I am sending you the picture of the one room school at Sloantown in Scott county. This is a great picture of many children who lived along the Clinch River that attended school at Sloantown. They had to cross the river in a boat to get to school. Amanda Williams Qualls sent me a copy of this picture. She is in the picture and is still living in Scott county. She gave me the names of the children in the pictures. I love the bare feet and the knickers.
