*1803 - The sparse population of the area consisted of French hunters, Cherokee, and a few English frontiersmen. *1830s - The Cherokee were removed via the Trail of Tear and settlers from Tennessee, Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky, and Missouri moved in. *1862 November 15 - The Arkansas General Assembly created Cross County. *1882 - The first railroad was completed across Cross County.
*1900-1927 - The growth of Vanndale and Wynne along the railroad balanced the decline of river cities such as Wittsburg. This transfer of population was increased by flooding in the river valley when the St. Francis River broke through its levees in 1912 and 1913, and especially in the Flood of 1927.
