    I was trying to look for old Billingsley School pictures when I ran across your articles. I live a mile away from the old Billingsley Depot.

    I was wondering…where exactly your house was located when you were growing up? The story about the poor feller on the train tracks caught my interests. Did you know his last name?

    Great articles!

    I’m delighted to finally hear from some one in Billlingsley!

    You asked where around Billingsley I grew-up: I was born and spent the first fifteen years of my life on Ped Mills’ original land grant. It’s located three miles out of Billingsley on the (used-to-be) dirt road that runs in front of the Gas line Pumping station.

    About three months before my fifteenth birthday, Daddy bought a house in Billingsley. I believe it was built by the Patrick’s in the thirties. It sat at the base of the hill where John Will Patillo lived.

    It was so nice to hear from you. I was out of pocket, so it took longer to respond than I would have liked.

    Do you have any pictures of the old depot or of the old Billingsley school?
