My Geographical History – a sort of Geobiography

  • These are the places I can remember living at.
  • If you can remember anything at all, please add the information.
  • What I am looking for is names of schools and what grade I was in when we lived where ever it was we were living at the time and addresses of where we lived.
  • I want to create a sort of history map and try to write down things I can remember now because I won’t always be able to remember.
  • My first memories are of some place we lived at that I remember christmas from. You walked in the front door and the christmas tree was on the right. there was a hall way in the middle of the room to the right. It seems like the kitchen was behind a wall directly after you walked in the front door and the dining area was across from the living room and the kitchen. Kind of like an L shape with the L turned upside down. The kitchen would be on the top left with the dining area on the top right and the living on the bottom right. the hall way was between the top right and bottom right areas and led to the bed rooms. I remember getting a car/van thing that had little people in a window on the front of it and a steering wheel on the top of it and you sit on it and ride it. I think it was weeble wobbles that went in it behind the little window in the front. I don’t remember much else about that place except I think that is where we lived when daddy got in his motorcycle accident.
  • I remember Larue when we lived close to the Richardsons ( I think that was their names) out in the country.
  • Then I remember moving to where daddy lives now in the trailer.
  • I faintly remember living somewhere else for a very short time somewhere in here. I remember going to the school in Athens to get shots or something because I was supposed to be going to school in Athens but we ended up moving away from Athens.
  • Then we moved to the little house by the railroad tracks next to the big field with the hole in the wall and the drop down ladder in the ceiling in the hall way next to the bathroom. I think that was pointer or something like that.
  • I think we moved to Granddaddy’s after that to the trailer up at the front of his place close to the cattleguard (not sure on the order of all of these places).
  • I know we lived in Clarksville in a couple of different places before you met Joe. I remember living next to Barry behind the Laundry Mat.
  • It seems like we lived in one other place in Clarksville around this time as well.
  • Then some time around here we got the new brick house and lived there.
  • That’s when you met Joe and I think that is all I can remember of the moves up until that time.
  • After Joe, We moved from the brick house back to Grandaddy’s for a little while when that lady was going to buy the house (I think).
  • Then we moved to Hurst ( I think it was hurst). I know it was a white house with a detached garage and a sunk in den. I guy named randy lived with us while we lived there.
  • I also remember living with Uncle Jimmy for a while (don’t know if it was before or after hurst) but I don’t remember where that was at.
  • We moved to garland and lived in some apartments on the second floor at the end closest to the outside. Joe’s kids stayed with us that summer. There was a creek right behind it and I got stung by Yellow jackets and swelled up and you got your money and cigarette case stolen when you took me to the clinic.
  • We lived in Grand Prairie in some apartments as well. It was on the bottom floor and we used to walk over and get Taco Bell all the time. That is the place that Aunt Susie helped us move from in the middle of the night and Joe didn’t know about it. Where did we move to?
  • We lived in Watauga in a nice house where I got my new bicycle for my birthday and then someone stole it when I rode it to school. I played football the first school year we were there (or maybe it was the next year). That is were I first started wearing my spike hair cut because I remember getting my hair cut and the lady suggesting it. I remember copying a bunch of church money to buy things with at vacation bible school and never actually using them. I remember a lot of things about this place.
  • It seems like we moved to Kiomatia after that, just down the road from Uncle Earnest’s store.
  • Then we moved to the house were max got ran over by the big truck and Joe shot up the house with the gun. It was white and had a covered carport attached to the house and had big pine trees.
  • I just remembered you dating a police officer or Highway Patrolman (before Joe) and us having Christmas at his house. He lived out in the country (somewhere around that white house I was just talking about but closer to Clarksville on the road that goes to Woodland I think.) and was really nice. I think we lived in Clarksville at the time.
  • After this we moved to the house in Clarksville, right across the railroad tracks in a trailer. This is where Joey ran through the shed while you were in the house for a moment getting something. I had my thirteenth birthday here.
  • From there we moved to Annona, the house that was right next to the railroad tracks.
  • Next was Athens in the trailer park. We only lived there a short time.
  • Then we moved to the house on the hill (in Athens) with the basement and the bees in the wall. It had a really nice lake/pond out in the pasture. Blake lived with us for a little while there.
  • We then moved to Rockwall
  • Then to Quinlan
  • Greenville at the trailer park (where we managed it and reopened the laundry mat).
  • Greenville on the other end of Oneal to the house we were buying from John Rigale.
  • Then I moved to Philly and lived in the row home next to Johnny Margiatto.
  • Then I moved to Balch Springs TX when we got married
  • Then we moved to Jack’s for a little while.
  • Then we moved to Commerce drive were we started to buy our first house.
  • Then I moved to Lebanon and lived in an upstairs duplex.

  • Then it was King st. where we worked on fixing the house that Gary Borlaise was renting to us.
  • Then we moved to Conway and lived in the two story that we rented from the guy at church.
  • Then we bought the brick house in Lebanon across from Copeland.
  • Then we bought land out in Plad.
