If possible, send me the info on W.P. Cabaniss to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
. A text file will be just fine.
An Okie? Where 'bouts? I lived in Fort Smith, AR, for 12 years and had some client contact in some parts of Oklahoma. My wife's mother, brother, and sister live in Oklahoma, too.
And, by the way, where is Cerro Gorda, AR? Is that somewhere near Hempstead County, AR? I know the Sanford Cabaniss family passed through the area.
"...she also says its written in a strange script and its really hard to read." I don't know if your aunt is talking about just plain old poor hand writing or some of that beautiful penmanship that just doesn't seem to exist any more. My mother has that flowing penmanship that she tried to teach me as a kid. Well, she failed in that effort. I think it is so beautiful and wish I could do it.
