My uncle, J. Phil Burns is on the bottom row, third from the left. I have an additional "portrait" of him in uniform, taken, it appears in 1921-22. He is listed here as Phill Burns. My mother's maiden name is Agnes Burns, also of Prescott - along with her other siblings, 7 in all. She married Otis Theodore Bourns (pronounced Burns) of DeQueen, Arkansas in 1934. Her mother's maiden name was Dolly Pearl Phillips, thus comes my name Phillips Monroe Bourns. My mom went by the name Burns Bourns. I would like to hear from anybody whose father was on this football team. Phil Bourns

This picture is NEWER than 1950. It is more like 1970. The men's glasses and clothing are certainly not from the 1950's. Also, I knew Jim Wingfield, and he would have been younger in 1950 than as he appears in this photo.

The play was probably "Pickles" based on the backdrop ("Wurtzelpraeter Inn"). It was somewhat popular for glee clubs of that era. A description of "Pickles" follows: PICKLES The scenes were laid in the Garden of Wurtzelpraeter Inn, Vienna at carnival time and in a gypsy camp near Vienna. Johnas H. Pennington, an American millionaire pickle manufacturer, with his daughter, June, arrived in Vienna amidst preparations for the annual carnival. To his consternation he finds Jones, his advertising expert, advertising Pennington's Peter Piper Pickles too well. An old acquaintance, Lady Vivian, a wealthy English- woman, also arrives on her annual quest in search of her daughter, who was lost near Vienna at Carnival time when a baby. Kinski, the pompous police chief, plots to substitute the lost child of Lady Vivian and marry her for the fortune. A band of gypsies visit the carnival led by Jigo, the chieftain, and his supposed daughter, Ilona. Events lead all to the gypsy camp where a magic pool reveals the face of Lady Vivian's daughter. Arthur Crefont, a poor artist, wins recognition of his art and also the hand of June Pennington. Lady Vivian consents to become Mrs. Pennington; Kinski's plot is exposed; Ilona is restored to her mother and Jones is rewarded with success in his campaign for the hand of Ilona.

I was the basketball manager for the years 1956 and 1957, when Julius Adams and Terrell Calhoun were coaches. Remember winning the District and going to State Tournament. Never forget working on my own time on Saturday's washing uniforms and clean dressing areas. The wooden floor was a very new floor and was one of the best in Arkansas. I also worked in the Time Clock booth and recorded shots made and location shots taken. Information used by coaches. Wrapped a lot of ankles and folded and handed out a lot of uniforms for the games. Good memories.

My Parents and their 2 kids, (my sister Kay and I) moved from Magnolia, Ark. to Prescott in 1946 and I started the second grade in this school with Mrs. Ardel Clark as my teacher. The next year I was transferred to the third grade in a new building they built behind the elementary school on the east side of town near where the park is now. Mrs. Gann was my teacher then.

I spent many hours on Saturday's, watching cowboy moves and jungle movies. A coke and a bag of popcorn was what I usually got when I went in. I would do this every Saturday when I went home with Jerry Garner. I would go home with him on the school bus and spend the night with him. Then we would get up on Saturday morning, play and get ready to go to town. The movie was our babysitter while our mothers did their shopping. Daddy owned half of Dalrymple and Henry on the other side of Buchanan's Drug Store and I got my hair cuts at Fore's Barber Shop by Ralph or Shorty Fore.

I, too, remember the trips to the Cornish Mortuary in the '50's to see Old Mike. He was in a standing position at that time. My father, A. A. McKinnon, would then take my 2 brothers and I through the nearby park to show us where they found Old Mike. A trip from Shreveport to Prescott to visit my grandparents, David A. & Nora Campbell McKinnon, was not complete without a visit to see Old Mike. I later took my children there to see him. Shortly after that, they buried him.

The old gym was used as a roller skating rink in the early 1960s for a couple of years and the old wooden basketball flooring was wonderful for skaters. I have many fondly-remembered memories of hours circling that floor! And I'll never forget that sound of dozens of skates rolling over that hollow-sounding floor.while "This Diamond Ring" and other great tunes played loudly over the loud speakers.

Andres was a drummer boy in the 9th Connecticut (yes, the Union Army) but attended all the Confederate reunions because he tried to enlist at age 15-16 but the CSA wouldn't take him. He joined the 9th Connecticut when it came through Lousiana. G.M. Franks was with the 20th Arkansas, was captured at Vicksburg.

The man with the small drum is John Montgomery Andres, He was a Union solider (9th Connecticut Infantry, but attended Civil War reunions due to his friendship with all of the confederate soldiers. He tried to enlist in the Confederate Army but was turned down because he was too young. Walked until he ran into a Union regiment and signed up. He was determined not to go back to the orphanage where he had been living.

I also have good memories of this old bridge, the Macedonia Baptist Church in Boughton (black side) had their baptizing there.

recd email from Mrs Hays's daughter which stated in part "taught chemistry at Prescott High from around 1938 until after WWII. Ed Smith asked her to teach again but at Middle School in the early 70's. This is a picture of my mother with a 5th grade class that was integrated. This had to be in the70's or 80's." i would trust this as being correct, would like to know exactly what year it is.

This was a place of business for Mr. Sid Peachey. He worked for the State, and would help Korean War widows receive assistance. I believe this picture was made about 1960, as the sign has been removed from a top the chimney, and the stone well has been removed. Also tree has been cut, and the original dark logs have been painted. Termites and rot finally made the structure unstable, and it was finally demolished. It was located on East First between the old Peters house, ( which currently houses the SWADC), and the old skating rink.

I was in the 3rd grade in 1950 (Grammar School), Mrs. Hayes taught the 4th, 5th, or 6th grade (Park Elementary). No black children were enrolled at either school at that time!!

I have a lot of good memories of swimming just below this bridge and fishing on the river with my grandfather, A. E. McGuire. My father, Dawson Henry, Sr. and I also made a lot of floats down the river bass fishing. Almost lost my sister when she got caught in the swift shoals at the swimming hole just below bridge. I had to catch her before she got into deeper water. We drove down to see the old bridge while at the 45th reunion of the Class of 1958.

What a marvelous medium the internet is, it's like a magic carpet in that with only strokes of the computer keyboard you can go so far back in time to your memories. Things that have not been thought of for so long. Prescott of the 1950's was a unique place in which to grow up, not perfect for sure but full of wholesome caring and genuine community love. The train station for all of my arrivals and departures, coming home from college after three days riding on "coach" from Spokane, Washington indeed was a welcome sight with my dad waiting for me at one a.m.. You might remember it did'nt stop to pick up passengers without the stationmaster radioing in advance to Texarkana for it to stop. It just "blew " through Prescott otherwise. Great memories expand on it and keep up the good work.

My father-in-law was half owner of this store. When I was a teenager growing up Dalrymple and Henry's was THE place to buy clothes. Cline and I still like to visit the store when we come home.

I would be interested to know if any GLASS families are involved in you works? Also, if possible I would like to contact the LIGE GLASS family that lives in the Cantley house on Cale road and see if they have any connection to our GLASS'S in North Alabama, we have been here for 6 generations and came from Jonesboro, Ga. before that.

I was so pleased to come across this photo on your site. My grandmother, Thorne Hesterly, lived across the street from the depot, and we all loved watching the trains thunder by when my family visited.

I remember going to the Jewel in the 50s. They sold only popcorn, and they played old movies -- "shoot 'em ups" we called them. I also saw my first Tarzan movie there, and several Jungle Jim movies. dw

The girl standing directly behind the "throne" is Pauline Parks Buford. I believe the one in the bathing suit is Bobbie Ward Minor instead of Miller.

Does anyone know if R. L. Blakely is one of the people in the picture, or who the other folks might be? My family includes Robert Lee Blakely's brother, Ben H. Blakely, who married Fannie Martin.

Thank you, Nevada Co. Depot Museum, for the photo of my (grandfather Roy B. Tarkington) Papa Roy's Cafe. Papa Roy and Ethel made the best cheeseburgers in the world (in my young eyes); Papa also had the WORLD'S GREATEST CHILI. Sadly, he never got around to telling anybody his recipe, and it died with him. My Mother, her sister, and their brothers have spent YEARS trying to re-create the chili recipe and the biscuit recipe. Thanks again for the smile!

From the photo, this looks like a very modern rig for that time. It has a Lee C. Moore triple mast, upper and lower doghouses; a 15'substructure; 4.5 inch drill pipe. The photo must have been taken in the winter since the rig is fitted with tarps. The depth capability of this rig would have been 10 or 12 thousand feet; however,the depth there was probably much less. The Ark Oil and Gas Commission would have records of the hole--depth and findings.

I love the tree. Its very beautiful. I wish I still lived there. After 9 years of living there I still wish I did. I miss everyone there. Every single building, every road, every park, every church, and every tree in Prescott. I miss it all.

I believe the caption should be Elberta Zephyr instead of Alberta. Elberta was a type of peach grown in the region years ago.

The last lady is definitely my grandmother, (Gammy)Marie Ridling. The other two ladies are her sisters. The first one looks like Aunt Gil( Gillie Mae Cummings). The one in the middle is harder to recognize, but probably Aunt Vel (Velma Clark).

The unidentified little girl to the right of Sarah Elizabeth (Sutton) McKinnon is Roma Lee (Cross) Garner. The daughter of Amanda (Sutton) and Hiram Buchanan "Buck" Cross. She was born 11 July 1900 and eight days later her mother, Amanda died. So she was raised by her aunt Sarah (Sutton) McKinnon. I believe, this picture is probably taken in about 1904.

The last three ladies toward the back of this picture look like my Mother and her two sisters. Their names were Velma Clark, Chrisine Barham and Marie Ridling. I would love to hear from anyone that would know for sure.

I am very glad to finally see this picture on the web. The first time I got to view the photo, Mr. Teeter showed it to me at the Depot Museum. I was informed that I am related via my maternal Grandmother-Pearl May Barksdale Nalley, Elizabeth "Liza" May, Laura (Luroa) Alice Briggs May, John May, & Gabriel May. Thank you for sharing! Additional info ref relationship to Louise May Barksdale: I am related also via my maternal Grandmother Pearl May Barksdale/Hezekiah Tigg Barksdale & John Barksdale. My Uncle Virgil Nalley made a special trip a few years ago also to see the photo. He will be very proud to know she is on your web site. Pearl Barksdale was his mother. Thank you so much for allowing other relatives to see the photo on your web site. Sincerely, Lethia Jo Roberts-Rosenberg

The lady standing next to Mrs. O'Holloran (2nd from the right)with the dark hair is my Grandmother Pearl May Barksdale who assisted Mrs. O'Holloran in running the hotel. Pearl May Barksdale married Samuel Eugene Nalley, however she was actually born in Bluff City. Mr. Nalley owned a dry cleaners which was located where the Napa Automotive Parts Store currently stands in Prescott. Thank you for giving me the chance to identify her for others. I did get to see the photo at the depot museum with Mr. Teeter several years ago. Sincerely, Lethia Jo Roberts-Rosenberg

Are these gentlemen children of Thad Buchanan? If so, I would really like to hear from anyone who would like to swap family info. Thad's wife was a distant cousin.

The unknown customer is actually Mr. Jack Martin. Mr. Martin was the Prescott taxi service. He would use the City Cafe as his office, waiting for the phone to ring, to transport his next customer.

It was surprising to see my grandpa (Papa Roy) on the Internet. Roy's name still carries on; I named my son Roy the IV.
