Thanks, Selma! I'll definitely take a look at the book.

Interestingly, it sounds as if the author doesn't realize that the scarcity of free blacks in AR in 1860 was due to the fact that the state had passed a law in 1858 or 59 kicking them all out....There were quite a few there before that, some of them related to me.
