This is a photograph that my grandmother, Hazel (Sergent) Fouss, had. In it are her 3 older siblings: Icy Sergent (standing in the 2nd row 2nd from the left), Opal Sergent (seated in the front row 3rd from the left) and Eskey Sergent (seated in the middle of the front row). Opal was born in Jan of 1910 so I'm guessing this is about 1913. If anyone recognizes any of the other children or can tell me WHICH SCHOOL this was taken at, I would be greatly appreciative. Thank you.

This is a photo that my grandmother had. She is the small girl standing in the 2nd row about at the center of the group. Her name was Hazel Sergent and she was born in Walton in November 1914, so I'm guessing this photo is about 1919.  Her brother Eskey is sitting in the front row 5th from the right and her sister Opal is also sitting in the front row 3rd from the right.
If anyone recognizes the other children or adults or could tell me WHICH SCHOOL this may have been taken at, I would greatly appreciate it.

The Amma School, a two room school with kitchen, is now the Amma Senior Citizens building. I attended this school from 1937 to 1943. Changes noted recently were air conditioners, a ramp for the handicapped, and a well house has been built which now has an electric pump. My teachers were Maxine (Carper) Byrd, Lena Cobb, Madge (Looney) Crane, Orva (Engle) Malm, and Dewey Ashley. The bathrooms were about thirty yards to the east of this building, one for the boys and one for the girls.  There are plans to tear down this building and construct a new one for the Senior Citizens Activities when adequate funds are available. Most all of the one room and two room schools in Roane County have now been torn down. My mother, Ruby (Looney) Nida, taught at many of them including Amma, Newton, Pine Grove, Sunny Hill, Big Pigeon, Beech Hill, Roadside and probably others that I have forgotten.
