I couldn't be happier seeing these!!! You don't know how much these mean to me.
I know that when they are revealed to my family there will be some tears shed.

Thank you again for working with me on these.

Photo taken in 1956
The tall man on the left is my Great Uncle Buster Scott. He was a one of a kind man. I remember staying at his 2 room shack in the middle of nowhere Snowball, Arkansas. His house is at the end of the road and borders the Buffalo National River. My family owned the majority of the land on the river in Searcy County Arkansas. It was taken by order of Pres Nixon in the 70's. They gave "fair market value" to the families and stole their homes. My Great Grandfather's family was removed at gunpoint by the National Guard when they wouldn't leave their home.

The man on the right was my Grandpa Lee Campbell. He taught me all he could about hunting, fishing, & country living before he died in the late 80's. He was a very respected man and will always be missed by his friends and family. He died doing what he loved. He was fishing on the White River for trout at Buffalo City, AR. The waters from the damn got to be too much and his anchor snagged. He was thrown from the boat and was last seen by my Uncle & Aunt as they made it safely to shore. He was hanging onto a fuel tank as he floated down the river. It was a sad day for the Campbell family.

One of these calls will be with me every trip I make into the woods from now on. The other will be put up for a family auction at our family reunion. The money from that will be placed towards paying taxes and upkeep on the remaining farm land that still belongs to our family. I expect this to be the treasure of the auction.

Through your work, my Grandpa & Great Uncle will again get to hunt with me and on their beloved land.

Thank you again!
Shad Arington
