Below is a sample of a family biography included in the History of Sebastian County, Arkansas published by Goodspeed Publishing Company in 1889.  These biographies are valuable for genealogy research in discovering missing ancestors or filling in the details in a family tree. Family biographies often include far more information than can be found in a census record or obituary.  Details will vary with each biography but will often include the date and place of birth, parent names including mothers' maiden name, name of wife including maiden name, her parents' names, name of children (including spouses if married), former places of residence, occupation details, military service, church and social organization affiliations, and more.  There are often ancestry details included that cannot be found in any other type of genealogical record.

George L. Morris, a progressive farmer of Sebastian County, and the owner of 141 acres of land, fifty-six of which are under cultivation, is a son of Ira L. and Nancy J. (Simes) Morris, and was born in Wood County, Tex., January 10. 1860. At the age of six years he was brought to Sebastian County, Ark., and was reared in White Oak Township, his early life being spent in farming and attending the district schools. He received sufficient early education to enable him to transact all his business affairs, and at the age of twenty years was sent to school for the greater part of the year by his father, whose habit had been to give his sons their liberty at the age of twenty, or to school them one year. George L. accepted the latter, and made good use of his time while in school. Having lived a life of single blessedness until March 26, 1883, he was united in marriage to Miss Medora A. Kersey, a daughter of William Kersey, and by her is the father of three children: Clara E., Monta C. and Maud E. Mrs. Morris was born in Greenwood, Ark., March 25, 1861, and she and Mr. Morris are members of the Mount Zion Methodist Episcopal Church, South. Mr. Morris having been a steward in the same since he was seventeen years of age. He is a Democrat politically, and is considered by all an honorable, enterprising and intelligent young man.
