MILLER COUNTY OFFICIALS
Arkansas side of Texarkana


Information below came from A History of Texarkana  and Bowie & Miller Counties Texas--Arkansas by Barbara Overton Chandler & J. Ed Howe.  1939 Texarkana, Texas-Arkansas.
 
This book can be found at the Texarkana Library.
 
In my research I have found myself referring back to this book for help in locating more information and I thought it should be on line so all could benefit from the hard work these two put in working on this book.  Typed up for site by Tresa Dickey Underwood. 
 
Anything added will have * beside it.  Or if it is after 1939 it will be from research done or submitted information.
 
Also added is information send in by Betty Sharp from information from a book  HISTORICAL REPORT of the SECRETARY of STATE, 1958, Published by, C. G. Hall Secretary of State, Editor-in-Chief, C. Armitage Harper, Associate Editors, D. D. Glover, Jr., Larry Curry, Printed and Bound in Arkansas, U. S. A. 1958  

 Sometimes conflicting information comes from different sources.  I am not to say which is right and which is wrong, I just want to report the info found and submitted.
