Humble Telephone Answering Services
Extension 19 Answering Service was founded by Billie (Szabo) Stubblefield in 1974. Billie worked for Pacific Telephone Company in California, Chesapeake & Potomac in Maryland, Southwestern Bell Headquarters in St.
Louis, Missouri; before transferring with Southwestern Bell to Houston, Texas in 1971. Three years later, she purchased a small answering service, beginning with just 7 clients. At that time, the hardware requirements were quite different as every client required a hard line extension to be connected directly to our office, hence our name Extension 19 Answering Service.
