Birth of daughter Living GREGORY


  • Nieces and nephews called her Aunt Rettie.  Grandchildren called herGrandma.  From an early age our parents made sure we learned the fullnames of our grandparents and aunts and uncles.

    My mother Lou Ila Jenkins found among her papers a school report cardfor her mother, in the name Retta Green.  This was a report card forthe school year 1911-12 in Stephens County, Oklahoma.  The family wasliving a little south of Marlow, Oklahoma, at that time, in RichlandTownship.  The card does not give the name of the specific school.

    In the 1910 census, her name is not written clearly in the almostillegible hand of the enumerator.

    Rettie married Andy Gregory, whose family had lived nerby for severalyears in Richland Township, Stephens County, Oklahoma.  They marriedin October 1913.  They were still in Marlow when Andy registered forWWI in Marlow.  They appear in the 1920 and 1930 censuses in Lindsay,Garvin County.

    I remember visiting Grandma and Grandpa a lot on their farm south ofLindsey, Oklahoma.  At least two summers I went up and stayed withthem for a while.  I remember grandma reading her Bible to me everyevening, sitting in her rocking chair beside a small table with akerosene lamp.  When i stayed with them, I would walk with her about aquarter mile down the road to the section line corner for a HolinessChurch worship service held in the schoolhouse.

    Most family gatherings were held at their home.  I remember Christmasgatherings there.  Once we three boys stayed with Grandpa and Grandmawhile our parents went to the Texas State Fair in Dallas.

    I remember when my uncles built them a new house.  And I remember whenyears later they turned on the electricity to the house when the RuralElectric Cooperative got the system run to that part of the county.The Gregorys never did have a phone.  Andy and Rettie worked theirfarm, raising their own meat and vegetables.  I remember huntingsquirrels in their woods southeast of the house.  Andy also workedpart of the time for others in the Broom Corn fields, for whichLindsay was known in earlier years.  My mother told me about herfather and many of the men of the county working in the broom cornharvest.

    In a previous era, Lindsay was the broom corn capital of the world.When I was younger, there was a sign on each road as you enteredLindsay that presented the city's slogan, "Lindsay broom corn sweepsthe world."
