This was very interesting. Thank you for sharing. My name is Barbara Sampson Ellenburg. My paternal grandfather was mentioned in that article. His name was Pearson Sampson and the son that was spoken of would have been my father Carroll Franklin Sampson. My uncle, James A. "Jimmy" Sampson has alot of interesting family information to share and would really love to hear from you when you get a chance to visit. His number is 1-870-887-6603. He still lives in Laneburg, Arkansas. I'm sure he would be interested in any information you may have to share.

Thanks, Barbara. FYI, our connection is through Pearson's uncle, Francis "Frank" Frederick Sampson, who was living in Chickasha, Oklahoma, at the time of the reunion and did not attend.
