You have taught us to be loyal

And Our future was begun to you.
The history of Doyline school dates back to the late
1800s by town founder Captain Downs B. Doyle. Did you
know it started as a one room? In 1902
a new two room building was built on the same site,
and enrollment climbed to seventy-five. By 1910, a
six-acre tract of land was bought and a frame two

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? :>)

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
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
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
2003, but last I heard, Jack is still alive. They
are/were cousins of
The surname has morphed over the years, depending upon
the branch of
the family. It's sometimes spelled "Sheley",
"Shelly", or "Shelley". I don't know
their graduation years. My father was Maxwell Shelley.
Nellie married Cecil Savacool and they still live over on
US-80 on the
north side of the ammunition plant. Nellie was one of my
younger sisters. He was the oldest from the N.B.
"Bud" Shelley side
of the family.
