I'm just loving it...

As I read the genealogy blogs I follow, I glance over to the links to other blogs.

Inevitably, I find one or more that sound interesting, and I right click and open in a new tab.

And wind up adding them to my reading list and my own list of links.

How the (very enjoyable) time flies...

Mt Vernon School was in Pope Co., AR.

The text accompanying the photograph starts with identifications in the back row of the photo.


PhotobucketAt left is the teacher, Floy Beason. Others include: Front, from left - Arkie Burris, Ethel Wright, Gertha Wright, Alvis Coffman, Winford Coffman, Manuel Freeman, Melissa Coffman, Eula Wright and William J Coffman; second row - Edna Burris, Etta Coffman, Victoria Coffman, Nona Wright, Myrta Wright, and Laura Huffman; front - Hester Jobe, Iva Freeman, Minnie Coffman, Mabell Coffman, and Laura Coffman; bottom - Burris boy, Neadan Burris, Edgar Wright, Bill Jobe, Mike Jobe, Marvin Coffman, Fred Burris and Paul Burris.

From the surnames listed, it looks like this was a very small school and very much a "neighborhood" school.
