Bible School at the old Spray Presbyterian Church c.1932
Spray, North Carolina

This picture was probably made about 1932.  I get this date by calculating my daddy's age at the time,  going by the picture.
Thomas M. Lee is 5th child from the left on the front row. The adult female at far left is my grandma's sister, Ora Janney Yarbrough. The adult female at far right is another of my grandma's sisters, Okey Janney Cheek.

This church was one of two that eventually formed what is now the First Presbyterian church currently on Bridge Street.  The names are correct i.e. Okey Cheek and Ora Yarborough.  These ladies were my neighbors as I grew up and were members of the Presbyterian Church.  The church in the photo still stands and was Early Avenue Baptist church for many years.  My mother was the organist there for many years....just thought that you would like to know..........thanks for the outstanding site....Mac Hodges
