Searcy County
The county was formed December 13, 1838, from a portion of Marion County and named for Richard Searcy, the first clerk and judge in the Arkansas Territory.

The first county seat was Lebanon, but Marshall (originally Burrowville) became the seat of justice in 1856.
Courthouse fires are reported in 1864, 1877, and 1885; records are reportedly complete since 1885, with some earlier.

The county seat is Marshall.

Leslie ~ Marshall (county seat)
Gilbert ~ Pindall ~ St. Joe

 The city of Searcy, Arkansas, some seventy miles away, is not a part of Searcy County.
