Double Sink School, Levy County, Florida about 1925. That's my father N.R. Doke in the front row, on the left. Let me know if any o' y'all can identify any of the other folks. I expect most of them were kin to him: Doke, Roberts, Asbell, Morgan, Sheffield, Weeks, Manley, Howard, Wilcox, Simmons and Geiger were all among the local kinfolks! One day I'll get around to scanning the painting that my cousin's wife did of the old Pine Grove Baptist Church and I'll share that too. My G-Grandmother's brother-in-law James K. Sheffield (married to Linnie Roberts) was either the founding Pastor or an early one.
