I’m not related to any member of this family.

1940 is the last available census at this time.


ARK Vital Records -
WHEN ARK required birth & death registrations =1914
When did ARK begin to issue birth & death certificates =1914

Are there any restrictions to ordering these records??? Yes, we have eligibility requirements for each record type. Death records over 50 years old are open and do not have restrictions.

How far back do the marriage records go = 1917

Believe Joseph Goolsby 1849 - 1878 died in 1898 and not 1878.
You have a typo.
If these are not his children - then WHO's are they ??

NOTE -
There is a 20 yr. gap in the census records [1880 - 1900] as the 1890 census was burned in the 1920's. Add 20 yrs to everyone's age for the 1900 census.
