Hi, Sandra. My maternal ancestors are Starks of African American decent. Our family lived in Clark and Dallas Counties. I believe Center Point is close by. I know of a George Starks of Crossett Arkansas, who is now deceased, but he was probably born around the time you mentioned. He was known as "Dead Body" Starks. My grandfather, Charlie Starks thought he was a cousin who had to leave Dallas County when he was very young. Good Luck. I have traced my family back to 1860 to a Mary (Ellen) Reynolds who married my ggfather, Robert (Bob) Starks.
