Kentucky Color: Identification complete for Antioch School Photo

By Billy Joe Fudge

I've had a little problem following Momma's positioning but here goes. I believe I have it right:
From left: kneeling: G. W. Stotts, Ruble Corbin, Ernest Ray Thompson, James Thompson and Kenneth Wheeler. Left to right by position: Bobby Joe Keen, Jessie Corbin, Donald Campbell, Magaline Wheeler, Barbara England, Leola Hodges, Frank Baker, Wilda Corbin, Dimple Gadberry, Zelma Stotts, Bobby Janes, Joann Gilpin, Polly Wheeler, Junior Dooley, Catherine Corbin, Francis Hodges, Regina Corbin, Bruce Janes, Delbert Corbin, Lucy Gilpin, Davis Campbell and the teacher, Marie Holliday.
Momma is 84 and remembers more about her classmates at this age than I do about mine at age 9 or 10. She probably remembers more about my classmates than I remember.

She has an amazing mind for names and dates of births, events and deaths. Bottom line I think, is that she cares to remember more than most of us today.

All they had was each other, and I think maybe our focus today is much too broad with too little attention to our friends, neighbors, families and the events of which living is composed.
