Carroll County, Tennessee Sunday School class

I have been scanning more photos found at my grandmother’s house. This photo, she confirms, is a Sunday School class from Mount Nebo Baptist church in Buena Vista, Tennessee. Judging from the cars and clothes, I think it must have been taken in the early 1930s.

My grandmother, who grew up attending Mount Nebo, identifies the man in front as a preacher, “Brother Sledd.” He was easily found on the 1930 census in nearby Hollow Rock, as Clifton C Sledd, clergyman of the Baptist Church, age 33.

She also says the young woman behind him in the wide collar is Lula Mae Kee, and the girl to the right of her is Gertrude Kee.

I just thought it was a neat photo and may be useful to someone. If you can identify other people in the photo, please email me and I will add them to this post.
