Vansickles in South Arkansas (Lafayette, Columbia, Ouachita Co)

Help!!! I am trying to find information on the Vansickles in South Arkansas (Lafayette Co., Columbia Co., Ouachita Co.).

My grandfather, John Chunning Vansickle (b. 04/02/1872) married Alice Lee Friday (b. 03/01/1879). They lived at Lamartine, in Lafayette County. John's father, Benjamin Vansickle married Rissa Proctor(family from Camden, AR) and settled at Buena Vista in Ouachita County. They had 4 children, George, Fannie, Ollie, and John. It is believed George, Fannie, and Ollie went to Texas. John stayed in Arkansas. Benjamin and Rissa are buried at Buena Vista Cem.

I believe Benjamin had 3 brothers. One of the boys owned a gambling boat. When it burnt, he got a livestock boat and transported both livestock and the U.S. Mail up and down Ouachita River and to New Orleans, LA.

If you have any information on anyone before John, please tell me. Thank you !!!!
