Heath Ferrie (1920-2016) Warren High School class of 1939

1939 Dragon yearbook

High school activities:  Not listed.

Also on the page.  Kenneth Foreman owned the "little store*" about a couple of hundred feet from the house where I grew up in Warren PA.  I graduated with his son John.  (Foreman's Market, a corner grocery store that didn't survive the 1960s.  Like most of the rest of them in town.)

1967 Warren City Directory:
  • [county section] Ferrie Anna 1820 Conewango av
1983 Warren City Directory
  • Ferrie Anna S retd h1820 Conewango Ave
  • [county section] Ferrie Heath Bx 23 Russell
  • [county section] Ferrie Myrtle Bx 23 Russell

What a coincidence!  'Myrtle' takes off just as 'Heath' shows up.  (I figured I'd do a daily double as I suspect I'm not likely to see 'Myrtle' again anytime soon.

As for the sudden popularity of 'Heath', we have Lee Majors to thank.

The Big Valley premiered on ABC on September 15, 1965.
