The fall 2015 issue of the Faulkner County Historical Society’s Faulkner Facts and Fiddlings will be available soon. It will feature the research and writings of Charles D. Parsons who is steeped in the history of the families, the institutions, the local history, and the genealogy of Harve Township in Faulkner County. He is an eighth generation resident of Holland and a social studies teacher at Greenbrier High School.
One article in this issue covers the shooting and death in the county that happened over 100 years ago. Many native or well-known family names of this township and county are found in the story.
Another article tells the story of a man who, along with a partner, built Faulkner County’s first courthouse in 1878. The third piece by Parsons reports on several cemeteries in Harve Township, both maintained and neglected.
Faulkner County Museum Director Lynita Langley-Ware gives an update on “Doin’s at the Museum.”
The issue will soon be available for sale for $4 at the museum and at the Faulkner County Library in Conway. The Faulkner County Historical Society is currently accepting memberships for calendar 2016, and the two journal editions will be included with a membership.
