I have a picture of the Oakdale Church and school between Huckaby and
Stephenville. It has a McElroy in it- I think he was a teacher. Also my
mom's Carey , Bailey , Stone and other kin. This photo was in Fort
Worth Star Telegram several years ago in a colum entitled West Texas
History or similar. Fort Worth Star Telegram Archives are in Arlington
State University Formerly North Texas Agricultural College (NTAC)- was a
sister school to Tarleton (JTAC) under Texas A&M and some are online. I
have a copy of the photo and article with all names under it, from Mom's
scrapbook. Arlington State is now under University of Texas umbrella. If
you do not find it on a Google search, I will hunt it, but now it's Tax

This is Jean Gilliam again...I was reviewing some old e-mails and
that your aunt was Minnie D. Tucker. Was she related to "Bud"
was the station master at the Mingus depot? I have talked with his
Linus in Big Spring last year. As a child I remember my dad taking
to the old depot and my dad visiting with "Bud"
I enjoy reading about the times of folks in and around Erath and
Have a good day!
