I am looking for info on my great-grandfather's parents. My great-grandfather was Owen Leroy Elder, who went by "Leroy" or "Roy". He was born 11 March 1883 in Brinkley, Monroe co., AR. He married Maude Wilkinson on 2 Feb. 1903. His father supposedly was also named Owen Leroy Elder, he died at about 37-39 years old. His mother was supposedly named Louise Brown, and she supposedly later married a J.A. Walker born 13 Dec. 1851 & died 27 April 1921. Louise & J.A. supposedly had a daughter named Anna Louise.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hi Karen,
I haven't been able to find anything online which matches your
query. Do you have any other locations for the 1903 marriage
or Death location for either Owen b. 1883 or his father?
Or Maude Wilkinson ELDER death location?

Looking at online records, didn't find ELDER here:
MONROE CO AR - Genealogy records:
at
http://www.myarkansasgenealogy.com/ar_county/mro.htm

Monroe County Clerk has Marriage Records from 1850 and Probate Records from 1829 and is located at 123 Madison Street, Clarendon, 72029; (870) 747-3632 .
Although probate court is a court of equity and is presided over by the chancery judge, prior to 1937 it was a function of the county court, and under the amended procedure, the county clerk still operates ad the clerk of the probate court.
As clerk to the probate court, the clerk files all instruments making them a matter of record in descendent estate cases, and swears in all witnesses in contested estates. The clerk, also in this capacity, maintains all records relative to adoptions and guardianship cases within the county.

There are a few online databases for Court, Land and Probate Records which include: Arkansas Marriages, 1779-1992, Arkansas Marriages, 1820-1949, Arkansas Marriages to 1850, Arkansas Marriages, 1851-1900 and Arkansas Divorce Index, 1923-1939. You may also search the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) which does not cover Arkansas but does cover surrounding states. Many pioneers and settelers bought land from the government instead of individuals.
