Wade, Jesse, Homer, & Asa
Since Asa Neal and Jesse Wm Mann are in this picture with Homer Sheeks, I think it was taken in Indiana, not in Arkansas. Homer is horsing around, wearing a bib. Amused, his grandson James Wade Sheeks, better known as Wade, is sitting on the left. Wade was born 7 July, 1915 in Stuttgart, Arkansas, died 7 Sep 1950 near Little Rock, Lincoln County, Arkansas, and is buried in the Sheeks Cemetery, Mitchell, IN with his father, Harry A. Sheeks. Wade was an epileptic and never married. He had an older brother, Wayne (8 Jan 1914-25 Oct 1960). When Wade's mother, Stella Ziegler, died, Harry left his two sons with his mother, Mrs. Homer (Kate Stephens) Sheeks, who had divorced his father, and was running a boarding house in Mitchell. Then Harry went to Arkansas where his father lived, and married Bessie Little, and they had six daughters: Mary; Selma; Anna Jean; Mildred; Hazel; and Helen.
