I have a connection to the area, My great grandmother was a Deaton then married a Bob Bolen guessing around the 1900's or before, they ended up in McDougal Ark. with several sons and one daughter,my grandma Dessie Bolen-Gribble. Also a great uncle named Charlie Robinson fron Reno who had some children . Do not know much else except hearing my grandparents speak of the area called Heelstring.
I had family from Heelstring, Arkansas. They supposedly helped settle the area. Thomas N Pyburn was the head of household. He was a farmer in Nelson Township in 1910.
Does anyone have a history of Heelstring, a list of families who lived there? Any help would be appreciated.
