US 271 in the 1920's : LUSENET : Oklahoma highways : One Thread

Does anybody have the specifics of the pre-1930 routing of US 271? To the best of my understanding, US 271 originally ran from Fort Smith, AR to Mena, AR along these modern roads: US 71B, "Y" Street, OK 112, OK 9A, US 271, US 59, US 259, OK 63, AR 8. I am guessing it ended at the corner of Reine and Reeves in Mena, but this is only a guess. The big question I have is the routing from roughly Hodgen to Big Cedar: did 271 follow the current highways or did it follow a different routing? A related question is when was US 259 (former OK 103) north of OK 1 completed?
