Senator Solon BORLAND, M D

Was Solon Borland, M D involved in the naming of Dallas County, Arkansas??

Interesting is the fact that Colonel Solon BORLAND (1811VA-1864TX) was a personal friend to Governor James Polk of Tennessee, later campaigned as editor of the Arkansas Banner in 1843, for him to be President of United States and undoubtedly his V P George Dallas, whose name adorns the county in which Solon and family resided many years. Solon then, in 1848, served in the United States Senate under President Polk and Vice President Dallas.

Makes me wonder if Solon may have had something to do with the naming of Dallas County?
