Zina Young's Parents

I don't know their first names and Zina wasn't in the picture but the
writing on the back of the picture says that they were also neighbors of the Calton's.

Hyden Kids

The children are Johnny Hyden and his sister Patty.  
Mom told me that the little girl, Patty, died from pneumonia when she was only four years old.  
Johnny was killed in an automobile accident.  Mom says he was married and had children
when the accident took his life.  I believe they had another sister, Gale.

Postoak Girls

The sign says Sendy Hill Baptist Sunday Sch The Life of Christ Part I.
Look at the trees and the landscape! Must've been at the side of a road in the Spring or Fall?
Is this Sandy Hill Baptist Church off old Hwy 19 which is now Lake Longmire Road?
There is a cemetery there and it was a Native American church.

Mrs. Bell

The writting on the back of this picture says Mrs. Bell was a neighbor when
Myrtle Jane Calton was 6 years old. The year would have been 1901.
When I showed my Mom, Mary Irene Cantwell Thompson the picture, she said Mrs. Bell
was known for making "light bread". She showed my Grannie how to bake it.
She would put the dough under a feather mattress to get it to rise!
It must've worked because my Grannie became an ace at baking light bread although
I never saw her put her dough under a mattress!
