Biography of Robert Dow England

ROBERT DOW ENGLAND. In no line of commerce or in no professional calling are the requirements more exacting than in the vocation followed by the druggist, and among the efficient men engaged in that business in Quitman, Arkansas, is Robert Dow England, who conducts an attractively and neatly fitted store which is stocked with a superior line of fresh drugs, medicines, chemicals, toilet articles, etc., which will compare favorably with any similar establishment in the county. He owes his nativity to Faulkner County, Arkansas, where he first saw the light January 18, 1860, a son of John and Lovesta (Hamilton) England, both of whom were born in East Tennessee. The mother is now a resident of Quitman, Arkansas, but the father died in 1871, at the age of fifty-five years. He was a farmer by occupation and his eldest son was in the Confederate service. Robert Dow England was among the youngest of a family of thirteen children, and his literary ‘education was acquired in Quitman College.

A son is deceased. In addition to his other enterprises, Mr. England continued his farming operations in Faulkner County until 1886, on a portion of the farm left him by his father, but since that...

Biographies of the Cherokee Indians

Whatever may be their origins in antiquity, the Cherokees are generally thought to be a Southeastern tribe, with roots in Georgia, North Carolina, and Tennessee, among other states, though many Cherokees are identified today with Oklahoma, to which they had been forcibly removed by treaty in the 1830s, or with the lands of the Eastern Band of Cherokees in western North Carolina. The largest of the so-called Five Civilized Tribes, which also included Choctaws, Chickasaws, Creeks, and Seminoles, the Cherokees were the first tribe to have a written language, and by 1820 they had even adopted a form of government resembling that of the United States. It is a lesser known fact that there was considerably more intermarriage between Cherokees and Whites than any other tribe, so they have a genealogical significance far out of proportion to their historical numbers. There is also a great deal of genealogical data on the Cherokees, mostly in the form of census records and enrollment records. All of which is to point out the abundance of sources available to Emmet Starr when he came to pen his classic History of the Cherokee Indians and Their Legends and Folklore. Not to diminish Mr. Starr’s contribution in writing about the early Cherokees, their constitution, treaties with the federal government, land transactions, school system, migration and resettlement, committees, councils, and officials, religion, language, and culture, and a host of other topics upon which he writes eloquently, but his stated purpose in writing the History was “to make it as near a personal history and biography of as many Cherokees as possible.” And in fact more than...
