The following comes to you from Janella Henden, President of the Erath County Genealogical Society. I know that several of you have ties to both the Turnbow and the Barbee families.
After a short business meeting, I will present a power point program on The Turnbough (Turnbow)/Barbee Cabin –Its Land and Its People. I am indebted to Harrell Gilbreath and Tom Rogers for donating pictures and helping edit the materials. Many people have been generous with their time, sharing the memories and recollections concerning the subject.
Sandra Thomas has been wonderful in improving picture quality and putting them on power point (something I was entirely incapable of doing.) This has certainly been a learning experience for me, and I hope you will find it of interest.
Plan to leave room for some of your additions and stories concerning the subject. Remember some of these stories are simply legends – things that have been passed down from generation to generation.
I would like to welcome our new members –Freddie B. Bayne, Marihelen Hickey and Shanon Hunt.
The bi-annual newsletter will be ready for pick up at the meeting. In order to save postage, local members are asked to pick theirs up at the library. Out of town members’ newsletters will be mailed to them.
The dues are still $15.00 per year or $20.00 for a couple that wishes to receive only one copy of the newsletter.
Janella Hendon, President –Erath County Genealogical Society
