Have you tried contacting the library in West Plains? They are wonderful
and will do research for a low price. Try to contact Kay Huff there, she
did great research for me. I don't have their phone number right now, but
you can call your own local library and ask for the W.P. library number.
All libraries have a list of other libraries.
