Sevier County Photos


If you have any old photos of Sevier County please contact me. Send your email to jmfelihkatubbe@yahoo.com. PLEASE put Sevier County in your subject line so I do not overlook it.


Avon School about 1917 The only people I know are in the front row far right is Robert Clarence Stell and the third person to the left (in white dress)is Randi Stell his sister. They are the children of James Arthur and Minnie (Stephens) Stell. Randi would later marry Richard Munn and Clarence would marry Nixie (Babe) Brown and later Bennie Hunt. I base the date of 1917 on Randi's birth which was in 1907 and she appears to be about 10 years old, and Clarence was born in 1910 and he appears to be about 7 years old. My mother-in-law Goldie (Stephens) Wilson, 92, who attended school there confirmed that it is the Avon school building.This photo was provided by Anthony Stell, son of Clarence Stell and Nixie Hunt and was submitted by Larry Parks
