Trying to find info on the family of Samuel Arbuckle who was one of the early settlers of Higginsport. Looking for info around 1819. Here's what I have so far if it helps. Also any old cemetaries there that have been transcribed??
1820 Census Brown Co.,OH 1310.gif
Samuel Arbuckle Isearch-cgi 1.20.06 (File: part5.txt)
BROWN COUNTY OHIO - HISTORY: Part 5 (published 1898)
HIGGINSPORT is on the Ohio at the mouth of White Oak creek. It was laid out in 1816 by Col. Robert Higgins, a native of Pennsylvania and an officer in the American Revolution. In 1819 the families there were Colonel Higgins, Stephen Colvin, John and James Cochran, Mr. Arbuckle and James Norris. It has 1 Christian, 1 Methodist, 1 Presbyterian, 1 Colored Methodist, 1 German Methodist, 1 German Reformed church. In 1840 the population was 393; in 1880, 862. It has 17 tobacco warehouses and about 30 tobacco-buyers who annually ship about two millions of pounds.

this was Samuel as he was there giving consent to marriage of Elizabeth Arbuckle and Samuel McCoy, will have to check further and on 1820 Brown Co., OH census .
