 Early years
Within two years, the group had become so successful that George Thomas “Dad” Speer decided to make the group full-time. In the late 1920s, the group established a working relationship with the James David Vaughan Music Company, selling songbooks.
However, the group’s success proved to be insufficient to support two families’ budgets. In 1925, Logan and Pearl Claborn left the group; Logan returned to his job as a carpenter.
