Birth: 1853
Death: 1918

William Albert "Bill" Acord (1853-1918) ran the Family Grist Mill on Little Mulberry Creek, Acord Hollow, Johnson County, Arkansas after his grandparents, John and Sarah Turner Acord, moved to Texas during the Civil War. After his father Calvin died he was appointed postmaster at Cobbsville, Arkansas on 24 Jan 1881. He was a Justice of the Peace for nearly 30 years, in "Hill Township". He estimated he had united over 2,000 people in Marriage. As a special deputy he once recognized a criminal by a scar on his face, hiding in a snake pit of a Road Show. He was a 32nd degree Mason, and was appointed special agent for the Mason's Fraternal Accident Association of America, and was authorized to organize local membership in the town of Eubank Mills. He owned several farms in Johnson County, in what is now Ozark National Forest. He had 14 children, and one died at birth
