Greetings from Telford, England. I'm a huge JC fan and he has influenced the music I have written, as he has many others. It would be great to one day visit Dyess, meet with the locals and learn first hand about the area. Take care, see you soon.

I had the privelage of visiting dyess Arkansas this past February (25th & 26th) and to see the boyhood home of Johnny cash and to attend the JC boyhood home project benefit as well, it was wonderful to see members of the family talk and perform some of his songs as well as songs from the carter family. I also found it to be a rare opertunity to acquire the signatures of the family members and I was pleased at how the cash family was open with acceptable of the attending crowd on hand. I also had the opportunity to see and touch the original cash piano, that was a wonderful experience. I look forward to visiting dyess again very soon and seeing the boy hood home and town once it is restored, as well as for the dyess days celebration. Thank you, Danny Williams - Logan, Ohio

Born at the Dyess hospital in 1939 and lived in Dyess most of my youth up till age 10. Have many plesant memories of the area and a few old photos. Would like to know about some of my boyhood friends I have lost track of , like Cliff Wood and Jimmie Johnson. I have passed through Dyess on several occasions with my children when they were small. Last visit was in 2007. Maybe I will be able to get back this yearb or next. Any of the old articles from the newspapers that were published there in the 1930's and 40's?

from paragould, arkansas (about 50 miles away): "YOU WONDER WHY I ALWAYS DRESS IN BLACK?" --62 YR .VIETNAM VETERAN- I plan to be there today, Feb 26 for the dedication & hope to go see the museum in Nashville too when it is done? "WHAT HAVE I BECOME?" -I AM 62 YEARS OLD NOW? JOHNNY CASH'S DEATH REALLY AFFECTED ME WHEN I HEARD THE NEWS?? WAS DEPRESSED FOR LONG TIME. WE NOW NEED TO CELEBRATE HIS LIFE AND MUSIC AND LET THE LEGEND LIVE ON INTO THE FUTURE.

My mother's family lived in Dyess from the 40's through the 70's. My grandparents, John & Mary Harris, sharecropped and ran Harris Grocery for years while raising their six children: Loretta, Kenny, Peggy (Mom), Katherine, Kuron, and Keith. After WWII, Dad became DHS's basketball coach for both boys and girls. Mom met my father. B.G. Garrison in Dyess and on September 11, 2011 they celebrated 60 years of marriage. While my uncle Kuron was in the air force, he and a fellow airman landed a plane on Main street in the late 50's. The plane was damaged after striking a utility pole but they took off anyway. The plane later crashed in a field, killing my uncle. My family spent many holidays and visited Dyess often since it was home to my grandparents and other relatives like Keith & Joanne Harris. They are all gone from Dyess now but the memories as still very vivid.

How do you do

My grandparents, Noah and Vivian Passmore, settled in Dyess on a farm in the 1930's. My mother, Dorace Passmore, was one of their children. I remember visiting my grandparents in Dyess several times when I was a child. It has been many years now since I've been to Dyess. Would like to stop by again some day.

I was born and raised in Dyess, Ar. My parents were Andrew and Johnnie Jewell. We lived on Road 5. I left Dyess in 1955 and went to school in Forrest City, Ar. graduating in 1959. I am interested in school picturers. I had many brothers and sisters that went to Dyess school and would love to see them.

I did route 66 last may from LA to St. Louis. From there we went down to Memphis and stopped in Dyess to see the boyhood home of Johnny Cash. It sure was the highlight of my trip. Hope to come back one day when the house is fully restored. Greetings from the Netherlands.
