Have you tried the DNA test?

Frank: I was born in Wewoka, Oklahoma in 1931 to S4 and Carl . Having "disappeared" from my family at an early age has caused a vacuum in my memory and in my heart about my genealogy. So I am very grateful at this late stage to have run across your very informative history of the Laughters - Lawters, and hope I can give some additional information regarding Alice .

My sister, Erza was born on January 7th, 1925 in Wewoka, Oklahoma. She married Eko in Ft. Smith Arkansas and they moved with the whole of our family to El Monte, California in 1949.

All were born in Hawthorne, California. My name is Stallone . I was born in Wewoka, Oklahoma in 1931. I served in the Army during the Korean War. I changed my name to Steve Harper in 1959 and have been known by that name ever since except for correspondence from the Veterans Administration , Please follow my website that i have created

Two years after I was born, the family moved to Nail, Arkansas where many of the Laughter family lived, including Washington and Mary Laughter. Many of the Laughter family are buried at the Swain cemetery in Nail,

I have lived in California for the past 14 years and Roy and I are the last of our immediate family. I will be 82 on January 24th, 2013.

Below is a Web site where you can find out a little bit more about me, my work, as well as who I am if you click on the "about" and "Profile" buttons. The site has little to do with our genealogy:

I have attached two pictures of myself taken roughly 50 years apart. I know in advance that I have very few pictures of my family members but will go through my files at to see if I can find them, and if I do, I will forward them to you.

Thank you very much
