Possum Valley Subscribers, Rt.1, Wilmar, Ark., Lee Rogers, Operator

[Note: S = Short, L = Long - the phone could be reached by "ringing" the phone the number of Shorts or Longs listed. This method was used when phones didn't have dials but rather had cranks on the side of the phone. Example: to reach Will Carey, a person would turn the crank 1 short, 1 long, then 1 short, and Mr. Carey would know the call was for him.]
