York, a prominent old resident of the county, residing near Johnsville, Ark., was born in Lincoln County, Ga., December 12, 1811, being a son of James and Jane (Florence) York, both of whom were born in Georgia, and died in Bradley County, Ark., in 1865 and 1864, respectively, whither they had come in 1849. They were the parents of six daughters and two sons. Nelson B. York was reared and educated in the State and county of his birth, receiving the advantages of the common schools, but in December 1844, was married in the State of Mississippi, to Miss L. J. Watson, a Kentuckian, born in 1825, and to them a family of nine children were born, four of whom are living: Lownds E., Charles C. (who began merchandising in Johnsville in 1886, and carries a stock of goods valued at $1,500; he is a young man, possessing excellent business qualificatrions, and is married), L. J. (wife of F. L. Jackson), and Eu- genie (wife of Samuel W. Godfrey). Mr. York has been one of the " sturdy sons of the soil " throughout life, and by the sweat of his brow has attained his present valuable property, and is now the owner of 1,400 acres of timber land, and has fifty acres cleared and under cultivation. He and wife are honored residents of Bradley County, and have long been members of the Baptist Church. Although seventy-nine years of age, he is yet hale and hearty, his memory especially ahowing no in- dications of the ravages of time. He has always been a Democrat in politics, and his first presi- dential wote was cast for Van Buren, in 1832."
