Frank (none) Fulgham and Minnie L. (Garton) Fulgham


Minnie's family: William Mark Garton and Martha Ellen (Cornell) Garton
According to Aunt Millie:
We moved from Hollis, OK and arrived in Amherst, TX on January 1, 1924. We used 2 covered wagons and a flat-bed.
We were supposed to have a 3-bedroom house waiting for us in Amherst. When we got there, there was only a sucker-rod sticking in the ground. It was 1 mile east of the depot on the highway.
Pa Bill had also traded for a paperd horse in Red River. When he went to bring the horse back, the horse had run through a fence and had to wait 2 weeks for the horse to heal.

Frank bought a truck and combine the summer of 1946 to do custom wheat harvest starting in Eastern NM and working his way north. Apparently he made it all the way to Goodland, KS by July. Here is a series of letters Minnie and Frank sent to each other from around July 4, 1946 through July 15.

Photographs from war-torn Europe.
Bert Peterson, a close friend with both Minnie and Frank. I thought that he may have been one of Minnie's boyfriends, but the letters he wrote and comments he wrote on the back of some of the photos seems to disprove that.
Peterson sent numerous photos from Europe during World War II. He is also the person that brought back the German bayonet, and the German money.

Frank and Minnie had a long standing friendship with Bernard and Viola McGregor. I think they danced in every honky-tonk in eastern New Mexico and west Texas. Some of the favorite stories took place at the old Midway Dance Hall between Clovis and Portales.
