STRANGERS IN THE BOX
 
Come, look with me inside this drawer,
In this box I've often seen,
At the pictures, black and white,
Faces proud, still, serene.
I wish I knew the people,
These strangers in the box,
Their names and all their memories
Are lost among my socks.
I wonder what their lives were like,
How did they spend their days?
What about their special times?
I'll never know their ways.
If only someone had taken time
To tell who, what, where, or when,
These faces of my heritage
Would come to life again.
Could this become the fate
Of the pictures we take today?
The faces and the memories
Someday to be passed away?
Make time to save your stories,
Seize the opportunity when it knocks,
Or someday you and yours could be
The strangers in the box.

*ABPMcN = Annie Belle Pierce McNeil Collection

Contributor's note: Several photographs that belonged to my aunt, Annie Belle Pierce McNeill.  Annie Belle was the daughter of  William Albert and Nettie Pierce from Pleasant Hill, MS.  Annie Belle and her husband lived near Hazlehurst for over 60 years (but grew up in Union Church/Pleasant Hill area) so I have no idea if the photos are of family, friends, or what.  I do have names on 4 of them:  Greg Griffin (this appears to be newer than the others--maybe the 1960's), Inez Ray, Maude Etta Ferguson, Greg Caglin, Mc Comb, MS; and
Mildred Pauline Shelton.  The rest of the photos have no identification, and
they are probably from the 1920's and 30's. 

If you know these folks from the Annie Belle Pierce McNeill Collection, please contact the Webmaster or Judy Pierce Valentine
