The reunion was held especially for the former students, teachers, and residents and their fami- lies of any and all of the three communities(now combined into ONE community since transportation is easier than was the case in days of the 90s through the 40s). More than 200 people at- tended this second reunion at Merrick. Several states were represented at the con- vention, including one family from San Diego, Calif. Mrs. Humphrey was ac- corded special honors not only because she was the oldest person present (92 years) but because it was unanimously agreed that Mrs. Humphrey and her family had "contributed more to the education of the area, and the state or states where some of her children have moved, than any other one family in the commun- and also was County Agricul- tural Agent for several years. later the family moved to a farm northeast of Guthrie where the Humphreys own. ed and operated a half sec- tion of fertile land. While managing his farm, Nell Humphrey was dedica- ted to improvement of not only crops care and improve- ment of soils, but in the im- provement of breeds of beef cattle, hogs, and work animals. Mr. Humphrey maintained a Percheron stal- lionand a good jack. The five children of the Humphrey family all became teachers, in their early adulthood. They were Marguerite Humprey Canning (Mar- guerite taught at both Mc- Kinley and Merrick), John Humphrey (now retired mail carrier) of Stiilwater, Merle Humphrey Rickstrew(Mrs. Carol Rickstrew of Diamond Valley), Merle taught at McKinley and Meridian; Dorothy Humphrey McCor- kle (Mrs. Lloyd McCorkle of Guthrie) and Jama Humph- rey Decker (Mrs. Matt Decker) of Stuttgart, Ark., Jama taught in Arkansas af- ter she was married. And, though none of the Humphrey family(Nell's and Ethel's son and daughters) are still teaching, the four who survive are busy, and active being good Americans all are hoping that they too will be able to perform as does their mother. Ethel at 92 still makes pictures, us- ing almost any medium in- cluding human hair, feather flowers, any kind of art work she takes into her mind to do. Interested in people and things, Mrs. Humphrey is a delight to know. Not the least of Ethel's interests is her four remaining children, ten grandchildren and 27 great grandchildren. *** Bill Driskel who has de- cided to quit farming had a sale at his place Tuesday evening when he sold his farm machinery, at auction. This is green bean canning week for local gardeners. It is also blackberry season.
