Alexander’s Stray Mare

Full Title: Alexander’s Stray Mare: Tracing an Ancestor from Georgia to Pre-territorial Arkansas

Context: I am researching and tracing the movements of my fourth great grandfather, Alexander Standridge, as a case study to gain insights into motivating factors behind individuals migrating from the trans-Appalachian west to the region of Arkansas territory that became Carroll County.

I discovered this advertisement in the Arkansas Gazette (Arkansas Post, Arkansas), dated 17 Nov 1834. Note: ‘A. T.’ denotes Arkansas Territory.  In 1834, Arkansas was not yet a state.
