Special to The Sun—
MEMPHIS – Hall County Historical Commission members met for their monthly meeting on Oct. 13 at the courthouse in Memphis. Eight members and one guest were present.
The Commission had recently been contacted by email about possibility that the cenotaph which has been in front of the Alamo for many years might be moved or demolished. Members were happy to hear at this meeting that the state commission voted against allowing the cenotaph to be disturbed.
Articles about pioneer Hall County residents are still being sent in to be included in a book which is planned to be published in 2021. Anyone who like to honor some family member or friend by sending in an article about him/her is urged to contact Lera Kate Powell at 806-259-3131 or 1301 Brumley St. Memphis, TX 79259.
Several pictures taken in early-day Memphis and some World War II ration stamp books were available for the members to see. These items have recently been donated to the Hall County Heritage Hall.
Anyone who is interested in preserving the history of Hall County is welcome to attend the next meeting, which is scheduled for Nov. 9 at 2:30 p.m.
Those present were Bobby and Dixie Barbee, Karen Crisman, Danny Davidson, Mike Hughes, Mollie Moffitt, Randy Phillips, Powell and Mandy Proffitt.
