Jewell School
McDowell Co WV

This is a picture of what we called the big room class at Jewell School, John L Hunter is the teacher in this picture. Mr Hunter taught at various schools in McDowell Co. An interesting fact is he taught all 11 children in the Harrison and Annie Underwood Woody family, but at different locations. He taught the first four at Premier School, then the next four at Mtn. Fork School in the Big Creek district, and the last three at Jewell School, in the Sandy River District. This picture was made in 1949 or 1950. I remember each and every name here...after all these years. I was a student too, but I was the one taking the picture.
