Zinc which is located in Boone County, Arkansas (County Seat Harrison), was originally a mining town in which zinc was mined. Boone County was formed in 1869 and the part that Zinc is in came out of Marion County. The town originally was in Blyth Township but sometime between 1910 to 1920 Zinc Township was created. Yes there are census records for the area, for Boone County they start with 1870 and go to 1930, but for the state of Arkansas you can find them beginning in 1830. Here is the website where you can find Boone County Cemeteries:

Zinc does still exist today, but it is a place that if you blink you will miss it.
