Come see us...

Goree is a quaint, quiet town with easy access to the lake, guided hunting/fishing, hunting lodges, RVing, camping and extremely affordable real estate for your very own hunting headquarters. Finally, Goree has the last stop for bait, beverages and snacks before heading to the lake, Millers Creek Reservoir.

Some memories from Keith...

Some time ago, Reba sent me an email to add her Aunt Sunny to my Goree Email Group List. I called Reba on the phone and told her that I didn't remember an Aunt Sunny and asked who she was. Reba explained to me in a round about way that Aunt Sunny was her mother's (Tennie "Thornton" Tynes) sister. She finally mentioned "Eunice Thornton", duh, then I knew who we were talking about. Eunice is a first cousin to my Mother.

AT times like this we don't always get everyone included in an obituary. The newspaper obituary for Reba didn't include Aunt Eunice 'Sunny' (Thornton) Tackett. From what I understand, Aunt Sunny and Reba, along with Reba's sister, Jeanie, are very close. Aunt Sunny was present (I'm guessing age about 13 or 14 then) when Reba was born a little over sixty-seven years ago.
This is one of my favorite pictures from the olden days that some of you might enjoy. Reba's and Jeanie's Mother, Tennie (Thornton) Tynes is on the right in the picture.

If I remember correctly Reba & Rhiney adopted a daughter, I can't remember her name but I do remember that there was a daughter and I believe she had 1 or 2 daughters.
