Centerpoint School – circa 1905

Centerpoint group[1]
I am trying to identify the people in this picture of Centerpoint School in southern Montgomery County, Alabama. It was near Elmdale, the Moore-Wingard farm. I understand that at various times some of the teachers lived with the Wingards. If anyone can supply additional information about the history of Centerpoint school and these students, please contact me. If someone has an exact date for the picture, I would appreciate that, too, and the year the school was torn down.

Back row (left to right): Molly Lee Curry, Sophronia Brooks, Julia Lawson Brooks (later married Charlie Jackson), and William Jackson and Lula Missildine (Murray Norman’s grandparents)

2nd row: Ethel Jackson (in front of her is her brother, Edgar Jackson), Coleman Wingard, Charlie Jackson, Tom Wingard (my grandfather), Sam Wingard, and the teacher (does anyone know his name?)

3rd row: Dorsey Menefee Wingard (son of Clyde Wingard), unknown, unknown, Magnolia Wingard, Mary Lou Wingard, and Mittie Mae Wingard

4th row: unknown, unknown, Edgar Wright
