Friends gave me a copy of Bethel Baptist Church minutes from 1900.

Log Trucks
An endless line of log trucks at Roy O Martin’s Oakdale Mill.  I come from the land of the pines.  The next day I traveled through miles of pine stands in LaSalle and Grant Parish.  We are truly the land of the pines.

 

 

Old House LIzard
Old House Lizard     Over fifty years ago, my great grandmother, Docia Iles, pointed out a lizard on this same porch.  “Baby, don’t ever hurt a lizard. They live here just like we do.  I still think of Doten where I see a lizard.
