Reed School Class Picture, Submitted by Adrian Smothers
It is a school picture and my Dad, Neal Smothers is in the top row, third from the left. Writing on the picture is very vague but I have spent a lot of time looking at it. Here is what I think is on it:

REED SCHOOL
NOVEMBER 29, 1926.

[the date also looks like it could be 1906 but the kid in the picture sure looks like my Dad!]

C.U. CONNOR, TEACHER
[Last line unreadable]

My Father was born on August 3, 1911 in West Frankfort, IL
I know that my Grandfather owned a Saw Mill and a farm in that county around West Frankfort. His name was Spencer Smothers.
