>In addition to this one, there is another ALSUP obit appearing just two posts below this one. Also, have been reading Silas Claiborne TURNBO manuscripts and saw mention of ALSUP in one of them. You'll recall that he was sometimes in Missouri or Oklahoma -- as well as Arkansas -- when writing. Believe the ALSUP mentioned by SCT was in Missouri, and was in one of his WBTS stories.
