Hi Sandra[
I'd be happy to share all that I have.
If you look on a map of north central Arkansas for Izard County, you'll find the small crossroads community of BROCKWELL. It was named for GEORGE A. BROCKWELL son of JAMES H. and nephew of your ggrandfather
Robert Isaac Brockwell. My mother's family homesteaded here in 1857 coming from the Harris Station area of Obion county. The James Brockwell family evidently immigrated about 1875.
I'll send an e-mail with some family history and write me with any particular questions you may have.
I'm thinking of making a trip to Kentucky this summer, perhaps you and I could meet in Union City or some more convienient location.
Charlie
