Orr, Oklahoma to Alanreed, Texas

Greetings!

I am sending these photographs in the hope that they may be useful to persons researching families that lived in either of these places in the earlier part of the twentieth century.

These pictures were in the possession of my grandmother, Dora Neal Agee and later my father. Dora appears in the photo of the large group in the front row of seated persons (second from right, wearing a dark dress, with her hands crossed in her lap). Her parents are in the center of the front row. Her father is Millard Filmore Agee (seated with legs spread) and her mother is Ella Marie Campbell Agee (seated to her husband's left). Her brother James Woodruff Agee (born Aug 1892) is seated second from the right on the porch roof. They were also traveling with Millard's mother Manerva Cooper Agee (born Jun 1833) and three other daughters (Vallie born Nov 1890, Salura born Sep 1896, and Laura born Nov 1898). I believe all the children were born in Orr. I didn't know my grandmother's sisters well enough to identify them and my grandmother only identified her parents and brother when she talked about the photo.

My grandmother's family appears in the 1900 census in the Chickasaw Nation and then in 1910 in Gray County TX. She told my father about traveling in this wagon train from Orr to Alanreed, but she didn't identify specific dates. Based on her appearance (she was born in Sep 1894), I am estimating this was about 1905-1907.

In the ranch picture Millard Agee is standing in the foreground.

The school photograph can be dated from the basketball which says 1912. My grandmother must have returned to attend school in Orr although her family was living in Alanreed by that date. Dora is at the far left and the man at far right she identified as the principal named Billy Bright.

Manerva Cooper Agee, Millard Agee, Ella Campbell Agee, James Woodruff Agee, and Vallie Bernie Agee (under married name Jackson) are all buried in the Alanreed Cemetery.

I am sorry that I have no further information about the other families in the pictures, but perhaps this may be useful to someone anyway.
