2TerryParty,  

 James Rhea and I can identify only a few of these children, and the photo is puzzling because so many of the children are younger than Terry and we don't remember that many youngsters living nearby.  However, we are sure that the boy standing and holding two children, is Floyd Jones.  The little boy he is holding in his right arm must be his little brother, Philip Dutton.  They lived right next door to the Loves.  That is Connie Grambling sitting next to Terry and we think the child farthest to the left as you view the photo may be Greg Grambling.  There is another "older" fella in the photo, but that is not James Rhea.  James Rhea is l0 years older than Terry.  I'll try to pass this photo along to Terry and see what he can remember. Terry was the handsomest little boy, wasn't he.  He was and still is one of my favorite people.  The little boy being held may be Janie Herron's brother, Tim I believe.

My best guess is from the left - Greg, Terry Terrell ( they lived two houses toward Sibley at one time), Janie Herron, Connie, me, Paul Morgan.  Second row from the left - I don't know the baby, I think the boy behind Connie is Dan Wiggly (the youngest Wiggly boy - Dan doesn't sound right), Philip Dutton, Floyd Jones, Keitha Morgan.

20. This is Nolan Bailey   Class of 1957, taken when he was in the 1st grade around 1945/46.

 

21. Nolan Bailey is the cute little fellow on the left;

Sherry Posey is the beautiful blonde on the right...she grew up to be

Miss Bienville Parish and Miss Holiday In Dixie. She was five or six years old

in this picture. Sherry and I are cousins and this was taken at our grandparents

house.  Her mother (a Bailey) and my dad were first cousins.

  The one in the middle is my little cousin, who was around ten days older than me, Joyce Malone, a first cousin, recently deceased.



 This was taken from my memories of Miss Rathbun...

Here come my question's.  I remember that my first teacher was a "Miss Rathbun," who I think  had red hair. Heck, its been sixty years, so what do I know (remember).  Does anyone there know more about this teacher, and does anyone remember being in the first grade during 1945, at her school? 

I still have doubts that anyone remembers me as a first grader...must have been another little guy that was smart... ;-)

Someone said that they had a photo of the 1945 class, wish they could find it.  That way I might not think that I'm completely "crazy."  :-)

Here "they" is:

Somewhere I have a picture of the whole class. I will try to remember where it is and get it posted.  My name was Barbara Baten at that time.  I married Max Rudd another Minden graduate.
