This picture was in the possession of
James Mitchell Taylor of Rye Cove,
"Many readers of the Herald-Virginian have requested that a list of the names of those pictured in the Greenwood Normal School group last week be printed in this week's paper.
Identification of the faces in the old picture, made in 1890, was made by Prof. I. C. Coley in 1940 -- fifty years after the picture was made-but even so, I am sure he correctly identified them. Mr. Coley had a remarkable, an almost marvelous memory.
The names are as follows:
From left to righ beginning at the bottom of the picture. J. C. Rogers, J. M. Dougherty, S. H. Bond, James Casteel, R. E. Quillin, A. L. Godsey, John Minnich, G. L, Dougherty, H. L. Rollins, John Neal, G. B. Compton, Peter Marcum, Mark Horton, J. M. Taylor, W. J. Rollins, Mollie Lawson. Della White. Markey Wolfe, R. C. Coley, W. F. Ramey, J. W. Repass, George W.

This is the Col. Alexander M. Gray home which
sat on top of Buckner's ridge just across the road from Hagan Hall.
This photo was taken just after a fire had burnt the front porch off in the
1880's. The old couple pictured are Stephen Jett Nickels and Lucy Gray
Nickels (she was a daughter of Alexander Gray)
