This web page presents a scrapbook created by Imogene Oakley. The scrapbook contains birth announcements, wedding announcements, obituaries, photographs, and various miscellaneous items that interested Imogene. Most items concern people she knew. Items pasted in cover two time periods — 1931-1935 and 1939-1941. Also, the items are not really in chronological order but seem to have been pasted in at a later date. The scrapbook now belongs to Brenda Kirk Fiddler.

After a long marriage to [James] Paul Essary, which was dissolved by divorce in1953; she married Dr. W. D. Poston of Brownsville on October 9, 1955. Dr. Poston died April 29, 196l."

The 1931-1935 period covered by this scrapbook predates Imogene's marriage to James Paul Essary.
