My grandmother, Rubie Broyles McCLELLAN, was raised in Fort Meade and graduated from the original high school there. Her parents, Rupert C. and Sara BROYLES McCLELLAN, later moved from Fort Meade to Tampa, and Rubie eventually married a man from Tennessee, Jack R. DAVIS.
For the rest of her life, Rubie corresponded with a high school friend, Zemla DOKE (who later married Daniel GRIFFITH).
I have been sharing, in blog posts, some of the pictures and memorabilia from my grandmother's letters with Zemla Griffith that I found in her papers, including information on two different high school reunions. The posts span several days. For instance, here's the post on the high school's history and an old photograph:http://afamilytapestry.blogspot.com/2014/02/a-brand-new-scho...
Other posts, beginning with the one appearing two days preceding the link above, continue through the rest of the month.
If you are related to my McCLELLAN family--or my grandmother's friend's DOKE family--I would love to hear from you, either by response here, or by comment on my blog. I would like to find more historic context for the years my McCLELLAN family lived in Fort Meade.
Thanks so much!
