Flint Ridge School 1929-30. Photo contributed by Lois McPherson. The photo shows the class of her mother, Sarah Johnson McPherson, at Flint Ridge School (off of Liberty-Silk Hope Rd.). Sarah Johnson McPherson didn’t see this picture until she was 95 years old, when she received the photo for her birthday. Mrs. McPherson wrote down the names of every person in the picture.
Sarah Johnson is in the back row, 4th person from the right. She attended Flint Ridge school until she went into 7th grade at Silk Hope School, where she graduated in 1936. Sarah (1917-2015) was the daughter of W. E. and Elizabeth Ward Johnson. Also in her class picture are her younger brothers Leon and Wade Johnson. Sarah married Joe McPherson in 1952 and raised 4 children in Snow Camp.
