ANNOUNCEMENTS

Doris Fay Windham Scott-Class of 1954

We were saddend to learn of the passing of Doris Faye on Aprl 13.  Doris lived out in the Weaver Community her whole life.  She was a neighbor of mine when I was growing up in Weaver.  She worked at Timpson ISD for many years as a secretary.  She will be missed by all that knew her.  God Bless Doris Fay, her family and many friends.

 

Class of !933 Lettermen

 

Class of 1933-This picture is the fall of 1932 lettermen.  The coach was Calos "Smiley" Davis.  The scores listed below are fairly correct.  In fact they may be more correct then our records.  The one big discrepancy is the Garrison game.  We cannot find the game in the newspapers.  However for a  few years Garrison did have a team.  This could have been the first game ever played between the two schools.  The 85 points scored by Timpson would still stand as a school record if so.

Other people on this team that did not letter and not in the picture are:  Long, T.P. Rutherson,Jr., "Speedy" Brooks, Melvin Ramsey, Theo McGee, Arthur Horton, Tom Ramsey, Boyce Anderson, Harold Bailey and Harry Askins.

This picture was sent to us by Kenny Smith-Class of 1965.  Kenny obtained it from the Alford Richards' estate who was a member of this team.  Thank-you Alford for preserving these memories all these years.

Addition of Old Classmates


As some of you may have noticed, this webite goes back to 1900.  Unfortunately we do not have the names of all the graduates back to 1900 to add to the site.  We have used the Timpson Area Genealogical & Historical Society (TAGHS) records to add names from the site from old graduation photos in their books and records.  However, from 1900 to about 1935 there are not many class photos available.  Even into the early 1940s there is no record  in some cases of what year some people may have graduated.  In order to fill in some blanks, we have decided to use old newspaper articles and in some cases peoples memories to fill in the blanks. What we are doing is putting "Circa" meaning about the year someone may have graduated or would have graduated.  For instance, they may be a old newspaper article listing the football players or mentioning a classmate, we just assumed they graduated...this may not be the case but we know they attended THS at some point around the date indicated.  Please do not use the names and dates as being correct as you will need to do further research...we just felt it would be more important to add classmates names then not.  Thank-you to TAGHS for all the help.

Olga Mims Hughes-Class of 1958

We are sad to learn of the passing of Olga on Monday March 24. She will be missed by her family and many friends.  She had just recently lost her son, Billy Hailey.   Rest in peace Olga and God Bless.

Harry Askins-Class of 1934
Right End for Bears in the Fall of 1933

Timpson Football District Alignment

The Texas UIL has aligned Timpson in a new district.  The members of the district in football are several old rivalies and some new ones:

!. Fruitvale
2. Maud
3. Mt.Enterprise
4. Overton
5. Tenaha
6. Timpson

For those of you not familiar with Fruitvale or Maud there will be some travel involved. Each school is about 115 miles from Timpson....one way.  Frutivale is close to Terrell...Go Bears!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ted Adams-Class of 1962


This is a "rubbing" from The Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington.  Ted graduated from THS in 1962.  He had only been in Vietnam three weeks and only one week in battle when he was killed in action on November 15, 1966.  He was just 22 years of age.  He is the only graduate of Timpson High School to died in Vietnam.  Several others from Timpson also died  in Vietnam.  God Bless Ted and the many others that gave their all.   Thank-you to Larry Hume for providing this rubbing.

 

 

Belle Salser

This article appeared in the Timpson Times somewhere around May of 1995.  As most of us remember she was working at Mac's Malt beginning in the early 1960s. In the early 1970s she went to work at the Timpson Drive-In and retired from there in 1995.  Wonder if she realized when she was cooking and serving those hamburgers and fries to all the students that went thru THS, the fond memories we would still have of her after all these years....She passed away in 2004 but not before feeding a lot of us and giving us good memories of Timpson  through out the years whenever and where ever we  would eat a burger!!!!

 

 

 

Timpson Football History 1920-1955

The Shelby County Historical Society has put all the newspaper articles from the Timpson papers on their site.  It covers the years from 1920 thru 1955.  David Pike from the Class of 1958 has been instrumental in getting this history together and so a big thanks to David and also to the Timpson Genelogical & Historical Socety (TAGHS) for their work and to the Shelby County Historical Society for their work also.  Click    here  for the link.

Don Willis & Sonny Tippett-Class of 1967-Two peas in a pod.  Sonny left us much too soon. 

Robin Hooper-Robin "Tood" Hooper wrote this poem and delivered it at the 1957 Athletic Banquet.  This poem was written about the 1956 Timpson Bears whose record was   8-2-0.  The team lost the first game of the season to Beckville 0-7 and the last game of the season to Corrigan, 0-6.  What was unusual was both games were played on a Saturday.  Full names mentioned in the poem are Willie Herndon, HM Fletcher, Ray Powers, Jimmy Scott, Billy Bailey, Bill Eldridge, Evert Crawford, Jerry Fitts, Kelsey Max Churchman, Johnny Yarbrough, David Pike, Vanard McDaniel and Bobby Roberts. 

For those of you not familiar with Robin Hooper, he was Tommy Mack Hooper father and Margo Hooper great grandfather.  At one time he was the sports editor for the Timpson Times in the 1930s.  In January of 1969 the Quarterback Club presented him with an award as "Mr. THS Football" for all his years of dedication to the team.

 Thanks to Willie Herndon for giving a copy to Melinda Schwab Harris who mailed it to us.  Oh, by the way the Bears defeated the Dogs 7-6 in what must have been a great game.
