Lucy Ann Montgomery1

(13 November 1867 - 17 January 1935)
     Lucy Ann Montgomery was born on November 13, 1867 in Union Parish, Louisiana.2 She was the daughter of William L. Montgomery and Julia Florence Coulter.3
     The origin of her nickname "Exer" is unknown, however, it was used to such an extent that few, if any, of her children knew her true name and it even appears on her tombstone as L. E. evidently for Lucy Exer, instead of L. A. for Lucy Ann. Althought there is no proof or known evidence other than an X on some documents, it is speculated that this name came about as a result of the death of her dad, William L. Montgomery, probably sometime prior to 1880. Since Lucy was a minor at that time, her mother, Julia Florence Coulter Montgomery, had to petition the court to appoint her as guardian of her two minor children, Lucy and William E. Montgomery. It is suspected when it came time for Lucy to sign some documents someone said "X her name" and somehow this became her name, Exer. Some consideration has been given to a possible family relationship with the city of Exeter, England but it seems this would be much less likely.4
     Lucy married James Jethro Slade, son of Joseph H. Slade and Elizabeth M. Dumas, on December 23, 1882 in Louisiana.5
     Lucy Ann Montgomery died on January 17, 1935 in Truxno, Union Parish, Louisiana, at age 67 and was buried in Conway Cemetery, Conway, Union Parish, Louisiana.6

Bill Ernest Slade1

(13 March 1904 - 14 February 1979)
     Bill Ernest Slade was born on March 13, 1904 in Truxno, Union Parish, Louisiana.2 He was the son of James Jethro Slade and Lucy Ann Montgomery.
     Bill married Callie Loucine Atkins, daughter of Henry Clayton Atkins and Gertrude Dell Dawkins, on May 18, 1920 in Laran, Union Parish, Louisiana.3
     Bill was a deacon in the Conway Baptist Church for many years and was instrumental in the project to replace the old wooden church with a new brick building in the late 1950's. Bill worked at many occupations during his lifetime. He started out as a farmer, was a teamster for construction of a pipeline, owned and operated a restaurant in Eldorado, owned and operated a school bus under contract with the state and did odd jobs as a carpenter, plumber and paper hanger. He worked in construction in Arkansas during the war and did some lobbying in Baton Rouge. He got his job driving the school bus by getting involved in politics but he wanted no part of running for office. Also, he was an avid domino player and fisherman.4 Bill died on February 14, 1979 in Monroe, Ouachita Parish, Louisiana, at age 74.2

Alton Lee Slade

(3 March 1892 - 4 February 1980)
     Alton Lee Slade was born on March 3, 1892 in Union Parish, Louisiana.1,2 He was the son of James Jethro Slade and Lucy Ann Montgomery. Alton Lee Slade was registered for the military draft in World War I on June 5, 1917 in Louisiana. He was listed as medium height & build with brown eyes and hair. He was a farmer at Truxno.
     Lee was a Sergeant in World War I and was the ranking man on his section of the line when the war ended, since all his commanders had been killed. He accepted the surrender of the German Commander, a Colonel. Sgt. Slade was not aware that the war was over.3
     Alton married Clara Griffin, daughter of James Monroe Griffin and Mattie A. Torrence, on January 9, 1921. After the war probably around 1926, Lee and his brother, Bryan, became co-owners of the Truxno store when Tom Dawkins, the owner of the store, is believed to have started reducing his estate. In any case, Lee became postmaster on Aug. 30, 1929 so it seems likely they acquired the store before that date. The store was an old facility even at that time. Dawkins family tradition suggests that it was established by Duncan Dekalb Dawkins, an early settler in the Truxno area. However, it appears more likely that the store was established by Wilks Brooks, father-in-law to Duncan Dawkins. Wilks was a merchant in Greenville, NC, moved to Tennessee after 1834 and to the Truxno area about 1845 where he operated a store at what was identified then as Brooks Crossroads. Wilks Brooks' burial is listed as March 9, 1849 and is thought to be in the Shute Cemetery a short distance south of the crossroads.

The store was a two story building with living quarters in the upstairs portion and was occupied by Bryan's family during the 1940's. Sometime probably in the early to mid-1950's the upstairs section was removed because the leaking roof had pretty well ruined the upstairs section and made it unsafe as living quarters. The original intent was to replace the roof and make repairs but it was quickly determined that repairs would be too extensive. Therefore, the store was converted to a one story facility.3 Alton died on February 4, 1980 in Louisiana at age 87.4
