      Loranzo Dow Cotter was born Sept. 8, 1881 the son of John Cotter and Elizabeth (Jackson) Cotter in the Vidette Community and lived there all of his life. He died July 8, 1960. The Cotters came from Cork County, Ireland to North Carolina and then to Tennessee, where they raised their family. The children scattered into Illinois, Missouri, Oklahoma, and Arkansas setting in the western part of Fulton County in the 1860's. William R. Cotter and wife Dicey J. Cotter, grandparents of Loranzo Dow, came to Arkansas and homesteaded in the Pickren Hall/Vidette area along with their children. Chester A. Arthur signed Homestead papers on May 20, 1862. The family of Cotter's is buried at Grisso, Hurst and Fluty Cemeteries.
      Dow, as he was known, was married to Cora Brown and they had nine children. He went to school three days and decided it was not for him. He was successful rancher, buying up land for taxes and raising cattle, owning well over a thousand acre ranch, several rental houses and commercial buildings in the Bakersfield, MO. and Viola, AR. area. As a young man he worked on the laying the railroad down the White River and also worked for his future wife's father. His ranch is still a working ranch known as Little Creek Ranch, Gepp, AR.
      Dow and Cora had five boys, Edward married Doxie Shrable, Raymond, Harley married Mary Morrison, Dunkin married Clara Morrison and second wife Jean Knoll, and Rufus Cotter married Anna Wilson. Four daughters, Elizabeth married Ray Fore, Etta married Jim Thompson, Lorene married Buell Shrable, and Leola married Claude Keith. All the children are deceased except Etta Thompson, Leola Keith and in-law Anna Cotter.
      The Browns had a racetrack in the valley by the creek at Vidette where he raced horses and tended to them. Cora Brown was the daughter of Edward and Margaret Brown, also born at Vidette. Before marrying, she taught school in the school house-Methodist Church known as Brown's Chapel at Vidette build and donated by her grandfather, Captain Mathew Brown. The building at Vidette is still standing and was used as a school and served as several different churches. She spent her life gardening and tending to the nine children. In their lifetime they had three homes and a barn to burn and without insurance.
