"My sister, who lives in Ardmore, told me about your web site. I have started writing a
""book"" about my childhood for my two children and future grandchildren. This brought
back so many memories, although I just went to Russett School my first year of school in
1952. Recently I went by the school and took pictures but your's are much better. Mrs.
Portman was my first grade teacher and I remember her husband as being the
Superintendent. Mrs. Portman took me under her wing and was very kind to this skinny
little girl that was so shy. I was thinking there were cedar trees in the yard that we played
under, but the picture didn't reflect it. Thank you so much for your efforts. Linda (Griffin)

 "1-21-07 Imogene (Dake) McDaniel says "" She remembers playing basketball for
Russett and their two worst rivals they wanted to beat if they beat no one else was Ravia
and Mannsville. She said their ball uniforms were black shorts with white tops with black
numbers on the shirts. She says they were the Russett Eagles. She says her mother Jack
(Boyer) Dake played baslet ball in Grade school in the 1915 to 1917 and in those days
they had suis that the shorts were long bloomers that came down to just above the knee.
In those days the basketball court was an outside court. " "Imogene (Dake) McDaniel"

 "Hey, Larry, This is one of your Murray classmates, Sid Caperton. I really like your
Russett website, and I thought I would make a couple of comments. As you may
remember I am from Ravia. But The Caperton family first came to Ravia via Russett. So
I do have a Russett connection. The Capertons moved to Russett from Mannsville about
1898. My father Roy, and two sisters, were already in the family at that time, having been
born in Hamilton, TX. But the next two of my uncles were both born in Russett....George,
in 1900, And Joe, in 1903. The family lived in a house which would now be in that big
field NW of the Russett School House. They all moved to Ravia around 1904. Later on,
(around 1919, or so) my mother taught school at Varner, which (I think) was down close
to the River, North of the School House. You may know where Varner was. Keep up the
good work. Sid Caperton" "Sid Caperton" "2509 Weymouth Place, Norman OK, 73071"

reading the Russett site. My dad and his family were all born and raised around the
Mannsville and Russett area. I can remember going to visit different places in Russett and
Mannsville when I was a child. My dads name is O.Z. James. He was born in Mannsville
on February 4, 1925. He attended school in Mannsville and in Russett. He did not
graduate from either school but has gone back through the years to the alumni banquets.
His parents were H.E. and Mamie James. He has 5 brothers and 3 sisters. All of his
sisters were born in Mannsville and one of his brothers was born in Russett. The other
brothers were born in Baum, Berwyn and Ravia. His sister Lindle married Lawrence
Lemons. His brother Ancel married Leona Lemons. Another brother married Serena
Martin. My dad still talks about his childhood and memories he has of Russett and
Mannsville. Three of the brothers are deceased and two o f his sisters are deceased. My
dad lives in Midwest City and has enjoyed visiting the Russett Website. I don't mind if
you publish what I have written. I think it is an excellent website. Thank you, Donna

""Lawrence, I couldn't figure out how to contact Wendyle Andews to tell him that his
family history was very interesting. I am Glynda Bro wn Herndon, a younger sister of
Mona Jo Cumbie. The memories I have of Russett are vague but what I do remember are
pleasant. One of the social highlights was when the Washita River was out of banks and
everyone gathered at the bridge to watch the water rise and the trash rush down the river.
A ded animal always created excitment. It didn't take much to entertain us. It was
especially pleasant to read that Wendyle remembered Daddy's (Aus Brown) surgery. His
memory is excellent, however it wasn't his chest b ut a tumor on one of his kidneys. It was
quite large and the doctors might have painted a gloomy outcome. As we all know,
Daddy lived to be almost 98 and was able to take care of himself for 15 years after Mama
died. In the early 1980s, he had to have a procedure done and we found that he only had
one kidney. The tumor had encased the kidney and it was removed. Apparently in 1951 it
wasn't necessary for doctors to tell everything that was done to a patient. I remember the
cellar trips to the Taylors. We popped gallons of popcorn and I remember the oatmeal
cookies. They were the no bake ones. In looking back the storms were probably not bad
but the grownups needed to have a little social time. What fun we had!!! Also, had we
continued to live at Russett, I would have graduated in 1958. I finished the 8th grade
there and was the lone girl in the class of about 10-12 boys. I graudated from Kingston,
attended SOSU and retired from there in 2004. I was the secretary of the Visual Arts
Department. You can post this if you want to. I am not proofing." "Glynda Brown

share to the best of my ability. I remember all of the people at my grannies and grandpas
place (Leet and Dave) what a great place for people to gather. I have so many memories
out in the pastures, gardens, with the pigs, on the tractor, in the barns, gathering eggs, the
bees, dunking the cats in the water from the outside spicket overspill, that ole tree fallin
in the yard we used to paly on, Bambie..the list goes on. I know I have met so many of
the folks on this site, of course many are related or it atleast feels like I have grown up

Larry,

Thanks, I appreciate it. No I have not had contact with Donna as of yet, I just learned of
her. I had some contact a few years back with Nova, but not as of late.

I really do not have and information on the James' that lived in Russett other than what I
learned on your site today. And I have no pictures. Today was the first time for me to
even see what my Grandfather (Ancel James) looked like, I never met him (I have visited
his grave).

I was adopted when I was young. But I have birth records, marriage records to prove my
blood connection to Mike James, Ancel's son. I lived 20 minutes from them in Ponca, and
never saw them. They lived in Blackwell. I have had some contact with Goldia Clonts,
She is my aunt. And a half sister Lisa botts. I wish I could give you more assistance, for
all of the wonderful insight I gained from your sight. Thank you very much!

Thanks again,

in my life and I spent the next 10 years or so searching for a replacement. You and I both
know thats an impossibility. I realized that a few years later. I then sat down and made a
list of the people i had known over the years who had made a lasting impression on me.
This was to be a short list of people I had not seen in years and would like to see again.
The short list contained 4 names. One of those was a classmate and friend from my
Russett days. I contacted all the people on my list except one and when I received the
invitation to the reunion I decided I had procrastinated too long and committed to finding
and having a conversation with Patsy Smith. During the visitation at about 5 or 5:30, Fay
May and I were looking at some pictures. I finally had enough courage to ask ""what ever
happened to Patsy Smith?"" Fay told me she had died during the last year. I spent the
next 30 minutes or so recovering from what I had learned. I was devastated - I had lost a
friend from the past but more importantly, if I had acted on my intentions - to contact the
people who were on my list, I would have been able to talk with her before she died. WE
ARE ALL GETTING OLDER - IF YOU HAVE A LIST AS I DID, ACT ON IT NOW."

replacement. You and I both know thats an impossibility. I realized that a few years later.
I then sat down and made a list of the people i had known over the years who had made a
lasting impression on me. This was to be a short list of people I had not seen in years and
would like to see again. The short list contained 4 names. One of those was a classmate
and friend from my Russett days. I contacted all the people on my list except one and
when I received the invitation to the reunion I decided I had procrastinated too long and
committed to finding and having a conversation with Patsy Smith. During the visitation at
about 5 or 5:30, Fay May and I were looking at some pictures. I finally had enough
courage to ask ""what ever happened to Patsy Smith?"" Fay told me she had died during
the last year. I spent the next 30 minutes or so recovering from what I had learned. I was
devastated - I had lost a friend from the past but more importantly, if I had acted on my
intentions - to contact the people who were on my list, I would have been able to talk
with her before she died. WE ARE ALL GETTING OLDER - IF YOU HAVE A LIST
AS I DID, ACT ON IT NOW." "Frank Behrens" "4912 Redbud Dr,SandSprings,

sweetier, as well as tasty even when they have been in the sun all day. I remember when I
was somewhere around 10, riding on the back end of the trailer attached to grandpas
tractor, that ole John Deere all of the grandkids usually me, my brother Doug and Kim,
maybe cousin Kevin would all ride down to the garden and grannie and grandpa
Eggenberg had the biggest garden I ever remember seeing; we would ride down the tree
line usually one of us driving, and grandpa making us laugh by acusing us of drinking
Jim, or Jack or some other kind of whiskey while he moved that wheel back and forth
crazy like we were drunk. We'd get down to the garden and pick watermelons, potatoes,
tomaotes, whatever we needed to pick, usally by the time we got back to the house he'd
split open a watermelon and we would eat right there. Man do I remember the taste. Miss
those watermelons, but still love them. You may use all of my stories I submit" "Mary

remember Mother would take a fruit jar of water for me (long winded sermon?) The first
song I remember was ""Love Lifted Me"". I thought the water they were talking of in that

"I have enjoyed the information regarding the history of the Russett Baptist Church.
When our family first moved to Russett, I was in the second grade. I can remember
walking from our home (1/4 miles east of Laddie Creek on the Randolph Road) to the
church on Sundays. When the weather was bad, my sister or Dad would drive us to
church. When it was nice, Dad would tell us that gasoline was too expensive and he
would send us on our way. My brothers and I would walk the 2 or 3 miles (it seemed like
5 or more at the time ) to church. Mr Portman was not only our superintendent at the
school but he also taught a Sunday school class. We rarely missed a Sunday. Halfway to
church was the windmill near Kirtleys place on Randolph road. When it was hot, we
would always stop at the windmill for a cool drink. " "Frank Behrens" "4912 Redbud

"Can anyone give me some information on Jimmie Davis. He and I created lots of havoc
during the 50s and i havent heard about him in more than 50 years. I remember when i
was a junior in HS at Russett ( this was just before we moved away) Jimmie offered me
50 cents to turn the clock ahead 30 minutes. (Remember the clock in our study hall-
library? It was used to ""ring the bell"" for lunch,class changes and the end of the school
day. It was a manual thing - i dont remember whose responsiblity it was to ""ring the
bell"" but well - 50 cents was a lot of money - i moved the clock ahead 30 minutes and
school ended 30 minutes early. It didnt take long for Mr Portman and Mr Murk to figure
out who did it. Mr Portman was MAD. Mr Murk introduced me to the ""board of

 "I am intrigued by the Forum comments from Amber Underwood dated 9/24/2007. I
attended Russett school in the 40s and 50s and was in school with Gene and Chestine
Underwood. I believe they had and older sister named Geraldine. I am curious about the
date of the drowing of Tina Marie Montetatchi. I had an older brother, James, who had
rheumatic fever as a child and serious heart problems as an adult. He died in 1977. Some
years before his death, he was traveling toward Mannsville - he stopped at the creek east
of Mannsville in response to a plea for help. Twin girls were in the creek and both were
in danger of drowning. One was saved and the other drowned. This haunted my brother
for the remainder of his life. He was haunted by the fact that both girls could not be saved
from the stream. I could be mistaken but I believe he said the girls were the daughters of
Geraldine Underwood. We talked about this incident many times. It bothered him that
both girls were not saved. I continued to tell him that ""you did all that you could"". He
always said ""it wasnt enough - one of the girls drowned""." "" "" "" "" "10/14/2007"
