Back in October 2015, I wrote about Robert Foster Flatt (formerly Reamus Foster Flatt), older half-brother of my 3rd-great-grandmother Nancy Jane Flatt. I missed these articles at the time, showing Robert was pardoned in 1886 by Arkansas Governor Simon Pollard Hughes Jr. for selling liquor without a license. The $200 fine was remitted back to Flatt.
In 1896, Robert was involved in another case against the State. This was appealed from Benton County Circuit Court to the Arkansas Supreme Court. The decision was affirmed on 6 February 1897. I do not know what the case was about.
