Thank you for posting your web site as I have enjoyed lookine at it and have found it of most interst. I am in hopes that maybe since you live in Greene county that maybe you can help me. I am looking for 3 children that were turned over the to the state of Arkansas in Greene County Arkansas in or around the years of 1960 - 1962. The childrens names were Vickie Joe Berry born August 1, 1955 in West Memphis, Arkansas. Grady Elmer Berry born Jan. 19, 1957 in Jonesboro, Arkansas. And Melton Sedrick Berry born March 7, 1959 in Jonesboro, Arkansas. Their dad's name was Joseph (Joe) Berry and after the divorce it was rumored that he moved to St. Louis and a few years later passed away. The ladies name that took these children and made them a ward of the state is Ruby Ricker. Their mothers name is Ella Berry Thomas and she has been searching for these 3 children most of their life or since the state has taken them from her. She (Ella) has a brother that lives in Brookland, Arkansas who wife and him got to visit with them but the state wouldn't let them adopt them since they didn't have a 6 room house. Their name is Grady and Mable Jones, Grady Elmer and Melton Sedrick both are named after this man as he was the only brother to Ella. Grady and Mable use to call Grady Elmer - Casper (after casper the friendly ghost). If you have any body that may know any of these children (even though they are most likely parents themselfs) please reply if you find out anything or even know someone that may know something....
