History of Lonoke County

Lonoke County was formed on April 16, 1873.
It was named for a "lone oak" tree that stood on the site of the present county seat and was used as a local landmark.

The county seat is at Lonoke.

Lonoke County was formed on April 16, 1873 from Pulaski County and Prairie County, and was named as a corruption of "lone oak", after a large red oak in the area that had been used by a surveyor to lay out the Memphis and Little Rock Railroad.

The county seat is Lonoke and largest city is Cabot.

We're looking for DATA for this site!!!

We're looking for the "raw data" folks can use to build their family trees (rather than the actual trees themselves). This includes the transcribed data from the vital records, biographies from the county histories as well as the county history information itself, transcriptions of obituaries, burial data from cemetery trompings and/or readings, the data from military pensions and other service records; enumerations from census years, any newspaper gleanings for the family members including birth announcements, marriage announcements, death notices/obits and anything in between.
