Misc. Notes
By 1814 Robert and Sally migrated to Arkansas along with his brothers, Mark and Richard (and perhaps others) where Governor Miller appointed Robert, along with Roane, and James Billingsly to locate a site for the Pulaski County courthouse. Roane and Robert agreed on Little Rock and the Circuit Court agreed. That ended the Pulaski contest and gave Little Rock security and a chance to grow. Col. Robert Bean has been described as a pioneer of the Arkansas Territory. He ran the first keel boat up the White River and established himself at the mouth Polk Bayou near present day Batesville in 1814.
