The following photos have been submitted for publication over a period of time and I am just now getting them posted. I apologize for having lost the information as to who submitted which photo and am unable to identify any of the photos or persons in them. If you submitted one of these photos or know any of the persons in them.

The above photograph is of Cyrus McElroy and wife Lucetta

The following three photos were submitted by Nancy Bell. They were taken from the album of her grandmother, Lucy Sansom Scott and were taken around 1910-1920. Nancy is asking anyone that can identify anyone in the photos to please contact her. 

The next two photos were submitted by Jay Luquette

I thought this might be of interest to others in Chickasaw.  My grandfather, Rad Walker Reeder, is the young boy standing next to the teacher.  The Houlka Schoolhouse is in the background.  The schoolhouse opened around 1907, which is the year my grandfather was born.  I'm not sure how old he is in this picture, but I'd say it has to be around 1917 or so.  Don't know any of the other children in the photo, but I thought it might be of interest to other families searching for ancestors.
