The book from which these censuses were taken were published by Mrs. Joseph Hilliard Stroud.  As she is buried at Tillar Cemetery, I include most of her obituary here in memory of Mrs. Stroud.

 

Marion McKinney Stroud, 92, of Kirkwood, Mo., died March 2, 1998, at a Kirkwood nursing home.  A retired teacher, she had lived in McGehee, Ark., until 1991 before moving to St. Louis.  She was born in England, Ark., a daughter of the Rev. E.J.A. McKinney, an historian of the Southern Baptists in Arkansas.  She grew up in Little Rock and attended Little Rock High School which later became Central High School.  She received an associate’s degree from Central Baptist College at Conway, Ark., and did further study in several Arkansas schools.  She moved to Southeast Arkansas where she taught in Tillar, McArthur, Desha Central and McGehee.  She and her husband owned and operated a farm near McArthur.  She joined First Methodist Church at McGehee and was a Sunday School teacher and officer of the church.  She edited 17 annual publications for the Desha County Historical Society and was its president for many years.  She was a member of the McGehee Chamber of Commerce and Desha County Library Board.  In 1975, she was named McGehee’s “Woman of the Year.”  She married Joseph Hillard Stroud in 1924.  He preceded her in death in 1974.
