John Darr Family Funeral
Posted by: Thomas Jones (ID *****9885) Date: March 04, 2010 at 11:40:27

I'm looking at a photographic series of a funeral taken by Artura Studios, Jonesboro, AR. The photos belong to a student I was helping with identification.

The funeral is for the "John Darr Family"... three people, with the inscriptions

"Funeral for John Darr Family"

"John Darr - father"
Jesie Darr - Stepmother"
"Teddi Ruth Darr - half sister"

"Parents of Mary Arkansas"
"Bufords Mother"

The photos appear to be from circa late-1880's (just a guess). The photographs are apparently from a high-quality (for the era) camera, about 5x7", and in remarkably good preservation.

I told my student I'd try to learn what I could. Anyone know anything about these folks? I have scanned the photos and with the student's permission can email them to anyway.
