Jim Slaton in the 5th Grade




An earlier post (Feb 16) , Juriah Elder Celebrates Grandson's First Birthday,


shows Jim Slaton at the Historic J. D. Elder House on Cedar Street.


Later his parents and Jim moved to the Historic J. H. Slaton House on South Broadway.


He attended the nearby Broadway School, where he is pictured in the 5th grade.
Front row, 3rd from right.
He would walk past the school enroute to the store.
See comments on this post.


The D. L. Ford mentioned in this story was one of the
Crittenden County Natives identified in my January 25th post.
