John Darr Family Funeral
I'm looking at a photographic series of a funeral taken by Artura Studios, Jonesboro, AR.The photos belong to a student I was helping with identification.

The funeral is for the "John Darr Family"... three people, with the inscriptions
"Funeral for John Darr Family"
"John Darr - father"
Jesie Darr - Stepmother"
"Teddi Ruth Darr - half sister"
"Parents of Mary Arkansas"
The photos appear to be from circa late-1880's (just a guess).The photographs are apparently from a high-quality (for the era) camera, about 5x7", and in remarkably good preservation.
I told my student I'd try to learn what I could.Anyone know anything about these folks?I have scanned the photos and with the student's permission can email them to anyway.
