The first doctor to arrive in Eliasville was Dr. Wm. Giles Parrott and his wife, Mary (Stover) Parrott. They came from England originally and then to North Carolina. The Parrott family then joined the westward migration, first to Tennessee and then to Montague County, Texas and then finally to Eliasville by 1880. The move was to aid his wife’s asthma. The couple had four boys, which included Richard L. ‘Dick’ Parrott, who became the wagon boss for the Childress-Parrott Cow Outfit for several years. He made the last cattle drive before all the fencing went up to separate each rancher’s land.
Fashion is important for teens all over the world. Of course, fashions change or sometimes morph into something totally unexpected, but to be “old fashioned” is a curse … especially if you between twelve and seventeen. It has always been important to be in style, but over the past forty years or so, it has become a social necessity … growing up in America.
