Remembering Evergreen - Memories Letters



I was five years old when I started school in Evergreen. My first grade teacher was Miss Ormsby, a very good teacher, but also very strict. After living in the country for five years, this small town was so new to me. We had several grocery stores and one fish market. Later on we had our church built. There were also a few churches. Evergreen was a small town, but so clean. As I grew up, I made many friends.

There were two cotton gins and my dad operated one. The railroad would pass by my house and many times there were some hobos sleeping in the empty cars. To me that was very scary.

There was one Catholic priest and a few protestant ministers. I don’t want to forget our doctors, Dr. Henry Buck, who was my doctor. Then there was Dr. W. A. Quirk. I remember when I was three years old I suffered pneumonia and Dr. Buck saved my life.

There is so much I could talk about, but I will have to cut it short.

I still love my old town of Evergreen, and I still remember every thing about it.
