    Would you be interested in interviewing my 93 year old grandmother?

    Her name is Violet Morgan. She is a direct decendant of the settling families of the valley. Was raised in the Valley and has never moved farther away than 2nd street in Dardanelle. Her father a Morgan, her mother a Harris and thier parents were Harkey & Morgan.

    She can tell you all of the history by memory as well as who lays beneath just about every stone in both Harkey Valley & Chickalah Methodist Cemetaries as well as others in Yell County. She decorates from Hector to Dover(Tackett, Sims and Bulluck relatives) to Harkey to Cardon Bottoms(Harkey, Morgan, Sims & Wiggins relatives)

    If you are interested, you can reach me via e-mail or by phone at 501-837-2268.

    Best,
    Greg Jones
