    • Bob Strong said that his mother, Stella, divorced her first husband in Montague County, Texas. Charles and Pat could not find a record of either her marriage or divorce at the Montague courthouse. Bob also thought that her first husband was "more than twice her age" and that he may have been married before, and possibly after, his brief marriage to Stella.

    IS ROY WEST THE FIRST MAN TO THE LEFT OF THE BACK ROW?
    This photo was one of a series of photos taken in the early 1940's at Medicine Park, Oklahoma, on the edge of the Wichita Wildlife Refuge, with Mt. Scott as a backdrop. This park began its life in 1908, the year following the return of the bison to Wildlife Refuge. It was the first planned resort town in Oklahoma, the red round cannonball sized stone is an unique naturally formation occurring in the Wichita Mountains. Pictured are (Left to Right) Back Row: UNKNOWN (Possibly Roy West), Leroy Weaver, Bob Strong, Barney Strong Middle Row: Burt Strong, Cecil Lewis holding Tommy Lewis, Gus Strong, Walter Strong, Rolla Strong Front Row: Jerrell Holt, Charles Lewis (Note: Identifications are not positive in all cases, but were based on the opinions of Jerrell Holt, Barney Strong and Benny Strong, who made some assumptions based on ages and family makeup).

    POSITIVE IDENTIFICATION WOULD BE APPRECIATED.
