Notes for W
ILLIAM A TRANTHAM:
When William was about 2 yrs old, his parents moved into Carroll County, ARK to settle in that area that would become known as Green Forest after the Civil War as a community began to develop. While his childhood was probably no different then those of his contemporaries, certainly the Civil War had to be one of the monumental memories of those years. He was ten years of age when the war started and was fourteen when it ended so he was old enough to have very vivid memories of that national confrontation as it was enacted in Carroll County. Also he would certainly remember that his father gave his life for the Confederacy during that War. Alfred Burney Trantham served in Company A, 3rd regiment, Arkansas Volunteers, and he was shot from ambush during January of 1863, just outside Carroll County, Arkansas by Union soldiers who served under the command of General Heron. After his father's death, Williams
mother would move the family back to Missouri for their own safety. William A. Trantham married Mary M. Grgory on Sept 8, 1870, in AR. Mary had been born on Aug 31, 1847 but family researchers are yet to determine who her parents were, or where she was born. After their marriage, William and Mary would live their lives in Carroll County and she would bare 7 children in Carroll County.

Notes for H
ENRY TRANTHAM:
Henry would return to Carroll County also. It was here that he met, courted and fell in love with the young woman who would become his wife. Elizabeth "Lizzie" Martin. Both Henry and Lizzie were the children of ministers. However, a family story has survived to state that during their courtship Henry would sit outside on Sunday mornings shooting bottles off the fence surrounding the church while Lizzie sat inside for the worship service. Then on that day in August of 1888, when the couple decided to marry Henry rode up to Lizzie's front porch on his horse, gathered Lizzie up, and they rode off together to be married. Henry and Elizabeth repeated their marriage vows on Aug 9, 1888 in the Little Star community of Carroll County. 10 children were born to this union.
