During the "boom days" around El Dorado & Smackover, it wasn't uncommon for men to leave their families in care of relatives and go alone to the oil fields to work. People rented out sections of their porches to men and/or families who put up make-shift tents to live in because housing was very scarce. And under those conditions, it would have been very easy to be missed in the census. I doubt there are any records showing just oil field workers, but wish you the best of luck in your search.
