McCrory's Corner School Group Photo & Article 1915

I was looking through a book I have titled "Lewis Ring, Tennessee Patriarch" by Helen Ring Womack and came across a map with the location of the McCrory's Corner School. According to the map the school was located toward the end of what is now Green Schoolhouse Road. My uncle told me at one time that road went all the way to the Duck River. The map was from a WPA Map dated 1939, showing Maury County Farm Owners. It was copied by Tom H. Chunn. Tom stated that "farm number two, where the B. Brown Cemetery is located is where I grew up. McCrory's School was located in the NW corner of the farm." In the book there is a passage from Century Review of Maury Co. Tenn 1807-1907, "McCrory's School was started before the war (Civil) by JW Ring, Jas. Wallace and others who purchased Old Macedonia Church, in Marshall Co. and removed the logs to this point. The present frame was erected some 20 years ago, Mrs. WR Brown having been among the first teachers in the new house. Annie L Briley taught in 1905 and JS Craig is teacher for 1906." I hope this helps clear up this mystery.  Becky Odell albeck@cvinternet.net
