Uncles Cletus "Chick" Stockton and Lee Roy Stockton, doing some work on Uncle Chick's farm, 1960. I originally thought the man stooping over was uncle Dee Howard, but as I was trying to improve this photo I realized that it was probably not him. I believe the man is a Stockton relative, but I'm not able to identify him.

Cousins Sandra Kay and Rebecca Lynn "Becky" Stockton, about 1960.  This is a studio photo.

Cousins Karen and Linda Stockton and my wife to be Carolyn Sue Whitsett, Thanksgiving, 1962, at our grandparent Arthur and Osa Corbett's home, Van Buren, Arkansas. At the time I was stationed in Wakkanai Air Station, Hokkido, Japan about 30 miles south of the Soviet island of Sakhalinsk. Just the month before me, my fellow airmen and our families had to sweat out the Cuban missile crisis.

Mrs. Ora (Smith) Stockton, Thanksgiving, 1962. This may be the last picture taken of Mrs. Stockton before her death in 1963. Cousin Linda Stockton in (red) vest and aunt Elinor (Corbett) Stockton in background.

I believe this is cousin Becky with her new brother Larry Olen Stockton at our grandpa and grandma Corbett's farm, Van Buren, late in 1963 or early 1964.

Cowboys Lee Roy and Cletus Stockton with horse Stranger, Van Buren, Arkansas 1968. Anyone who knew them would testify, uncle Lee Roy and uncle Chick were never ones to take life too seriously.

Uncle Lee Roy and Stranger, 1968. I don't remember who belonged to Stranger, but this photo was taken by my mother on my grandparent's ten acre mini-ranch.

The extended family of aunt Elinor and uncle Lee Roy Stockton at our family reunion, my mother's place in Roland, Oklahoma in 1983. Adults, L-R: cousin Linda and husband Charles (Wayne) Rhodes; aunt Elinor and uncle Lee Roy; cousin Karen and husband David McKinley. The rambunctious boy is 10 year old Benjamin "Ben" Garrett Rhodes, his brother, 17 year old Charles Jeffery "Jeff" Rhodes was not at the reunion; next, Karen and David's sons Michael Cory, Robert Jason and Robin Berry McKinley.

A studio photo of cousins Rebecca Lynn "Becky", Larry Olan and Sandra Kay "Sandy" Stockton, daughters and son of Cletus and Dorothy (Corbett) Stockton. This portrait was taken sometime in the 1980's.

Aunt Dorothy (Corbett) Stockton and some of her family and grandchildren, Roland, Oklahoma, 1983. Larry Stockton is holding his first child. His wife is on his right. Because I was in the Air Force and then lived in Arizona I was not around Becky, Sandy or Larry much at all as they grew up, got married and had kids of their own. Larry was closest in age to my son Bruce who did get to know his cousin Larry and they spent some time together when Bruce and his two young children, Michael and Ashley, lived in Arkansas for a short time. Cousin Becky is the woman on the left with her three children, eight year old Brent Lee Oden, five year old Brannon Michael Oden and seven year old Breck Richard Oden.
