ABOUT CLAY GRADED SCHOOL (from letter to Robert L. Lytal from Mrs. Leister E. Presley)
The Clay Graded School was in operation at Clay for a period of 3 years from 1907-1910. It was usually referred to as the Clay High School and most former students agree the school was very strict in allowing communication between girls & boys, and that Mr. Boggs was a very fine teacher. Judging by the results, I believe both of these things were true.
No talking or asscociation of any kind was allowed between the boys & girls & no courting, even outside school hours, unless the rules were suspended for special occasions. Love will find a way. There were at least 13 marriages made in the group attending the first 2 years, and there may have been others. This was about 25% of the total students. The following are the students who married, most of the marriages occurring after they were out of school.
*Albert Boggs to Lillie Crow
*Linn Cook to Margie Rone - they were farmers near Pangburn
*Conrad Fields to Myrtle Smith
*Alma Howell to Sudie Brower - Mr. & Mrs. Howell moved to Searcy after he retired from farming. His farm was near Clay.
*Kenneth Crook to Eva Henderson - Mr. Crook served as postmaster at Pangburn.
*Gibbon Lytal to Eva Hall - Mr. Lytal lived near Clay.
*Bernice Majors to Lucy Cunningham
*Alonzo Nelson to Cora Sherrod - Mr. & Mrs. Nelson devoted their lives to teaching. They retired in Judsonia.
*Luther Presley to Maggie Yingling - Maggie Presley died in 1922, leaving 2 sons, Leister & Clarence Presley. Mr. Presley was a singer & a song writer. He was associated with Stamps Baxter Music Co. for many years.
*Sam Ray to Mary Adcock - Mr. & Mrs. Ray taught school and he later operated a cotton gin at Pangburn. Mrs. Ray lived at Clay.
*John Wise to Foy Pate - Mr. Wise was a retired farmer & they lived near Clay.
*Ora Yingling to Emma Adcock - Mr. Yingling served as school teacher, County Clerk, Searcy Postmaster, bank cashier as well as many civic activities. Mrs. Yingling lived on East Race St. in Searcy.
*James F. Boggs to Blanche Leggett - Yes, Mr. Boggs found a wife from the school. Mr. Boggs passed away, but not before he had seen the fruits of his labor in the lives of his students. Mrs. Boggs lived on W. Woodruff Ave., Searcy.
