      John Wayne's Grandson attends signing of True Grit trail Bill

      LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - The signing of the True Grit Trail bill had a special guest in attendance today, John Wayne's grandson!
      State Representative Mary Bently (R-Perryville) tweeted a photo earlier today with John Wayne's grandson John T. Wayne and co-sponsor of the bill Gary Stubblefield (R-Branch) saying, "Pretty special to have John Wayne’s Grandson John T. Wayne at the bill signing for our True Grit Trail Bill today!"
      The True Grit Trail bill, also known as Act 469, approves the renaming of the portion of Arkansas Highway 22 between Dardanelle and Fort Smith as the True Grit Trail.
    • I contacted the two legislators and the TV station that posted the story. Nothing back from the Arkansas legislators, but the TV reporter corrected the story so it no longer says Mr. Terry Hammock ("John T. Wayne") is John Wayne's grandson.
