    1. I'm glad to hear from you! Mom and I would stop and visit your grandmother Edith - I remember her very well. Your mother, or Aunt, would be familiar with the name Linda Halstead (my mother)

    2. I remember Lillie and Ed. We would even meet at the little house there in Streeter. I am the same age as Howard Vest. Howard and I roamed all over the place together as kids. My Grandpa Charlie Pack used to take me to see the kin, and always caught up with Uncle Guy Basham, Carl and "Brother" Vest and the Jack Pack family. Mom and Dad said Hi.

  2. Have enjoyed the blog; my father S K Bennett is the grandson of A B & Mary Pack & owns the property where the old Post office stood. He has an extensive knowledge of our side of the family & a lot of memories of Streeter. We can both be found on Facebook (Steven Bennett & Mary Kaye Bennett) & have some old family photos on our sites.

    Hi Brian I think I met you at Jack Pack's house a couple of years ago and I think you own the old (red) house that I grew up in. My parents were Ester and Ora Cooper Pack. The picture of Ester and Pearl Pack says they were the sons of Andrew Pack but actually only Ester is his son. Pearl was the son of Wash Pack,Andrew's brother. Pearl was Jack Pack's father. Love the picture of my father in the WPA picture. I had never seen it before. Thank you.

    1. Charlotte, it's nice to hear from you. I think I remember meeting you.

      The photo...Yes, thank you for catching that. That was probably my oversight.

      If you have any stories you would like to share about your family, please let me know and I will be happy to post them.

      -Brian

    1. Hi, Sheila. I enjoy the research. I'm not sure what information you need. There are some things I know but far more I don't know - one of the reasons I started this blog was to find the answers myself. So, I'll try my best to help :)

  7. Brian, I have greatly enjoyed reading your blog and it brings back wonerful childhood memories of going to reunions at Rhoda Ann Church in the 1960's. My name is Michael Pack, son of Ray Pack, grandson of Winnie Henderson Pack, great grandson of Samuel Tilden Pack.
    I have been fortunate enough to have inherited a receipt book from my great grandfather that shows many transactions that he made for land and goods around 1900. Thank you for your quality research into my roots.

  8. Hi, Michael, I'm glad you're enjoying it. Lately, I haven't had the time to contribute much. Hopefully I'll find the time over the winter break to add some things. Come back and post. I enjoy the comments!

  9. Brian, this is a treat. My mom grew up on Panther Knob and went to school at Streeter. She is 83 now and recognizes many of the names. Some are relatives. Our latest news from Streeter is that there is now a stop sign.

  11. How do I prove Mahala Pack was a daughter of Bartley Pack? She married Isaac Glass Young. First child Andrew Bartley Harvey Young.
    Thank you. Pat

    1. I''m not sure because the only thing I find is an 1820 census (under Bartley Pack) Early censuses often did not give names of children (just number of children in household). But, maybe you can trust books written on the subject (I cover books in other articles). By the way, are you aware that there are a number of photos and info about Bartley on Ancestry.com? Hope this helps.
