DYESS — Organizers rehabilitating the Johnny Cash home in Dyess are looking for furnishings that will reflect the time the Cash family lived in the dwelling in the 1930s and '40s.

The first phase of the project is to open in April. Ruth Hawkins is directing the project through Arkansas Heritage Sites and Arkansas State University at Jonesboro.

The Jonesboro Sun reported that Cash's siblings, Joanne and Tommy, described everything they recall from the home and drew pictures from memory.

Organizers worked to match those memories with images from Sears catalogs from the period in hope of locating pieces that resemble the originals.

Among the key pieces being sought are a Davenport sofa and matching chair that are needed for the home's living room.
