I know of a Richard "Dick" Counts that once lived in the central Arkansas area. I believe he would have been born in the late 1880's or early 1890's. He was once married to a Cumi A. Counts (sorry, I don't have her maiden name)she was born in 1891 and died in 1921. I think he remarried after this and moved, I can check with a cousin on this if you want me to. Let me know if you think this might be a lead.

The Richard "Dick" Counts I have was born around central AR, worked for the railroad, his father was Bill Counts. I would guess Richard was born around 1900-1910. Does not seem to be the same one. Bill's parents lived north of Little Rock at a place called Plainview. Let me know if you find any connection. I am blocked on locating a John Milton Counts born abt 1865 to Bill Counts of Plainview. But talked to an older cousin today that had a little more info.
