140 Years of Tradition
Oliver Perry Poe, one of Denton’s early mayors, opened the doors of one of Denton’s first insurance businesses in the growth and development of a new and promising community.
The insurance agency changed ownership between W. F. Bailey, J. W. Carlisle, Lon A. Speer, and finally to M. L. Ramey in 1920.
When Mr. Speer died in 1923, Mr. Ramey took on Abney B. Ivey as his partner, and Ramey & Ivey was a well-known duo for the next 22 years.
Ramey & Ivey moved to the Smoot-Curtis Building–the only building with an elevator.
M. L. Ramey sold his interest in the firm to his son, Marvin G. Ramey. Marvin also purchased Mr. Ivey’s interest and the business operated as the Ramey Insurance Agency.
Edward A. White became Mr. Ramey’s partner, and shortly after, Ramey & White moved to the First State Bank Building.
September of 1962 marks the date of a substantial growth by the acquisition of another agency in town and the addition of Terrell W. King, III as a third partner.
Marvin Ramey and Terrell King purchased Ed White’s interest and changed the firm to Ramey & King Insurance.
Ramey & King became Ramey, King and Minnis with the addition of Randall L. Minnis, who had worked for the firm for four years prior to that date.
Terrell King and Randy Minnis carried on the 100 year tradition as an independent insurance agency until the addition of Terrell King’s sons, Jeff and James King.
