McGintys from MS to AR
Posted by: Robert McGinty (ID *****4146) Date: September 01, 2008 at 05:20:23

My Grand Father Frank McGinty told me back in the late 1930s that his GF Joseph McGinty came to AR up the MS River
and the AR River on a steam boat. Joseph and family got off
the boat somewhere near the Cadron Settlement. The Cadron
Settlement was located at the confluence of the AR River
and the Cadron Creek about five miles West of present day
Conway, AR. My GF Frank's brother Theordor told me in 1972
that his father, Thomas McGinty was born near the forks of
the two Cadrons (North Cadron & East Cadron) located about
three miles SW of Wooster, AR. We don't know when Joseph
McGinty came to AR from MS but, land records show he was
living in Conway CO. AR in 1842 as was his son Robert Newton. We have census records that say Thomas McGinty was
born in 1844 and from personal testimony by Theordor McGinty at the "Forks of the Cadrons) Thomas died Feb. 26,
1916 and is buried in the McGinty Cemetery McGintytown,
AR.
