Friday's Photos: A Revisit to Bienville Parish Photos

Zelma Lucille Burroughs Jones

My recent posts containing photos from the Frye Family Collection need to be revisited. 

These two photos, posted on April 19, 2019, were thought to be Velma Louise Burroughs who graduated from Ringgold High School in Bienville Parish. 

The son of Velma Louise Burroughs saw the photos and stated this was not his mother but was his dearest aunt, Zelma Lucille Burroughs. 

Zelma Lucille Burroughs, the daughter of Stephen and Bennie Dell Burroughs, was the younger sister of Velma Louise. She was born in 1918, graduated from Ringgold High School in 1935, and married Malvin Samuel Jones on November 20, 1941. 

The photo of Mount Lebanon University, posted on April 26, 2019, was very faded and fuzzy. Several people belonging to Facebook groups History of Bienville Parish and Living Histories of Northwest Louisiana Families sent edited versions of the photos allowing us to more clearly view the details. Thank you all who sent photos! Here is one of the revisions below.
