Monday, January 14, 2013

The James County Historical Society will meet Sunday, February 3, 2013 at 2:30pm in the Ooltewah Methodist Church in the Sunday School addition for an unusual meeting.

 

Doug Roy will present the program about history of the Roy Family in the area.  Roy Lane north of Ooltewah bears the family’s name.

 

Everyone is invited and there is no charge.

 

The James County Historical Society has lost many of its “old-timer” members and has reduced the number of meetings to only four (4) per year.  In the space of sixteen (16) recent months we lost:

 

      2011 - Jean Brooks died on February 5

      2011 - Charlotte Deane Allen died on June 18

      2012 - Edna Fairbanks died on May 7
