Flat Rock Academy, Clayton County, Georgia, 1891.  Teacher, John David Humphries, assistant teacher, Dora Humphries, in doorway.
The Flat Rock School began in Flat Rock Baptist Church, near Riverdale Road, two miles South of the City of Manchester, now College Park.  At this time, this school had 28 "patrons" who agreed to sponsor the equivalent of 34 pupils, primarily from Clayton County.  John D. Humphries had to call on the patrons personally to collect these "accounts."  A portion of the financial support came from the Clayton County and Campbell County School Funds because some of the students came from Campbell County.  Teacher Humphries traveled by train to Manchester to collect this "voucher" account.


Howard Academy was a school once attended by the Humphries children, John, Joe, and Dora.  In 1891, when this photo was made, Joseph Humphries was teaching (standing at rear) and Lillie Jones (fourth row from bottom, second from left), who was later to marry John D. Humphries, and her sisters, Laura (second row from bottom, third from left) , and Emma (third row, sixth from left), were pupils. Nellie Bernice Jones was 10 years younger than Laura and attended later.

Another school taught by Joseph Humphries.  The Jones sisters are not in this photo.
