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.

Goree Barber Shop

The picture is in the Goree Barber Shop and, if we figured correctly that Tuffy is about 10 years old, it was made about 1941.

Eva (McSwain) Pechacek gave the picture to Jackie (Latham) Styles at the Goree Homecoming. She knew that Tuffy, her brother, is the boy in the front chair and that George Crouch is the front chair barber. I borrowed the picture from Jackie, scanned and cleaned it some, and sent it to people that remember the 1930s and 1940s. Others came up with the name of the back chair barber, Tom Cowsar. Several were sure that the person in the back chair was one of the Moore boys. I cut the heads out of a 1943 Moore family picture and sent it to others to confirm that the back chair person was Nealie Moore. I then placed date/names on the picture.
