Manford Espy Sweeper was born in Mena Polk Arkansas. He was my grandmother Opal Ray Becks half brother.His mother Sallie Sweeper married William Alford Beck, and died in childbirth with Opal in 1908.He had another half sister Faye, from William's second wife. Sallie Sweeper is listed in the 1900 Fulton Township, Polk Co. Arkansas Census with her father Andrew Jackson Sweeper and step-mother Martha, she is listed as single. I am not sure who Manford's father was and no one in the family is either.He lived and died in Arizona. He was a Seebee in WWII. My father remembers him fondly. Let me know if you need more info.
