  1. To the best of my knowledge, I have not met Dempsey Graham (my first cousin once removed). I haven’t visited my Graham kin in Missouri for at least two decades, since I was a child. I was hoping to make a stop back in June on my way to the reunion in Arkansas, but then that auto accident screwed up my plans.


  2. Wow Byron, I sure wish I could take a bunch of my very old pictures and meet Dempsey, I bet he would know who all these people are that we can’t name from the Watts area in Arkansas. Do you know him or were you at the party?
