BATES ARKANSAS SINGING SCHOOL, ca1920-21
The young lady with the darker skirt (third from the right, third row down from the top) is the one that I have concluded is my mother, Ovie Meeks Sherrill. She was born 24 August 1905 in Weeks, Arkansas and died 18 April 1984 in Wharton Co., TX. If this is her, the photo will be circa 1920-21. The young lady is wearing a ring on her left hand that I assume is a wedding ring. My Mother married 12-24-1920 at the age of 15 and 4 months. And Hartzell Harvey Blair may be one of the young boys. I do not know any of the people in the picture otherwise. If anyone can identify any of these people, please contact Hartzell Sherrill.
