I looked the family up in the Census records and James, wife and family are living in White River, Woodruff Co., AR in 1910. James b. abt. 1869, AL, married abt. 16 yrs, and farm laborer. Docia C. b. AL, 35 yrs old, had given birth to 7 children & 6 were alive in 1910. Andy A., b. AR, 15, farm laborer; James E., 13, farm laborer; Johnson L., 9; Eual, 7; Claude C., 5 and Ruby 6/12ths.
On Sept. 12, 1918 Johnson Lewis French filled out his World War I Draft Reg. Card. He was living in Fetzburg, Woodruff Co., AR, born. 10 July 1900. He was farming for James French, same address. His nearest relative was Jim French. He was medium height & build w/ gray eyes & light-colored hair.
In 1920 the family was still living in White River. Two children were added to the family; Lois A., b. abt. 1914 and Werney L. b. abt. 1915.
I couldn't find most of this family in the 1930 Census.
I believe Ewell is living in Augusta, Arkansas. You can check switchboard.com.
