Willoughby School later to becomeWhite’s Chapel School
William James Willoughby, pictured above, graduated from the University of Nashville (Peabody) in 1908. He taught school in Clarksville for a year or two before moving to Louisiana. I believe the attached photo was taken at the White or White's Chapel school about 1909 or 1910. The original photo is much sharper than this scanned copy. My grandfather is the man standing behind all of the students. The original photo is mounted on paper and has the names of all the students, although a couple are difficult to read.
A history of the Willoughby School written by Patti Marshall, mentions my grandfather as a teacher. The link to the article is http://www.tngenweb.org/montgomery/hiswhitechapel.html
