Notes for William Killough

He went to Arkansas before 1830. They are found in the 1840-50-60-70 U. S. Census in White Co., AR, in Union Twp. and Royal Twp. A family story says she was a Chickasaw Indian and that during an Indian uprising the neighbors were ready to run her out
of town but, because he was so crazy about her, he was allowed to keep her. Another story is that William was upset with his family over their disapproval of his desired marriage to an Indian so he left home and went off into the woods and built a
stockade type shelter where he retreated at night to be safe from prowling wildlife. During the night, wolves tried to get to him and his horse by digging under the walls so he fought them off by chopping off their feet with his ax.
