King Anniversary Parade

Doris & Leon King eloped to Lawton OK., on November 11, 1950 and were married at 5:30pm. They have lived all over the United States but settled in Doris' childhood home in Jacksboro in 1987. They have been blessed with three daughters, two grandsons and six great grandchildren, the eldest great grandson serving in the Navy. Doris and Leon have been members of the First Baptist Church since settling in Jacksboro. On Wednesday, November 11th, the First Baptist Church organized a reverse parade to congratulate the Kings for their 70th Anniversary. The Kings sat on their porch as everyone drove by honking their horns, blowing bubbles and leaving signs in celebration.
