1. My great-great-grandmother, Ada Byron Vaughan, from Demopolis, was a student at the school under Christopher J. D. Pryor ca 1850. Thank you for this information.

  2. Thank you for posting. John Erwin was my great grandfather and my grandmother, Margaret Adams Erwin Inge, attended the school. She was so proud to have had the chance.

  3. Thanks for mentioning “Diddie, Dumps, and Tot,” it was my favorite child book. I can’t tell you how many times I mentioned those stories when I was teaching Am, history many years ago. The copy that you showed is like the one I purchased in New Orleans back in the 60s after it was reprinted by Pelican Press in New Orleans.
