Floyd Bradberry 16th section McRae Beebe AR singers

 A picture from our own White County is on ebay right now.  It is a picture with the inscription "16th Section Singing School"  teacher Floyd Bradberry or Floyd Brobbery.  At the ebay site there are close-ups of parts of the picture so you can see if any of your relatives are there.  If it was a singing school it had singers of all ages.  The item also says that the 16th Section Church is outside Beebe and McRae AR.  Wonder which one of the men in the picture is the teacher Floyd. 

Google gives the address of the 16th Section Church as 3387 Hwy 267 South so when I drive back down there I may have to check it out.  But if you readers know about it, give us an update.

My guess is that's him seated on the front row. He was Jim and Bobby's dad. I remember him as being a good fellow.

The 16th Section Church is still there right on 267S and is an active church. It is about two miles south of Weir Cemetery. Weir Cemetery is on 267S on the left as you head south and in the curve of the road. It sits up on ground that is higher than they road. The cemetery and church are between Hwy 13 and the intersection of 267 Spur. At the other end of the Spur is Hwy 31. Hopes this gives you a point of reference. Wonder what year this was?

Brad, so it is Bradberry, not Brobberry?  I thought so.

Elizabeth, thanks for the information.  I'll check it out on my next trip to Beebe.

Don, I copied the picture!  You are so good at finding the old pictures on the blogs.  I had forgotten about this one.  Here's a link to the old blog.

It is Floyd Bradberry, sitting on the front row. He had a gospel singing group, and one member was his first wife, Blanche, who died at an early age of a brain tumor. Mr. Bradberry was my father-in-law. He and Blanche had 2 children, Billie June and Floyd, Jr. Years later he married Virgina Tucker, a nurse, originally from Crossett. They had 2 sons, Jimmy and Bobby, my husband. Mr. Bradberry has many careers, teacher, County clerk, County Judge and County Tax Collector. He was a very kind, loving, Christian man who lost 2 wives to untimely deaths, and raised Jimmy and Bobby alone. He married Fern Strickland 7-8 years after Virginia passed away. He passed away in October of 1989.

Susan, thank you for that information and history.  The blogs seem to be long-lived and someone will appreciate this information about this very nice man and his family.
