Among the keepsakes of my grandmother Mary Emma Scarbrough is a studio portrait of a young African-American woman named "Imogene Hood". On the back of the photo my gm wrote, "My first school teacher, Ashland, Ala." Since my gm was born in nearby Mellow Valley in 1880, this would place the time frame of the photo to about 1885-86. Emma's family moved to Albertville soon thereafter.
I would like to find out more about Ms. Hood and the school in Ashland at which she might have taught; I assume it was first grade or so.
