Bedford was located west of Vernon.  Thank you, Marty Harper
 

This is a picture of youths from the Springhill Community, Vail Beat in Southern Lamar Co. Walton Vail appears to be about 16 years old in the picture, that would make the picture taken about 1900-1901.  The Early School for that Community was called CrossRoads School and then Later Springhill School, which this is I don't know. I have named the people that we can identify.  Can anyone name the rest.  Walton Vail (1885-1976) and Ada O. Dawkins (1886-1966) are my grandparents.
