Biographical Note

The Gilleylen, Eley, and Stokes families were united by the marriage of Alvis William Stokes (1908-1986) and Clarice Margaret Eley (1909-1998) on December 7, 1927. The couple settled permanently in Delight, Pike County, Arkansas. Alvis was the son of William R. and Eunice Gilleylen Stokes, while Clarice was the daughter of Henry B. and Stella McCaskill Eley. Clarice was a teacher, who in the early years of their marriage worked in several different schools. For the majority of his life Alvis worked as a famer, raising cattle and poultry. However, his career included notable diversions. During World War II he served in the Pacific theater with the U.S. Navy's 61st Battalion, a “Seabee” construction unit. In 1958 he was elected Pike County’s representative in the Arkansas General Assembly. Then in 1964 he was elected Pike County judge, serving through 1968. Alvis and Clarice had one daughter, Margaret.

Educated in Delight schools, Margaret was involved in numerous activities in high school. Most notably she was a member of the Future Homemakers of America, in which she served as Delight High School president as well as an Arkansas state officer and delegate to the national convention. She married W. Lanny Bateman, the son of Marion and Connie Bowen Bateman. Together Margaret and Lanny had two sons, John and Thomas; they later divorced.

Scope and Content Note

Materials in the collection primarily pertain to Alvis W. and Clarice Stokes as well as their daughter Margaret and her husband Lanny. A large portion of the correspondence was written by Alvis to Clarice and his father during his deployment in World War II. Beyond correspondence, items pertain to Alvis’s service in World War II; his tenure in the General Assembly and as Pike County judge; and the Stokes farm, especially materials related to poultry and cattle. In addition to correspondence, the majority of materials related to Margaret consist of items dating from her time in public schools, especially several textbooks and materials related to extracurricular activities, most notably the Future Homemakers of America. Eley family materials are related primarily to Clarice’s parents. Gilleylen family materials date from the latter nineteenth century.

Beyond materials related to the Gilleylen-Eley-Stokes family, the collection includes items related to Arkansas state organizations, including the Future Homemakers of America, the Parent Teacher Association, and the United Methodist Church. Also included is a large collection of recipes, many written down by hand. In addition, the collection includes materials related to World War II, including civilian ration books and items related to the Seabees and U.S. Navy. Other materials pertain to Delight and Pike County.

Materials include correspondence and other paper documents; scrapbooks; newspapers; photographs; and artifacts. The correspondence includes two phonograph letters sent by Alvis to Clarice and his father during World War II. Photographs include family photos as well as images of Alvis’s wartime deployment overseas. The majority of the scrapbooks belonged to “Mama" Eley, most likely Stella Eley. Newspapers include Pike County and other titles, most notably the Nashville Diamond and Pike County Courier. Artifacts consist of mementoes belonging to different members of the Gilleylen-Eley-Stokes family.

series 3: Scrapbooks, Newspapers, and Artifacts,

1904-1997

Boxes 18-32

Materials in this series consist of three groups: scrapbooks, newspapers, and artifacts. Scrapbooks are divided into three categories. The first category consists of three volumes containing correspondence and photographs dating 1904-1945; originally ring binders with materials in individual plastic sleeves, they have been disassembled with original order preserved by placing paper between the contents of each sleeve. Correspondence includes general family and Alvis W. Stokes wartime letters. The second category consists of eight “Mama Eley” scrapbooks, containing international, national, and local newspaper clippings dating from 1924-1974; “Mama" Eley was most likely Stella Eley. The third category consists of a small fragment of a scrapbook assembled by Margaret Stokes Bateman circa 1958-1962.

Newspapers consist of several Arkansas titles. Dates indicate the first and last years of the title included in the collection; in general dates do not represent entire runs published during the indicated period. Dates that include a single month may designate only one issue of the title.

Artifacts include various keepsakes collected by Gilleylen-Eley-Stokes family members.

Materials are arranged with scrapbooks first, followed by newspapers, and then artifacts. The ring binder scrapbooks are arranged in three volumes, while the “Mama Eley” scrapbooks are arranged in eight volumes by date.
