counties a couple of weeks ago and would have liked to get too Melbourne to look at their information. When I stopped at Salem they told me that the courthouse there had burned in 1890 and information was lost up too that date.
I'm looking forward too seeing what your transcriptions show; please, please index as you go so it makes it easier to find the names.

Thanks to all who tried to help with this quandary, guess I'll have to
wait until I go to the National Archives an scroll through the census'
line by line. I have the 1860, 1880 and 1900 census for this family but
1870 is alluding me. Matilda is my great-grandfather Russel C. Haley's
sister. Having an awful time with this Haley family in 1870, can't find
Russell C. as a 13 year old with his parents, or the 3 older married
sisters, Vicy and John Duke, Sarah & John Elam and Matilda and Mack
Muncy,all who wound up in Pleasant Hill Township in 1880. Again thank to
I just got back from a 2 week visit to Sharp & Izard County, Haley
Family Reunion. While there, my cousin Betty Weaver and I spent several
days at the Melbourne Court House photographing the 9 oldest land tax
record books and the 3 oldest (1888,1889,1900) personal property tax
records. I will be extracting them over the next year (each book had 180
pgs) and will be happy to do any look-ups.
