If you have a picture of Roscoe Ashley or Jesse Smith,
Please contact Roger@Arrick.com
On Sept 24th, 2007, the archives at the Forney library were moved to the Kaufman library to improve access. During the move, an envelope of pictures fell out and one of the pictures had "Ethel Arrick" written on it. Kathey Hunt noticed this name and contacted us. There appears to be no other pictures of Arricks in the archives. Since Ethel (Pauline) was born in April 1903, this picture was probably taken in 1904. Now, who would have a single picture of an Arrick? Possibly an Alphin family member, or a Nall family member?

Marriage to Roscoe Calvin Ashley
Roscoe (1898-1965) is the son of George Lee Ashley and Sarah Bell Estell. A large Ashley family lived and farmed in the Soda Springs area of Parker County TX.
This marriage occured approximately 1918 but no marriage record has been found.
They were probably married in Parker county.
I don't know why Pauline was in Parker county. Her brother Leonard L. moved west towards Abilene and worked at a brick plant. The area where Roscoe lived also had a large brick plant where he worked, so there might be a connection somehow.
Roscoe is buried in Soda Springs cemetery in Parker County TX. We've heard he was married several times from one source, but heard he never married and cared for his sick mother from another source.

Death 30 Sep 1973 in Houston TX
Pauline died 30 Sep 1973 in Houston TX at the Golden Age Manor.
Her father's name is listed as Junha Arrick - this probably was intended to be Johnny Arrick.
Her health problems were respiratory related, just like her brothers and sister.
Pauline had 2 children by Roscoe Ashley as far as I know.
