After wasting months searching the Marvell, AR census files from 1860-1930, I recently discovered that many of our kindred are actually enumerated in the census files for Hickory Ridge township, Phillips County, AR. I've posted a Family Census Index with surnames and links to the appropriate census images. Check the "Family History Page" frequently, as I am constantly posting new information.

    Blacks in War

Our role in U.S. Wars

Powhatan Blake was presented with the Congressional Medal of Honor for his service during the Civil War. He and other brave men fought to form a more perfect union. Later the Harlem Hellfighters or the 369th infantry fought bravely in WWI alongside the French. The French treated them well and presented them with numerous awards. In WWII, the 761st tank battalion helped to free France and Europe from Hitler's grip. We salute these black soldiers and all that they have done to improve America's position on the world stage.
