I was reared in Hope.The older generations of my family were close friends with several members of the Osteen Family.Two were Baptist Ministers, posssibly the Elbert & Noel you mentioned. One was a minister at Rosston, AR around 1940. The other had a church in Hope in the late 1940s. One had a daughter in my Hope High School Class of 1950 but moved after the 11th grade.At last contact, about 3 years ago, she lived in Texarkana. Dorsey lived in Crossett the last I heard.I have visited in his home over night.Dorsey had a brother who worked in a bank in Hope.Unfortunately most that I knew are now deseased.The last Osteen I had contact with was Sue Osteen about a year ago.I don't remember her maiden name.She lives in Hope.
The Osteens are well known in Hope by the older generations. You must visit there sometime.I can find Sue Osteen if you wish.
