You got the Beck, Tipton and Joe Smith, Rusts, and Chandlers all living in a
I'll bet you Luther Chandler is one of the Chandlers from across the river
where the others lived.
Even the Brancums and the Bowmans that lived in the same row of houses may
be from over in those hills. There were a lot of them over there in the same
What could all these people have left Baxter County for before 1920 that put
them in the Sand Springs, OK area ???
Most of these people only lived to be a little over 50 years of age, why ???

Homer Earl Smith at least I think this is the one called Frog. Also I think
I sent this before
Homer Earl Smith s/o Ethel Smith m. Sindey Sue Hutcheson, d/o Dr. & Mrs V.
E. HUTCHESON ON Jun 3, in Gainesville, Mo.Don't forget this is just across
the line in MO. (newspaper Jul 17, 1942) may have been when he came back to
Mt Home area.
HOMER E SMITH 20 Dec 1922 05 Oct 1989
72653 (Mountain Home, Baxter, AR)
This is the one that I wondered how he got his nam Homer. I ask you if there
