Mack and Ben Leonard, Grady and Earl Roberts, Charles and Dee Adams, Charlie and Earl Wilbanks, Wallace Thompson, Fred Dunn, Mort Peeples, Alex Baggett, Drew Duncan, Frank Leonard, Misses Lula and Onnie McClure, of Ramhurst, Pearl and Exie Thompson, Catherine and Jennie Mae Wright, Lillian Glenn, Minnie Rickett, Golda Mae Adams, Ruby Simpson, Esther Shelton, Tenny Cantrell, Berta Roberts, Estelle Wilbanks, Edna Earl Cox, Clara Davis, Pauline Moreland, Martha Holbrooks, Mr. and Mrs. J. L. Parker, Dr. and Mrs. E. H. Dickie, Mrs. B. H. Wilbanks.
Based on other dates in the original clipping, this announcement was probably published about April 1916, which means it was likely published in The Chatsworth Times. The Misses Hemphill are Blanche and Edna, who would have been 18 and 16 at the time; this was not a children’s party.
