About this project

Using Alexander Standridge, my fourth great grandfather, as a case study, this research project aims to discover fresh insights into motivating factors behind individuals migrating from the trans-Appalachian west into territorial Arkansas. Alexander’s migration led him to the early Arkansas territory region that became Carrollton township, in Carroll County.

If you have any information you would like to share on Alexander Standridge or the trans-Appalachian west migration, I would love to hear from you. Thank you for visiting.
