Does anyone recall a Bluffview Dairy, or perhaps a veterinarian by the last name of Lively? I'm researching the surname Lively and have only brief clues into this one.
Thanks,
Susan

Jim,
Thanks for the insight into the dairy and it's owners. Any idea who Henry Lively would have been? His widow, Laura, was mentioned in your info. Can I assume that Jack Lively was the father and John T. Lively was the son?
I know I'm picking your brain, but thanks.

There sure was a Bluffview Dairy in the 1950's! The milkman came to my home over in Lakewood about twice a week. The glass returnable bottles had a Bluffview logo on them.

Hi, Susan...
Just a guess, but I'd say Henry & Laura were the
parents of Jack and John T.
It appears that Jack was born in 1901 and died in Dallas
County in 1985.

Susan, I don't know if you're from Dallas but the whole neighborhood "above" the bluff is called Bluffview. It's a large cliffside off Northwest Highway, south/west of NW @ Midway. More appropriately, the actual dairy farm was the lower part, "viewing the bluff" rather than the view "from the bluff". Bluffview was a very popular dairy in Dallas; while it continued, the original property was developed residentially.
The most intuitive "recent" Lively in East Dallas was Della Lively, who had a flourishing real estate firm. I bet she could tell you more about the family, which seems to have been around awhile.

Does anyone out there still have one of those old milk bottles? What did the logo look like?
Very interesting,
Thanks... Susan

You might also want to review back issues of the Dallas Morning News and Dallas Times Herald to find ads for the dairy. Old City directories may or may not have ads for the dairy that would show its logo.

I'm a little confused here. Is it possible to have duplicate user names on this forum? I'm not the same Susan that started this thread, and the email address is different from mine.

Are you the Susan that used to live on Palace Way near Lochwood? I want to try and keep you two straight (in my mind, that is).

Yes. That's me. I checked the archieves and the 1st Susan hasn't posted in 7 years. My 1st post was 3 yrs ago.

Good, Susan. I guess I could've done that.

My grandparents lived in Denton when I was growing up, and we would drive out there a couple times a month. I-35 was pretty empty back then. Lewisville was the only town between Carrollton and Denton and otherwise it was country. I could swear there was a Bluffview Dairy farm on I-35 back in those days (60s and 70s). It had a big lit sign.

How funny that the Liveleys of dairy fame lived on Guernsey! There was a lively Lakewood realtor for many years, Della Lively.
Mark Ritchie, I recall that large dairy sign along I35 near Sandy Lake, maybe, for Oak Farms. It may have had Bluffview on it (itz as flat a piece of bottom as ever existed).
The 'bluff view' was of course the view from Joe's and Bachman Creek toward the high bluff many of us wish we'd bought some investment lots in waaay back lol.

I did at least a couple of "industrial tours" from Kindergarten and grade school to the processing plant over near Harry Hines, and to the farm out in Carrolton (pink doors on the stalls at the time we went - that made an impression). Wish I had pictures.

I am the grandson of Jack and Marguerite Lively and the great-grandson of John T. Lively (his first wife was Sephronia Cox, second wife Rose). The addresses on Guernsey Ln. are correct. First dairy at Midway and Northwest, second at Denton Drive and roughly Royal and the last in Carrollton. Sold to Southland in the mid sixties. John T. Lively was the son of Patrick Henry Lively who settled in Dallas in the 1850's. Great to stumble upon this conversation.

Welcome to the forum and thanks for the input.

Was the orignal dairy site entirely on the south side of Northwest Highway?

There are a couple of websites re the Bluff View Addition on the south side of Northwest Hoghway that claim that was originally the dairy site.

A while back, Debby Lacy shared a paper she wrote about the Lively and Cochran families and the Bluff View Dairy... it can be accessed at:

The Lively Family: [tinyurl.com]

I just tried the link and it still works. It's a google doc.


I pretty much only remember the place (The Denton Dr. and Carrolton locations) from field trips in kindergarten and grade school.
