Moxley Schoolhouse c1922

Moxley Schoolhouse was located in northeastern Itawamba County, and although I don't know much about the school, I believe that it was started by Henry T. Moxley, my husband's GGGgrandfather, in the late 1800s. If there is anyone that has more information about the schoolhouse or the Moxley family, I would be interested in hearing from them. Henry T. Moxley was born in 1845 in what was then Fayette County, Alabama. The 1850 census indicates that Henry's father, Austin S. Moxley, was a schoolteacher.

I appreciate Ricky Beasley sharing the above photo with Don Dulaney.

I love the clothes and hats in this pic. It is my belief after my visit with the 90-100 year old Moxleys, that one of the Adults is H.T. Moxley. As you know I have no proof at this time. I love this Photo and I hope you have people come forward that can help.

Thanks, Ricky. Hopefully we can have more identifications. I'm also hoping a photo of the actual Moxley schoolhouse will surface somewhere.
