History & History Related Items

McNab, Arkansas, received its name from the family of Charles McNab (born in Perthshire, Scotland, in 1811), who bought land in the Red River valley three miles from Fulton, AK, in 1859. Charles and his wife (Liza Allen) and son, Charles Finlay McNab, moved from Spring Hill (Bossier parish) LA to Arkansas after the Civil War.

The government decided to put a post office in the little town in around 1893, and since Mrs. Charles F. McNab was the postmistress, she was allowed to name the post office. She gave it her family name. Charles McNab and his wife Liza Allen, his son Charles Finlay McNab (1859-1917) and his wife Mattie Crews Moss McNab are all buried in the old cemetery at Fulton. Charles West McNab (1884-1962) moved to Texarkana in 1927 and sold the last piece of family property in McNab in 1956.
