Looking Back

Faces and places from the past are featured each week in Looking Back, sponsored by Standard Supply, and we invite you to share your memories here.

If you can identify anyone or remember the occasion, please scroll down and leave a comment.

We hope someone can tells us who is being crowned and who the runners up are, because there are no names on the photo. We’re not sure what the pageant was either, but are guessing a late 1970s or early 1980s date. Do you see anyone you know? If you do, call Sherri at 423-9331 or send an email.

Bobbie Biggers, Judy Gibbs, Betty Eastridge and Peggy Ash all identified their brother, Charles Couch, who died last year, as the boy standing fifth from left on the third row. Charles was the only son in a farm family with eight children, but sister Betty says, “He kept us in line.” Brenda Paul, who shared this picture of Mrs. Cumbee’s fifth grade class at Ocilla Elementary has identified some of the other students. Pictured are (from left): first row, two unidentified, Allen Spicer, Kyle Roberts, Larry Harper and unidentified; second row, Brenda Morgan Paul, Gail Tindall, two unidentified, Marilyn Walker Seagroves, unidentified, Emily Ann Johnson, unidentified, Paula Turner Daniels and Brenda Hobbs Cooper; third row, Shelby Jean Handley, unidentified, Darrien McClelland, unidentified, Charles Couch, Mary Frances Royal Cantrell and Marsha Ross Davis, and fourth row, Mrs. Cumbee (the mother of Fitzgerald’s Joe Cumbee), Pete Clements, Mackie Daniel, two unidentified and Damon Ross. Royce Moore contacted us to identify his lifelong friend, Tommy Waller, in the July 5 picture. They were friends from age 3, Royce says, adding that he has “many fond memories.”

Please put the year the pictures were make, if it is known. Thanks, I enjoy looking each week to see if I know anyone.

Editor: Thanks for looking. We don't always know the year as they have been brought to us by someone or we found in our files. If we know the year, we will add it. Thanks, Luke.
