     I was born in Sarepta and  was in first grade there (way back in 1935

when my parents announced during the Christmas holidays that we were

moving to Minden. Actually, we were moving to a rented house about

three miles north of Minden on the Lewisville Road.

     Upon arriving, we children began exploring our new surroundings,

including the corn crib. My four year-old sister, Shirley, looked around

at the corn cobs and corn shucks left by the previous tenants, and asked

Mother, "Is this Minden?"

     Mother replied yes, and Shirley remarked, "I didn't know Minden did

look so bad."




Does anyone have any pictures of the first grade class of 1935
