The same act of the legislature which created Lee County also provided that the temporary seat of justice for the new county should be located at Marianna, and an election was held to elect commisioners, whose duty it was to decide on the location of the courthouse. A lot was purchased near the center of the town, and a frame building erected to be used for court purposes until the present building could be finished. Prior to 1873, Lee County was a part of four other counties, Phillips, Monroe, St. Francis, and Crittenden.
At the onset of the Civil War, Lee County was still a part of it's parent counties, and about 300 men went into the service of the Confederate Army. However, only a small number ever returned. D. C. Govan, T. C. Anderson and B. C. Brasher were the commanders of troops from this area, who were first attached to Hindman's legion, and then to the Second Arkansas Regiment of Calvary.
Lee County was, at one time, the home of John A. Murrell, outlaw. He and his gang
preyed upon the flat-boat navigators of the Mississsippi.
