    My great uncle, Clifton Guy White, was killed in a sawmill accident at the age of 16 in 1909. I don’t know if it was at the Brown sawmill but he did live nearby in or near Oakley.

    My maternal grandmother’s side of the family were Duke and Weeks. Her mother was Emma Duke Harris and her father Edmund Weeks Harris. Have a feeling they were somehow related to the families from whom these photos come. J.T.Weeks in the photo pictured in his store in Prattville might very well be my grandmother’s fathers side of the family. Will have to check further about this. Interesting.
