ABBOTT, William G. - Co. B, Cypert's Ark Inf, CSA; buried at Summer Cemetery, Pulaski Co., AR

ACKERTON, T.G. - Co. D, 11th Ark Inf, CSA; died 26 Apr 1862; buried at Camp Butler, Springfield, IL

ACORD, Francis Marion - Pvt, Co. K, 2nd Ark Inf, USA; born in Roane Co., TN in 1832; in 1849 migrated with parents to Mulberry Township, Randolph Co., AR; married Elizabeth Horner on 10 Jan 1853; Elizabeth Horner was born 10 Jul 1835 in Perryville, Perry Co., TN daughter of Spencer Horner and Permelia Turner; he was 5'6" tall with dark complexion, blue eyes, and black hair; Francis and Elizabeth farmed on the western end of Acord Hollow near the town of Friley along the Little Mulberry Creek; mustered into the 10th Ark Militia at Clarksville, AR at the outbreak of hostilities; after militias were turned over to Confederate control his brother William Gordon Acord joined a Confederate unit; Francis later joined Union infantry at Clarksville on 24 Jan 1864 at the urging of his Horner in-laws; That winter while Francis was away, Elizabeth contracted the measles. She had two young sons to care for requiring her to spend long hours out in the cold chopping wood and doing other chores. As a result, she became very ill. Hearing of the situation Elizabeth's sister-in-law Angeline Cook, wife of Francis' brother Calvin Acord, came on a mule from the other end of Acord Hollow. There was little that Angeline could do for Elizabeth except take the boys home with her. She wrapped young Christopher in her apron and John rode on the back. Soon thereafter, Elizabeth succumbed to pneumonia on March 1st 1864. Francis was stationed at Lewisburg Ridge, near the present day town of Morrilton, Pope County, Arkansas where he died on April 28th 1864, just five months after the death of his wife. There is some disagreement among researchers about his cause of death. His military records do not state that he was killed in action, though his unit was involved in a skirmish near a bridge at Petit Jean some two weeks before his death. It is generally believed that he contracted measles or typhoid fever. Two of his brothers-in-law, serving in the same unit, died within two weeks. He was buried near the encampment in a temporary graveyard with wooden markers. After the war the graveyard was moved but the markers had disintegrated so Francis' final resting place is unknown. An affidavit signed by his fellow soldiers and filed with the pension application for his sons states: "That said Acord was a man of personal moral and good habits, in fact, more so than most soldiers in camp."; Contact: Hartsel Gerald Acord
