Reminiscences of a Texas Pioneer
By Nancy Triplett Humphrey
of Wichita Falls, TX
As I have been requested to tell some of my experiences of my pioneer days, I will give a few that are still vivid in my mind.My Husband T. B. Humphrey,and I were born and reared in Kentucky.We were school-mates.Both of us went to school at Burkesville College in the early seventies.When I was twenty-one and Mr. Humphrey twenty-six, we married.Shortly after that we sold our home in Kentucky and boarded the train for Texas.In December, 1883, we arrived in Wichita Falls.Wichita Falls was the terminus of the railroad at that time.We were bound for Olde Mobeetie in Wheeler County, which was about as far West as we could go.We stayed in Wichita Falls several days, looking for transport ion to Mobeetie.Mobeetie was a little frontier town located about one mile from Fort Elliot where soldiers were stationed to Keep down the Indians.
After waiting a few days in Wichita Falls, my husband found some freighters who were hauling corn to the Rocking-Chair Ranch in Collingsworth.He made arrangements with them for us to go as far as the Rocking-Chair Ranch with them.That ranch was not many miles from Mobeetie.
It was December, cold and rainy.It took us two weeks to make the trip.The freighters were heavily loaded, their wagons carring trailers, and they had to stop often and let the roads dry before the could proceed.I remember the freighters had a large box fixed on the end of one wagon which the called the "chuck Box."It carried their groceries, which consisted of bacon, coffee, flour and onions and a tall can filled with sourdough.That was something new to me.I had never heard of Sourdough.I asked them why the wanted sourdough.They told me the made biscuits with it.I told them to let me make the biscuits.The readily consented as they were like most other men in that they didn't like to make biscuits.I learned then to make sourdough biscuits, cooking them on a dutch oven.We would make a big camp fire and heat the oven and lid.I rolled the biscuits in grease, put them in the oven, and they surely were good.I have made sourdough biscuits many time since, but I learned to make them from the freighters the cold December in 1883.
We arrived safely in Mobeetie and stayed there for some time.Then we moved out on the Washita in Hemphill County where we took up a claim.It was there that my husband taught the first public school in Hemphill County and organized the first Sunday School in that section of the state.
Our first house was a dugout.Well I do remember cold nights in that little shelter.My husband had been to Mobeetie.He returned about nightfall bringing a stranger with him.It was a December night with a blizzard blowing.The stranger was Parson Alexander, the father of Dr. Snyder's wife.When I saw him, I thought "what will I do with the preacher?"But there is always room for one more.We son became acquainted, and I found Mr. Alexander so congenial and friendly i was glad he came.After supper we sat around the fire and talked until bedtime, then we had prayer led by the preacher.I have always remembered his prayer.He said, "Though we have storms without, lit us have peace within."Those words have stayed in my memory and have helped me.If we can only have peace, peace that passes understanding, how much better things will be for us.
I am now 83 years old and not so active as I once was, but I can still wait on myself and bake good light-bread I could make sourdough, too if it were necessary.A year ago, my son Leslie said "Mother, you have ridden on everything from an ox-cart up to an airplane.If you are not afraid, I will put you on an airship and give you a ride by air."I said, "come on."I had the airplane ride and enjoyed it.
I still go to the polls and vote and if I am spared I intend to poll my vote for Roosevelt this coming November.
