Lewis Votcher and Hettie Dickens Lunsford were my grandparents. John Wesley Lunsford was the father of Lewis Votcher Lunsford. Please add the following information:

Lewis Votcher Lunsford was born in March 1902 and died in 1971. He actually died in a hospital in Fort Smith (Sebastian County) but he is buried in Oak Hill Cemetery in Booneville, Logan County, Arkansas, where he had lived since the early 1940s.

Hettie Dickens Lunsford was born in Scott County, Arkansas, on August 27, 1902, and died in June 1985 in Booneville, Logan County, Arkansas. She is buried at Oak Hill Cemetery in Booneville, Arkansas.

The two girls are my mother, Thelmo Lunsford Daniels (on the right being held by John Wesley Lunsford) b. 9/20/1924 in Blue Ball, Scott County, Arkansas d. 5/9/2005 at a hospital in Little Rock (Pulaski County), Arkansas, and is buried at Forest Hill Cemetery, Alexander, Arkansas; and my mother’s sister, Mary Neamo Lunsford Beckett (on the left being held by Hettie Lunsford) b. 8/2/1927 in Scott County, Arkansas d. 2006 (buried at a cemetery on Mt. Magazine).

After this photo was taken, other children born to Lewis Votcher and Hettie Lunsford were Hoover Lunsford b. 1929 d. 2005 in Bakersfield, CA; Kenneth Lunsford b. 2/25/1932 (now lives outside Brownsville, TX); L.V. Lunsford (I presume “Junior” but not for sure) (L.V. was only about a year old when he died – I’d have to look at a photo of his cemetery marker to be sure of the dates); their last child was Shirley Jo Lunsford Dorrough, b. 4/5/1941 and now lives in Russellville, AR. All of the children were born in Scott County, Arkansas.
