Lisa Henderson shared this image printed in the Wilson Daily Times showing Addie Davis Butterfield‘s 1945 first-grade class at Samuel H. Vick Elementary. Butterfield is pictured at top right, and the children include her nephew William Bayard Davis Jr., front row in white shirt and tie; Rudolph Kersey Bullock, laughing beside Davis; Jessie Gertrude Baldwin Pouncey; Patricia Ann Tabron Bates; Alton Ray Kirk; Robert Eugene Dew; Earline Blount; Callie Joyce Bowens; Sarah Frances Greene; Reuben Hammonds; Luther Mincey and Raymond Bell. The original Times caption attributes the photo to the collection of Diane Davis Myers, Butterfield’s niece. The Wilson Times is publishing historical photos of Wilson County life and landmarks in this space each day.
