Note

In the days of early statehood a law was passed that required there be a school every 3 miles (within walking distance for all). This was the day of horse and buggy. You couldn't get in your car and drive 10 miles to school in a few minutes. This is what created so many of the small one room school houses of Garvin County. Early W .P. A. projects replaced most of the one-room school houses with nicer rock or brick buildings, most of which were later turned into community meeting houses or churches after being annexed.

Brady school - Was organized Dec 24, 1907 with classed beginning Jan 11, 1908 and was located 7 miles west of Wynnewood. The first school board members were S.W. Adams, G. S. Brady (Clerk) and R. P. Baker. Brady had an enrollment of 171 students. The Brady School disbanded in 1930 and was annexed on Dec 15, 1949 as District 26 to Wynnewood. Vennettea Pope was the teacher at Brady in 1925. Some of her class was Leslie Anthony, Haskell Blackburn, Eual Buckner, Theodore Fox, Raymond Fox, Cecil Ruppe, Loyd Shirley, Bessie Nelson, Leslie Bucker, Reubin Cash, Harvey Long, Harley Nelson, L J. Pearson, Oland Warren, Truman Warren, Eugene Watson, Arnold Watson, Eula Buckner, Pearl Buckner, Sallie Killmer, Minnie Knight, Jannie Knight, Lillie Thompson, Ruby M. Warren, Ruby Warren, Nadine Watson, Eula Cash, Ora Pyle, Marie Ruppe, Eunice Sparks, Loydale Ashby, Fay Brassfield, and Ruby Noland.

Note

A couple of memories of my grandpa:

One was that he loved the Rubiks cube...he would sit for hours playing with that...He would always try and show us grandkids, and I remember my grandma would yell "Dad, the kids don't care about that, just let them go play"..

I also remember he was always so proud of his vegetable garden, especially his home grown tomatoes...They were always a staple on the dinner table...and they were always so good...

by Lisa Ann Ruppe (Cecil's granddaughter)

Things I learned about my grandpa from my grandma on May 25, 2011...

Grandpa lived with his uncle Nick Wolf (his mom Mary Etta's sisters husband) when he was in high school. (I guess that is why he graduated from Ada High School. As his sister Clota was going to school in Wynnewood. But when he lived with Uncle Nick, he worked on there dairy farm and would drive the truck and deliver milk.

Mr Ruppe (grandpa's dad Charles) had a lot of Pecan trees...he also grew a lot of other things. He was also proud of his grapes he grew. In the pic of Charles Ruppe, he is holding real grapes from his farm.

There was a neighbor to the Ruppe farm that didn't really have much, he came over once and was stealing Pecans out of the tree in the middle of the night. He was outside shaking the branches so the pecans would fall. Mr Ruppe and grandpa went out there after grandma said she heard a noise outside and told him to leave and never come back. The neighbor was stealing the pecans so he could sell them in town for some money.
