Warren Newsbriefs
Extracted From The Arkansas Gazette

During the mid 1850s, the Arkansas Gazette began receiving news from Bradley County that was printed in the newspaper. Often the article was written by a person in the form of a letter or, later on, as newsworthy events from Warren. During the early period of the paper, the "Warren Waifs" were often seen in the daily edition. Later came the "News from Warren," and later these articles were entitled "Warren Newsbriefs."

William Francis Mack and W.S. Finch were the leading correspondents from the county until around 1900. They wrote of the weather, crops, deaths, marriages, sickness, current events. Often found were accounts of the rapid growth of Warren.

Sources of history for Bradley County are Goodspeed's History of Arkansas Counties, Gatewood's History and, of course, what is gleaned from courthouse records.

The Warren Newsbriefs give a different outlook on the county and its people. In the period that has been extracted, one hundred notices of deaths, forty marriages, and numerous newsworthy events can be found.

A glimpse of post-Civil War life is noted by the declaration of Martial Law by Gov. Powell Clayton. Letters from John M. Bradley are also included.

The county newspaper archives were lost in a fire, prior to 1930, and these newsbriefs fill a large void for Bradley County researchers.
