Subject: [ARIZARD-L] 1920s Guion sandmill workers - see list of surnames

My cousin; Bob Hudson shared a wonderful picture with me this morning. It was given to him by Evelyn Smith - widow of Earl Smith of Yellville.
Earl Smith's father was Everett Smith - and a newly found brother to my grandfather; Sherman Smith and Bob Hudon's grandfather; Lewis Smith.
So, I have now a face to two brothers of my grandfather's. Lewis and Everett.
Anyway, the picture is taken of a group of employees of the Guion Sand Mine, in the 1920s. My mother was born there in 1918 - at Guion. It appears that my grandfather - Mother's father; Sherman was not a mine worker. Too busy with stills and cotton, I think.
But, for any of you interested - the following men are pictured:
Baker George's son (unnamed given name?)
Cloud Owens (Claud?)
W. O. Tilton
The photograph was printed in a newspaper evidently and by some of the men's names, there are cause of deaths - for those of you interested in knowing.
If anyone wants to see this photograph - I'd be glad to forward it - as I am sure that Bob would not mind.
Kind of cool to see....................
