Joseph Glosson came to Prospect Bluff shortly before the Civil War in a wagon train of 18 families from North Carolina and became a successful blacksmith in the community that was later known as Judsonia.   This was his home, located in what is now Orr Park.  The scene is 1909, and the woman in the picture is Joe's daughter-in-law Cora Busby Glosson, wife of George Glosson.  The baby in the carriage is one-year-old Lonnie who became a nationally famous harmonica player.  (See "Lonnie Glosson, Harmonica Ambassador.")
