Allen Mama - Dyess, 1949
a photo of Vivian Counts Clark, her son, Allen (2 1/2 years old) and her daughter, Dorothy Lynn Clark Lamkins (newborn - 1949) - pictured at their home in Dyess Colony, Arkansas.  Both Allen and Dorothy (Top) were born in Dyess. 
Clarks - 1949
a combination of two photos taken of Robert Edward Clark and Vivian Counts Clark.  Robert (Buddy) & Vivian Clark moved with their children from Dyess to Hot Springs, Arkansas in 1951.  While living in Dyess they worked the land.  I'm kinda disappointed.  I never got to pick cotton, but my brother did.

Vivian Counts Clark graduated from Dyess High School - a portion of the information in her autograph book was entered into the Dyess Colony, Arkansas history.
John and Margy 1950
John and Margy Bass Counts - Homestead Number 615
