Sharron YorkHere are the comments from another of the same post: ....Quite a change from what a prisoner has to deal with today huh? No air conditioning or activities. Wonder who the lady and child are on the porch. .....Oh two kids! .....i wonder if that is some of guy russell's kids...maybe someone else might know... MY COMMENTS: Gwen Hill Watkins, it is Guy & Nellie Russell's grandkids .. This my oldest two sons...Chris & Chad Dotson. Daddy called them his 'Whiteheads'. I think it's Mom with them. Don't know if you remember, but Dad first went into law enforcement as jailer under Freeman. They lived in the 3 bedrm apartment in back. So it was not uncommon seeing us coming or going. Kent was born when they lived there. No surprise he went into law enforcement too. And poor Doris was in highschool...dates (Mike McNabb) had to pick her up there. Mom cooked for the prisoners (& everyone else). When they were having court, it wasn't uncommon for everyone to come over eat..lawyers, judges & DA. She was a very good cook! The prisoners got mad at Dad once & turned on all the water upstairs, causing it flood & run downstairs. Don't remember what Freeman told him to do, but as usual, Mom took matters into her on hands...turned off the water upstairs & tromped up the steps with pepper spray...Buddy Watkins yelled "don't come up here Ms.Nellie..I ain't got no pants on". She yelled back 'well you better get 'em on, because I'm coming'. She sprayed them..they got so mad at her & drew a big picture of her on the wall, with 'Gas Woman' under it! Lots of 'fun' times..ask Doris McNabb!
