    I moved here in January 1983 when I married Lonnie Harold Brinkley, who bought the house because at that time, it had 5 bedrooms. He was rearing his four daughters off and on as a single parent. Today is May, 21, 2013 and I have continued to live here. My husband is deceased. One notable thing about this property is the driveway. It was designed evidently for a 40 Ford and many thing they can maneuver the driveway safely, especially men; however, the driveway shows many how wrong they are. Harriette Brinkley
