Spearsville High School 1935

Spearsville High School Class 1935

My mother, Norma Evelyn Poston, was born in Camp Creek, graduated from Spearsville School in 1935. My uncle, Leonard Poston, sold produce under the oak trees at Mt. Union Baptist Church & passed out little Bibles for many, many years.

My mother is on the top row, 2nd from left. She married my father, William Pinkney McKinnie. 3rd from left on the top row is Ethel Cook, wife of Guy Upshaw. They lived in Marion. She was Mom’s best friend all their life.




Originally from Union Parish and a resident of Farmerville, Jon R. McKinnie enjoys writing and spending time with his wife, Phyllis Richardson Hall, two children and four grandchildren.
