Thank you. I took what you posted, Indigent Confederate Families, and did a Google search. I found indeed there is a book, "Confederate indigent families lists of Texas 1863-1865", by Linda Mearse. They have a copy in the FHL in SLC. But, the information is also online at the TX State Lib & Arch Commission site:

I looked to see who was listed for some of the counties on which I'm working, then did a search through the alphabetical list, too. Very interesting. I plan on playing around with some of the names listed. None of my direct line, but I wasn't surprised, they probably didn't qualify for an indigent list, owned too much land.

As for AR I did a similar Google search and found a site that may have a list, to view you have to have an account. BUT, they give the source -- The Arkansas Historical Quarterly > Vol. 14, No. 2, Summer, 1955 -- So, if you can find a copy of that periodical maybe it has the list???? Otherwise, the Google search looked mostly like county by county records for AR.

Likewise a keyword search on the FHL catalog, up came three AR counties.

I was too focused in on just "salt list" and didn't think about an indigent list. Thank you for your suggestion.

Happy Hunting (^_^)
