    My mother, Goldie Elizabeth Green Wilcken, was born in Monmouth in 12-1-1920. She graduated high school at McCune in 1941. Her father was C.A. “Dick” Green and her mother was Cordie Mae Green. (Second cousins) I recently came in possession of my mother’s photo albums that had old b/w photos from late 1800’s to 1947. Sir names in the album include: Bankston, Burris, Payne, Brisbin, Sartin, Nutt, Green, Brisbane, Nicholes, Kirchner, Depue, Wilks, Mishler, Davis, Stevens, Jones, Brooks, Daniels, Sturdefant… There are pics of McCune schools, McCune celebrations, wallet-size pics of classmates, football, cheerleaders, majorettes, etc. Depression Era photos of the rural Monmouth farms. ARE YOU INTERESTED IN THESE PHOTOS? I’d donate them if they would be used for genealogy and historical searches
