Old Purdon High School
Purdon, Navarro County, Texas


Purdon School Index || Photographs Index





The one of the class is prior to 1920--It is a class at Purdon High
School.  My g-uncle Wm. Edgar (Buckshot) Adkins is in it.  Not sure
where but on the bottom row I believe.

The one with the school in the background--it is the old Purdon School
(not the one that was used before the school merged with Dawson, the one
before that).  My grandmother and her brother  (Barbra Adkins and Nathan
Lafayette Adkins) are in this --again I must get mother to identify and
will get back with you on this.  This is also prior to 1920 as my
grandmother married in 1918--

In going through some old pictures that belonged to Udelle Ferguson Woodall, I found this one. On the back is written:
Purdon Faculty
Norma Lee McGee
C. C. Isbell- Supt.
Udelle (In light colored jacket (b 24 March 1911 d 14 April 2006)
Connie Strickland
Hazel Holsey
Udelle is Udelle Ferguson who later married Earle S. Woodall.
Maybe someone can identify the other people in the picture.
I believe this was made about 1936, but I'm not sure.
