Othel Jones. Searcy AR teacher. On to Victory by his dad

Sheet Music

 I attended school in a tiny town in Georgia and I now think that when we gathered in the auditorium and a teacher led us in singing songs that the school was perhaps fulfilling a required music class.  When I was in college and majored in Art,  I was not required to take a music class because I already appreciated the arts.   SO......I know nothing about music.  I do not know what any of those note things mean when I see a sheet of music.  Now I wish I did because look what I have found.

Othel Jones was a teacher in Searcy Public Schools.  He died and at his estate sale (he saved a lot) I bought a bunch of old papers and teaching stuff that he had.  I found this in the gathering.  It is a piece of sheet music written as you can see above by Claude H. Jones and Mary H. Eden. It was published by Claude H. Jones, Hickory Ridge, Arkansas.  Also in the gathering was a little book titled, "Wason Wheeler Descendants" and on pages 14 and 15 it tells that Claude H. Jones had two sons, Norvin T Jones and Othel Orman Jones.  This song was dedicated to A/C Norvin T Jones, U. S. Army Air Force.

SO......I wish I could play it.  I wish, also, that I could find Norvin's children (the little book said he had 5 children) and see if they'd like to have these possible treasures.  I hope they find this blog!!  I am also going to see if someone will play this song from this sheet music for me.

I see that the name on this is spelled Claud but in the descendants book it is spelled Claude.

When I was a kid, and even in my 20s, I played the piano.  Not long ago, I opened the piano bench and found sheet music from that era.  I could barely remember the keys on the keyboard.  It had been that many decades since I played last.

Myrl, you are no help!  I'll have to find another person to play it.  Imagine how many people took piano lessons in the past and now are just like you.  LOL

I'm sure you will find someone. When you do, make sure you record it on your phone. I bet you could go to a music store and ask someone to play.

If you know how to contact Rosemary, ask her. If you do, tell her hello from me.

Hello Barbara - I am often amazed at the comments you receive from current and former Searcy residents.  It would be nice to see another such connection occur based on your "find".

Don, those are good ideas.  You know Rosemary lost her husband a few months ago?  She would be a good person to ask.  If I see her I will give her your message.

I do not know what any of those note things are either. ;o)  Good luck with your search.  BTW-my wife grew up in Searcy and I have visited your beautiful city numerous times.  We were married in your town 29 years ago.  I love it!

Raymond, how nice to know that you have visited Searcy and who is the lady that you married from Searcy?  I may know her.  Also, I had properties owned by the Hensons, who were African missionaries, that I sold them and managed them when they were in Africa.  Are you perhaps related?
