    Do you have or run across any information or old photos around Monarch, AR? Namely a store owned by the Whitley’s that also served as the post office I believe. Or any info of the surname “Markle”? My father grew up around there in the 30′s & 40′s. He attended a small community school early in his age. Said he had to cross a swinging bridge to get to it. Later attended Lead Hill school.
    Thanks for any information. Would like to gather some things for my Dad to reminisce on.
