It seems that I have heard you Baxter Co. folks talk about this Cowart
before or a Cowart. Did it have to do with Lela Sinor Melton's murder
trial? Was he the sheriff or the defense attorney?
Or as usual.......am I confused?
The only Cowart that I knew of really was the one called Shug that married a
Gist. I had a couple of Gist sisters marry a couple of my Sinor brothers.
You know how it goes........
Thanks alot, Vera.
