My daughter (law enforcement) and her co-worker made a trip to GEARY OK.... she called and said yes she remembered that Papa Huggins pastored in a little town called Geary,OK. Affecectionately --- daddy had events where members would hug us.... and he referred to them as his GEARY GIRLS !!! Good stock, good families!!
So daughter made the drive around the small town, asked me to remember the name of the Church..... I only knew COGIC.... there was one Holiness church, one Methodist church, etc in that community...
So apparently.... after daddy left in maybe 1980-something..... A new Pastor was assisgned and certainly.... the old small building that I remember was torn down.... And a wonderful new structure is in its' place. I don't remember Daddy updating or re-building in Geary.
I told my daughter that I remember a PARSONAGE.... (what's that?) It's the small home next door to a church -- providing a place for us to stay (thinking of kinda itinerant preachers or the cotton-farming communities of the 1950-1960's...who often had large families to support).
So here goes..
I google-searched to find information on the Pastor..??
This shows the address of South and Blaine Avenue..... This was a small house near the church !!!
I'm grinning from ear to ear .... to recall and cherish my family history.....
