Sobol High School - 1919
submitted by: John W Ragsdale

 Note from submitter:

From left, sixth person, girl in dark dress, is Iva Spears (Ragsdale). From her, seventh person is Eva Spears (Land).

 Everett and Opal Spears (Crouch) would have been in this picture also; but I can't id them. Opal may be the girl on the edge of the damaged area.

The Spears family was related to the Lawless and Aylor Families who lived in Sobol also.

Miss Lillie Belle Gilbert

Note from submitter Bernita Young:

On the back of this picture was written:
Elvin's schoolteacher, Miss Lillie Belle Gilbert. No date was given, nor a school.

Elvin Fleming attended school in the Rattan area; however, it is unknown which school. He was still in school in 1910 at the age of 9 but had quit before 1920.

Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Miss Lillie Belle Gilbert was one of the teachers that boarded with them. The Fleming family liked Miss Gilbert so much that they named their youngest son, Morris Gilbert Fleming, who was born in March of 1918, after Miss Gilbert.

Lilly Belle Gilbert's son said that his mother taught school in Belzoni for either one or two years. She moved to El Paso, TX in 1918 immediately after teaching at Belzoni,

Note from submitter  
These photos I believe to be Finley school photos from the 1930's. Alvin Stafford
( adopted later - Mitchell) was my father. Clara and Anne Stafford are great aunts.

When I looked at the Pushmataha web site I found the Millers were teachers.
Do you know who Mrs Helen was?
When were the photos taken?
