After corresponding with family researchers, it is likely that Ammorilous Barksdale died in 1884 and that her child, D. A. Barksdale, was born in late 1882 or in 1883.

Re: dates for Ammorilious Barksdale and D. A. Barksdale. Both grave markers are broken and the dates are no longer visible. A 1950 cemetery survey had D. A. Barksdale born in 1862, but some of the descendants say it should be 1882. Since Ammorilious was born in 1842, I am inclined to think the 1862 birth date for D. A. is probably correct.

Ammorilious Barksdale died 7-29-1881, yet her child D.A. Barksdale was born 8-21-1982. One of these must be a typo. Could you tell me which date needs to be changed? Thanks a bunch!

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

Are there collections of school yearbooks, or other detailed information, that would list students and teachers? All of my 6 aunts and uncles named Burns attended schools in Prescott. In 1920, My aunt Jeanette Burns was hired to teach school (See time-line,1920.) She also taught in Arkadelphia where at least two of her siblings were her students, My grandfather, Jay T. Burns was granted the first authorization to practice law in the town. Is there a historic listing of early lawyers in Nevada County? I am way up the Mississippi River in St. Paul, MN and have not found time, money or gas sufficient to journey to Prescott. I would like to come on down, however.

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.

This is a really nice site! I lived for a year in Prescott while I was 16 (that was 16 yrs ago, and I STILL remember the fight song for the Curly Wolves!). I've always been a bit nostalgic about Prescott. Anyhow, I found some of my family in the Laneburg Cem: W. T. "Bill" Fryar - my grampa, William Thomas, his brother John Christopher Fryar (and yes, he IS in that cem.), his sister Elsie Elizabeth Fryar Jones (m. Melvin Ambus Jones bur. in same) There are more Fryar's in that cem. They are in that same row with my grampa (there's 5 or 6 graves). My grampa Bill has a yellow Forsythia bush planted next to him, at the head of the grave. His first wife (Marie?) died in childbirth along with the baby - the bush is the baby's marker (don't know about the wife). Also, my 1st cousin, Leonard Ural "Lynn" Raley, son of Alice (Fryar) (Simpson) Haney, is buried on the other side of my grampa. Lynn died in Apr 2001, age 42 (Just FYI). What I would like the find out is where my greater-grandparents are buried. Christopher Columbus & Martha Alice (Rothwell) Fryar, John Richard "Dick" & Mary E. (Roberts) Rothwell. I have family history on my Rothwell branch, (if anyone's interested) but nothing on the Robert's or Fryar's. Thanks again for this wonderful site!

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.

Clyde Watson Buchanan, Jr.'s year of birth is incorrect on his headstone which is located in Deanne's new section. How can I get this corrected? Or, who do I contact? Only the year 1936 needs to be changed to year 1935. I was his wife. Thank you.

Tabitha, Why don't you donate some black history, instead of accusing white people of hate ?. It's people like you, that keep the hate alive. Do your part, and quit blaming someone else.
