Re: “Jones’ ‘Arkansas Waltz’

Carlos Pickle did you know my father Duffie Wallis he was a younger brother To Vermon Wallis? Vermon was a singing partner with Cletus Jones on the Benton & Hot Springs radio show know as... The Slim & Shortie Show. They sang before & during the WW2. The jones & wallis farms are still joined together by there family members. Cletus Jones was like family to us all and sang at all the Wallis funerals including my parents whom are burrows near the farms at FairPlay Baptist Church cemetery. When my uncle Vermon Wallis died in 1944 his beloved wife my aunt Norma Jean Hicks Wallis remarried Cletus Jones's brother a Frelon Jones. During that marriage they had two daughters Shirley and Sheila Jones. Shirley sing in the nightclubs in Hot Springs. One day why Shirley was singing in Hot Springs walked in the man who became her husband & still is to this day. They fell in love... Shirley's husbands name is Actor Jerry Van Dyke. Throughout the years after my Aunt Norma Jean Hicks Wallis Jones second husband Frelon died, (who is Cletis Jones's brother) she lived with her daughter Shirley & her husband Jerry Van Dyke up until her death & she is buried on the Jones Farm along with here husband and most of the Jones' relatives~
