Walton High School Football Team

Walton High School Football Team

The members of the Walton High School football team are identified, but we are uncertain which year this team played. Jack Little (No. 63 in the middle) graduated from Walton High School in 1944, so this team probably played in the fall of 1940, 1941, 1942, or 1943. Please contact us if you know. The players are:

(front row, left to right) 64. P. Anderson; 27. Hugh Hill; 65. A. Hinger; 56/36. George M; 11. T. H. Pullmen; 72. Louis F. Cawthon; 55. Walter Jackson

(middle row, left to right) 52. Bill Sharpe; 73. Devon Whitehead; 21. H. Henderson; 17. Wilmen Neil; 63. Jack Little; 60. Wilbur Heart; 59. Casey Jones; 68. John Sims; 69. Harold Tilley

Street Fair in DeFuniak Springs

The Billboard was a weekly magazine published in Cincinnati, Ohio, that listed events across the country. The following listing for DeFuniak Springs appeared under the heading “Street Fairs and Carnivals” in the issue for September 15, 1900.

A similar listing appeared in 1901, showing the dates for the street fair as October 4 and 5, 1901, and the officers as W. L. Cawthorn [sic], president; R. W. Storrs, secretary; and Howell Jones, treasurer.
