1882 Tax List Mulberry Twp, Franklin Co. Arkansas, USA


This image shows James Polk Cook and his brother Joseph Knox Cook listed on the 1882 Tax list in the Mulberry Township of Franklin County Arkansas.  J.K. Cook's daughter Melzora A Cook married J B Reid on the 15th of November 1881.  This was the same day that J P. Cook's step daughter Tennessee Ferguson married Hugh Clawson.  Both couples applied for marriage licenses on the 14th.  I'm still looking for proof but I feel certain that Tennie & Hugh must have annulled their marriage or divorced because she marries Henry Hill on the 1st of September 1886 under her maiden name of Ferguson.  I did not find Hugh Clawson on this Tax list but did notice that J B Reid was listed but like J K Cook's entry it doesn't have the PAID notation beside it.  They end up back in Tennessee and may have went back not long after the marriage.  Wm Clifford Cook(father of J.P Cook & J.K. Cook) died on the 1st of Jan 1882.  Still a lot of research needed on all of these folks. 

The 1884 Tax list has J P Cook listed in White Oak township of Franklin Co Arkansas
