My Old Hometown

Cathy Hart (age 6) in the 1958 Collinsville Tri-County Fair pet parade with her colt.
Dear Mr. Wright,
I am a former resident of Collinsville and visit your website several times each week to keep tabs on what's going on in my old hometown. My family moved to Collinsville from Tulsa in 1955 when I was 3 years old. My grandparents and parents opened Hart's Fruit and Vegetable Stand on Old Hwy. 169 shortly after our move there. They ran the business together until my grandfather Henry Hart passed away in 1962. My grandmother Bessie Hart continued the business until 1970 when she rented it to a family from Tulsa and retired. She passed away in 1973.

My dad Elzie F. Hart worked for Tulsa Rendering Plant until his death in 1965. I lived in Collinsville until my marriage in 1968 to my husband Richard, shortly after which we moved to south Florida. My mom Melba lived in Collinsville until the mid 90's, when she moved to Skiatook for a short time. In 2001 Mom moved to Florida to live with my husband and I. Mom passed away this past October and is buried in the family plot at Ridgelawn Cemetary.

My Mom's parents, Toney and Ollie Beaver moved to Collinsville from Colorado in 1962 and lived there until Grandpa passed away in 1980 and Grandma followed
four years later. Several aunts, uncles, and cousins have moved to Collinsville over the years and moved away for one reason or another. I still have two aunts and several cousins living there.

My husband and I were through Collinsville a couple weekends ago on our way to Kansas to visit our daughter and her family. That's when I decided to write you and tell you how much I appreciate and enjoy reading your webpage so much. I'm able to stay in touch with what goes on in collinsville thanks to you. I love seeing photos of old classmates at the high school reunions.

I am attaching a copy of an old news clipping my Mom had of the 1958 Tri-County Fair and Parade. Since the fair is coming up soon, I thought you might like to see it.

Thanks for helping me and all the other former Collinville residents who now live so far helps.

Cathy Hart Dunn
