Little mystery house in Searcy AR. Where was it?

Old Searcy AR house. AR Ballard Holmes

This tiny pen and ink drawing is not very good but does show an old house in Searcy AR that was old and boarded even when the drawing was made in 1976.  It was requested by my mother-in-law Wyndelene Duncan and it was found in her things when she died. Quite frankly, I did not remember doing it.  Miss Winnie was a saver and a record keeper.  So with the little drawing she had saved this info on a card.

 

"Robert Taylor Judge property.  Owned by Louis D and Mattie Judge Wyette (daughter and son-in-law) of Robert Taylor Judge from ? to 1917.  Sold to a Butler family from Quitman Ark.  Sold to Ballard Holmes then in 1925 or 26.  This house was occupied by Evan Cobb family for a short time."

 

Wyndelene had some special attachment to this old place so her family may have lived there until they built a rock house on Holmes Road.  This was probably on Holmes Rd.  Anyone know anything about it??

Barbara,
I probably drove past it on a run to go fix someone’s TV back then but I don’t remember it. The tales that house could tell.

James, you could move here!!  I'll sell you a house.

David, I think it may have been in the corner where there is a curve on Holmes Rd but I don't know for sure.
