  • The man in the picture appears to me to be Charlie Russell (Haywood's Father). Some of the best times of my young life were when a group of friends of the Russells gathered at his farm in Pleasant Grove during the winter time for Rook, Ham and Biscuits, and cold Coca-Colas straight from a 6oz. bottle.

  • Your memory brought my own of families gathering for card games and we kids would play marbles.

    Boy, I can remember some sore fingers. Basically mine was a thumb, but we had some pinch shooters as well. Never got a good handle on that style.

  • Steve your memory also brought one back for me about how I used to store my marbles in a Prince Albert tobacco can that I carried around in my bib overall pocket. Likewise, I never was known for my marble shooting prowess.

  • Sounds like you were ready to play at any time. Bet you shot better than you say.

  • It looks like Mr. Charlie Russell. He always wore that type of hat.
