More Old Families
in Lawrence Co., AR

Watts were pioneers, also about the Big Lick included Wilse, Bennett, Williams,Thomas, George, Mattie and Timmie.
The Thomas Watts family is around Opposition. A story of old Grandfather Watts
about skinning coons,  “It is just that way, when my persimmon
pond freezes over, the coons come and sit about eating the persimmons and freeze to the pond. I can prove by Mattie and the children, that I
would take my butcher knife and go along, hack them over the head and they would jump out of their hides.
” The Big Lick Jeff Honey lived at the Big Lick in the large log building with port holes in the upper story.
This establishes proof that it was built at a time when Indians were still in the country.
There was another such building on Osburn Creek in Sharp County.
These structures were used during the Civil War for storehouses.
Honey had several outbuildings which were burned during the early 80’s. I remember an investigation of it by my father’s
J.P. Court, but nothing came of it.
There should be several Honeys in Lawrence County. The Big Lick is a large, natural salty place, where Deer came.
Holders should be next with the
Goings and Halsteads. I think they came from Georgia.

Pleasant Going and Halstead were pioneer Methodist ministers.
Going was the father of my mother-in-law, Mrs. Emerine Going Helms.
He was a circuit rider for many years. Pleasant Going’s wife died in 1859 and his large family of children were cared for by the Holders,
until his death in the war.
Eunice Going, a sister of Pleasant Going, first married James Blackwell, father of Wm. Blackwell who had a store at Ravenden in 1900
and was a drummer for many years. Her second husband was Grandfather Bennett Holder. In her old age, my went on a cold
night to the home of her son-in-law, Frank Barker, to marry her to Uncle Charlie Parks. I think one of the Goings has several
grandchildren in Lawrence County. I am not sure, but believe that this Bennett Holder was the father of all I will name.
They all settled about Friendship, but later moved north to Wells Creek, southwest of Opposition.
Uncle Henry J. Holder, during the war, lived on the Helms place, south of Friendship. For many years, he was sheriff and deputy
in the county.
He had two sets of children. first came Berry, Babe and Dow. Berry moved to Boone County. Babe died near Portia years ago.
Dow died last year at Imboden. The second group were Frank, George, Whit, Nancy, Linn, Ball, and Toy. The last three are still living.
The old Wells place is now known as the Holder Place.
