Pope County AR Library Genealogy Dept Receives $86,910

Thank you, Laura Shull

The Pope County Library board expressed pleasure at receiving the check from Laura Shull's estate, at the monthly meeting Wednesday, Aug. 15. The check, for $86,910.49, was from the final distribution sale of Ms. Shull's property, which she bequeathed to the Katie Murdoch Genealogy and History department at the Russellville branch of the Pope County Library, where she worked for several years.

Ms. Shull died Dec. 9 at age 69. She had been a part-time worker in the history and genealogy department of the library for several years after retiring as a longtime reporter for The Courier newspaper. She was also an avid researcher for the Pope County Historical Association, which she served as quarterly editor for several years.
