Picture

That picture has several of the Hale family members in it. In your book, there is a misprint of one of the flower girl's names. It is my mother. Her name was Marjorie Hale (Hillhouse). In your book I believe you had it as Margaret.

Bluff Park annexations

I have lived in Bluff Park since 1966. Lately The annexation date of 1985 has been used for Bluff Park. That is incorrect. Annexations were done by petition and our subdivision was annexed in 1978. Other areas came in slowly at later dates as residents applied to come into the city. Actually Rocky Ridge was one of the last older areas annexed. So many long time residents have noted this error and commented on it. Perhaps more research might be appropriate. There are a number of long time residents who would be an excellent resource.

Linda,

Annexation was a long process in the late 70s as you have noted in your comment, and by 85 all "parts" of Bluff Park had been annexed. 85 is the city's "official" date so to speak when it was all Hoover. Here are two articles. You will like. https://www.facebook.com/Bluffparkal.org/photos/a.158638137482307.36805.126356464043808/1452852918060816/?type=3&theater
