In response to your query about the Heald community. I grew up in that part of Wheeler County. I remember riding the school bus in the late 1940's and frequently the bus driver would stop the bus at the little store at Heald and let us buy a soda water and candy, etc. There was nothing there except the little store and one or two houses and a Methodist Church. I have no idea how it got its name. I do not remember a Heald family in the area.

Hope this helps.

Hello Gene, think I have written to you before, however, I couldnt pass this up!

The General Store there in Heald was owned by TF Phillips (Thomas Franklin Phillips) my great grandfather. He also had a large building built beside it at one time to house water well drilling equipment.

Early in the years, there was also a school across the street (cady corner to the church) that my father and his brothers attended.

Just wanted to add... :)
