1937 Cowboys and Indians Baseball Teams. Middlebourne. 1937
Contributed by: Rhonda Sellers Baro
Donny and Joyce Jemison ( of New Martinsville, formerly of Middlebourne) saved a number of photos and clippings that ran in the Tyler Star News during the summer of 1937. They describe events surrounding the Cowboys and Indians baseball teams that were organized by Gordon Jemison, Donny’s father. The teams were comprised of Middlebourne boys about the age of 12. My dad, Bob Sellers, was a Cowboy. We have tried our best to identify the people in the pictures.
If you would like to contact Rhonda for more info on the clippings or to identify any of the boys, her email is:
