Rutherfordton Community News

I would like to find any relatives of Joseph Head of Springdale, Arkansas, circa. 1860-1828. They owned some lakeside farmland in Springdale near Head's Ford with Jaybird Schoolhouse on it, which I believe burned down in the 1930's.. I would very much appreciate any pictures or other history of the family and its descendants. The family came to Springdale in about 1856 from Rutherford County, North Carolina, directly to this piece of property. My father now owns this same land and my sisters and myself are very anxious to learn anything we possibly can...........
Please e-mail me with any information at:
Fayetteville, Arkansas
