These towns are what I call boarder towns, into other states , I had to put up county maps so I could find my people , they seam to come in and out of the Arkansas counties as they boarder . I wish I could be more help. THe Missouri death index is on line and you can check there, many of the old towns in the Boot hill of Missouri only have libraries open a half day a week or one day a week, it is very poor there. Like looking a Ghost towns. Very sad. I was raised in Manila Arkansas for 12 years.
