Cooper School, Benton County, TN - about 1912

In a note accompanying this image, Charles A. “Chuck” Higdon writes, “I have attached some photos I received from a cousin I have met on through their DNA matching program.  Ronnie Smothers said we could add these to the Higdon website, as there are some Higdons in them.  Benton and Carroll counties Tennessee are next to each other just east of Chattanooga, TN.  I have not placed any of the students yet, but if I do I will advise.  Someone may recognize them.”
