In Response To: Re: [AR] Anyone heard of Earle ()
My family is from Earle, Arkansas and I was born there as well as 3 if my siblings in the 50s. Mcgee,Christian,Vortice and Bigby are family surnames. Most of the family left by the mid 60s. In the 50s and 60s there was a thriving african american community. My Grandfather,Christian owned a grocery store in the area. Earle was one of the early stops on BB Kings tour. Some if the other surnames that I'm aware frin the area are Cunningham, Dancy, Brown, Vortice, Lee, Mathews.
