Reasoner Family Materials, Part II

Sometimes we get small donations of documents from Arkansas families. These small collections offer a glimpse of everyday life in years past and can be some of the most interesting items. This two part blog series features a handful of documents from the Reasoner family of Yell, Pope, and Logan counties. What do you think these documents say about the family? What do they tell you about life in late nineteenth- early twentieth century Arkansas?

Letter from Bill (Delaware, Ark.) to Fannie Russell, May 29, 1924

USS Arkansas Christmas card, 1934

Promissory note, Bank of Russellville, August 24, 1935

All of these items are located in the Arkansas Small Manuscripts Materials, File #372. The Arkansas Small Manuscripts Materials (SMM) is a large collection containing miscellaneous documents pertaining to Arkansas. This collection is constantly expanding as new materials arrive at the Butler Center.
