There are two purposes for Comments in the Encyclopedia of Arkansas History & Culture. Comments can either add information to aid in the understanding of the entry or add information that provides an alternate interpretation of the historical record.

Information included in this section is not fact checked by the Encyclopedia staff. The author of the Comment is entirely responsible for its content.

My maternal great-grandfather, who passed away in 1986, worked at E.E. Franks Feed Store and Cotton Gin in Waldo for many years. I have very fond memories of going to that old store with him. I would be deeply appreciative to anyone who may have an image of that old store and would be willing to share it.
