"The fifth child (little boy) in the front row seated is believed to be Everett Avery Carroll. He's my grandfather's half-brother. 
I sent a copy to Avery's daughter in Cleveland, Ohio and she also believes it is her father too."

"Lee Bob Jutice has been non-intentionally cropped out of the photograph. Does Mike have a copy with Lee Bob in it?"

My grandmother, Opal Williams, is in the front row, third from the left (big bow in her hair).

I never knew what school was in my pic until today. I knew she went to school around Aden.
Fortunately, the same male teacher in both pictures.
