Article Image Alt Text

Beth Magee, the daughter of William Baker “Bill” Lunday, a World War I veteran, and Zaidee Mason Lunday, was born in Pelican, Louisiana on June 29, 1922. She was a descendant of a pioneer DeSoto Parish family. Her grandparents Dr. William H. and Anna Hart Mason settled in the Grove Hill community and later moved into Pelican in the late 1800s, after the construction of the railroad. One of Beth’s most vivid memories involved the Louisiana maneuvers in 1941. Hundreds of young soldiers arrived by train in Pelican and shopped at the local stores, much to the delight of the young ladies of the town. Beth often told of meeting Dwight Eisenhower and George Patton at the store run by her father and mother (formerly Dr. Mason’s office). Beth graduated from Pelican High School in 1939. She married James Franklin Magee, a World War II veteran, in 1942. After living in Texas for several years, Beth and Franklin moved back to Pelican with their young daughter Jan in 1960.
