Ethel Ann Hopson was my great-grandmother on my father’s side. She is my grandmother’s mother.
She was born on January 11, 1903 – most likely in Montague, Texas. I say that because this is where she lived during the 1910 federal census.
Sometime between 1910 and 1920, she moved to what today is known as Waurika, Oklahoma. Back then it was known as Grayson (Jefferson County), Oklahoma.
Two years later she would marry Benjamin Franklin Price on October 18, 1922. US Census records show us back then he was a farmer. That was just before the great depression.
They didn’t have children right away. They wouldn’t have their first child until 1925, 3 years after their marriage. Back then this was rather unusual. Most people back then married young and started popping out babies left and right.
In all, they had 5 children, only 4 of which would grow into adulthood. Their youngest child, Gloria Sue would die by the time she was 2.
- Ben Donald Price (1925-2004)
- Glen Edward Price (1927-1982)
- Kenneth Price (1929-2012)
- Alice Joann Price (1935-)
- Gloria Sue Price (1943-1945)
Ethel Ann Hopson and her husband lived in Waurika almost their entire lives – at the end, however, she would be moved to an assisted living facility in Oklahoma City, OK which is where she would die on June 15, 1990.
Here is a picture of me, with my sisters Melody and April on their porch as young children in Waurika.
