My great great grandfather Newton Jasper (N. J.) Geaslin moved to
Craighead Co. about 1882, and died there in 1887.  I have been to the
court house there in Jonesboro.  I know that he bought two different
pieces of land near Jonesboro, and that he died without leaving a will.
A James Williams was appointed administrator of his estate, but I seem
to have lost the family for several years after that.  I am trying to
find out more about what happened to him, and especially what happened
to his widow and minor children.  Other than my great grandfather and
one of his brother's, I am stumped.
