1948 Comanche County Sheriff’s Department?

As you can see, someone has identified these men, but I can’t quite read it. Obviously, I recognize my dear old Gaston Boykin, who was a deputy sheriff in November of 1948. I assume that is when this photo was taken by looking at the calendar on the wall.

____, ____ (deputy sheriff), ____ (sheriff), Gaston Boykin (deputy sheriff)

____, ____ (deputy sheriff), ____ (sheriff), Gaston Boykin (deputy sheriff)

About Fredda Jones

Fredda Davis Jones was raised “in the country” in Comanche County and learned very early that creativity and innovation are traits that can flourish even in small-town Texas and that with enough effort, indeed nothing is impossible, including being married to the same man for over 40 years! Rickey and Fredda have 2 children, 5 grandchildren, and a crazy life that includes sitting in the bleachers several times a week. The rest of her time is spent creating great content for texansunited.com and marketing small-town Texas.

  1. Sue Lester says:

    James says the sheriff’s name was Sinclair.

  2. Missy Jones says:

    Yes, the sheriff is Perry Sinclair. (This spelling may not be right). to the right is Gaston Boykin, Deputy Sheriff, On the far left is, maybe the District Attorney (and I can’t place him), and next on the right is a deputy sheriff, —————–Ripley.
    And, yes I do remember McCullough-Jeanes. I also remember that to go upstairs, and the stairs was in the center of the building, that led to the gift shop.

  3. Polly Reed says:

    Perry St Clair was my mother’s daddy. I was born just after the war while he was sheriff and we lived in the jail a while after daddy, Tom Cox, Jr., came home. I have many family photos taken at the jail, but not many at the court house. I’ve always loved this picture.

  4. Kay Hall says:

    I’m thinking the name is St. Clair. A relative of Polly Cox; maybe her granddad.

  5. Missy Jones says:

    Fredda, the deputy is VERNON RIPLEY. I do remember him and his family. Still many of the family is living in the Comanche area. Missy Jones
