Sam,
My family is from Hopkins, Missouri. My mother seems to possibly know or recall an Opal Rickard. In addition, she also stated that she was friends with two girls who lived across the alley from her. Their last name was Swaney. My grandmother (just passed last year) was best friends with the girls mother. According to the story, the mother (Mrs. Swaney) was shot and killed. My mother recalls it devestating my grandmother at the time as she knew her well and had talked to her earlier that day. I don't know how all this fits in or if there is a connection at all but the Hopkins Journal is still in existence and there may be information there. My gg-grandmother is Bessie DeShazer. Found this board by accident. Thanks!
