LOVINGTON SCHOOL CHILDREN
Year Unknown

lovington school

The only information I have on this photo is a note written on the cardboard backing of this photograph by Sue Prudence Weeks (daughter of Jesse Lee Weeks and and Sallie Ann Wyatt, sister of Rush Borbin Weeks, who married Zona Adkins.
Her note reads:
Betty Weeks (Will's dau.) first row - light dress, dark tie and belt;
Jack Weeks - 2nd from left;
Bob Weeks - 6th from left, 2nd row.
Betty, Jack and Bob Weeks were the children of Ina Adkins and William Bailey Weeks, sister and brother of Zona and Rush. Ina and Will had six children who were raised by Ina's mother after Ina died in 1916 and Will in 1923. These children were very close to the four children of Rush Corbin Weeks and often spent time together.

Can anyone else identify any of the other children?

W.S. ADKINS


Stanton Adkins in his uniform - have no idea whether it's his Union Army uniform or a militia outfit.
Can anyone help out on this?
