Fikes and Vinson – Historical Question and Answer Session

Willie Fikes and Nelson Vinson 04-25-2017 (1024x768)

 

Today, April 25, 2017, a great Historical Brown Bag lunch at Bevill State Community College in Hamilton, Alabama second in a series sponsored by Bevill State and Marion County Historical Society.

Dr. Beth Gibbs welcomed guests to the lunch. Bob Moore introduced local historians, Mr. Nelson Vinson and Mrs. Willie Fikes.

Mr. Vinson, who came to Marion County in 1949 is known as a “land line” authority ( property ownership legal boundaries) of the county. Mrs. Fikes has a vast knowledge of Hamilton and local area history, and its people. She and Mr. Vinson, know locations of many of the early buildings in Hamilton, that I only wonder about. Attendees were allowed to ask questions with Mrs. Fikes and Mr. Vinson responding.

If you love Marion County Alabama History, you should have been there.

Third luncheon in this series will be May 29th 12 Noon at Bevill. Randy Brown will be guest speaker, topic Andrew Jackson Military Road.
