Here are 3 photos that my mom's Aunt Beatrice Thornton
Keeling took circa 1915-1918. I've enclosed mom's email along with her
captions for each (below each respective photo) for you to post onto the
Navarro County Website. Happy Easter and regards, -Russell Smith Forwarded
Message: Dear Russ:- I'm attaching captions for the three school photographs
of students at Hardy's Chapel, 1915-1916, and Harmony Hill, 1917-1918
(students in upper grades) and one of the entire student body. It should be
noted that all of these are by the courtesy of Beatrice Thornton Keeling who
made them available to me. Thank you so much for scanning the pictures and
forwarding them and these captions to Eric Wood. He will see that they get
to the webmaster of the Navarro County website. (Includes the two photos
for the Harmony Hill School)
