THE HISTORY OF DOYLINE SCHOOL
Doyline High School Reunion February 18, 2006
Parking Lot......Does anyone know what the building in the background is?

Miriam Booth, Drew Chreene, and Sherry Gresham Gritzbaugh)
Miriam's brother Elton Booth was in the class with Drew and Sherry when they attended Doyline school. Elton did not attend the reunion this year. He now lives in Odessa, Texas. Last year he and Joe Pyle drove from Odessa, Texas to be there. Drew and Sherry were the only two from that class in attendance. We were disappointed that we did not get to see them. If they read this message maybe they will e-mail me at MindenMemories@AOL.COM and send me a picture to add to the site.
Wonder if any of our class remembers when we square danced to "Old Dan Tucker" for the entire school and made idiots of ourselves? :>) My partner was BobbyWray Herren. I thought he was sooo cute.
This is Wick Pickett, the younger brother of Marion Frances "Black" Pickett and Bob Pickett. He had not started to school in 1944. It warmed my heart so to see and be able to visit with him at the reunion. His sister was my best friend when we attended Doyline school. Black and I often spent the night with each other. We would take a boat and play in a creek behind the Doyline housing project. It probably wasn't very deep.
This is Shirley Greeson and Theressa Greeson Hunter.
This is Jack Shelly and Ruth Gordon Shelly. Ruth lived in "Rest-A-While" near the old Edgar Hands Drive-In. We had fun remembering the day we walked to her house when we were kids. She was the younger sister of Mack who is married to Mary Ruth McGinty Gordon. Mary Ruth is the lady that is writing the history of McIntyre. They were best friends and next door neighbors. We all rode Mr. Bert Rankins school bus when we were growing up and going to Doyline school. Two of the Gordon brothers recently died. Mack is still living.
The two ladies you see in the background are the Greeson sisters, Shirley and Theressa. Regina was with them but she was mingling with the crowd and we did not get her picture. Wanda did not attend. We were sad to learn that the eldest sister, Dolores Greeson Mays, was deceased.
Does anyone know if Jack and J. B. Shelly below are the same person?
Jack and J.B. Shelly/Shelley are two
different people. J.B. died in

submitted by LeVerne Langheld Kidd, class of 57 Says LeVerne, it
was one that John Agan, Webster Parish Historian may have used in
one of his books. John
also graduated from MHS in 1976.
John Agan's post: Seemed an appropriate image for today. I know the Webster Parish Schools have been back for a bit, but it's my first day of teaching. So, here are the drivers and students from
DOYLINE SCHOOL 1914
Says Dottie Day Adcock...
Sherry, there are two girls in the first row standing. They have on identical dresses. One is taller than the other. They are John's aunts. The taller girl is Lois LONG Vick, mother of Merlin Vick of Minden. The other is her twin, Louise LONG Shepard. I cannot find John's mother, Mattie Lee LONG Adcock, but I believe the older sister, Mary L. LONG, is on the next row back, one over, to the girls right. She has dark hair and a fairly dark dress similar to Lois and Louise.
Sherry, I have found John's mother and grandmother also in the photo. There is a little girl seated on the front row with a bow in her hair. That would be Mattie Lee LONG Adcock, John's mother. The girls' mother is standing in the back row, 2nd of the women that can be easily seen. I have a 1913 photo when they were at the Louisiana State Fair that helped me confirm that. What a treasure!
