We are getting ready to restore the statue of General Cornpone.

The only problem we have is that we do not have anything to replicate the sword from so we are looking for pictures, nice sized pictures, that show the hand holding the sword clearly.

Can anyone help with that?

Very Happy I might have a picture of the General. I'll have to look and see I don't know if its a good one or not. I'll look. I have to ask about the Kissing Rocks, are they still in one piece? I can't wait for you guys to get this thing finished. My girls would love to see Dogpatch.

Crying or Very sad Sorry, I guess I lied. I really thought there was a picture of Cornpone in my stuff. Maybe I'm thinking about a picture that my parents have. Sorry.

It's no problem, at least you made an effort Smile

The kissing rocks are there and still in one piece. They have suffered from a few years of erosion, but not in pieces Smile

Wouldn't actual cartoon images work as well? Not that I have one.

I'll check when I get home, but I think the only picture I took of the statue was after he got his hand cut off.

Thanks Jules,
I saw those and I contacted Mr. Cary about them to see if he had some larger images. Those show the sword but I need them to be a little larger Sad

It's good to see that you're going to restore Gen Cornpone. I seen it behind a place in Branson, and was wondering what was going to happen to it. What are you going to with it after it's restored?

I think a good place to start with it is just hoping that someone doesn't try to rip it back off.

Honestly, at this point there are no concrete plans for it other than to have it repaired.

I'm particularly interested in finding where the train was taken too. (Yes, someone stole the train)

Anyone have any information on the train or it's carts possible whereabouts?
