William Mason and Margie (Branscum) Treat Family

Machine generated alternative text: Sherman Treat Ruth Janie Harriett Lawrence William M Treat Margie E M S Branscum

William Mason and Margie (Branscum) Treat were my great grandparents, the parents of my grandfather Sherman Treat.

I never met my Great-Grandfather William as he died before I was born. But I met my Great Grandmother Margie a few times before her death in 1976. She was a small woman but with what I would call a forceful personality. She was very direct and knew what she wanted and was going to get it.

She had this really long hair that she usually kept in a bun on the top of her head. I don’t think that she had ever cut her hair.

Grandma Gwen (Stout) Thompson and her father Claude Stout

Grandma Thompson and Great—Grandpa Stout holding their catch

This photo was taken in the early 1970s on Brogden Street in Springdale, Arkansas. Grandpa Stout and Grandma Stout lived on Brogden Street and Grandma and Grandpa Thompson lived on Old Wire Road.

When we were kids visiting Grandma and Grandpa Thompson we would walk through the back yards and go from Grandma and Grandpa Thompson’s house up to Grandpa Stout’s to visit him and then we would usually go next door and visit Aunt Mabel.
