Winterville H. S. senior class 1925-26
- These a few of the students who were in the same senior class as my
aunt, Alma Danez Worthington, the Class of 1925-26 at Winterville
High School (Pitt County, NC).
Sarah Brown Braxton (Hunnicutt) (grad. 1926)
Mae Belle Carroll (grad. 1926)
Robert Vernon "Rowdy" Worthington
Bruce Tucker (male) (grad. 1926)
Brandol James (grad. 1926)
and their teacher, Cecil Turner
I am trying to gather more information on them to complete an
unfinished project I started a couple of years ago. Most of the
students would have been born about 1908, 1909 or 1910.
I have gathered some information on a number of the other students
who graduated in the Class of 1926, but additional information would
be welcomed. These graduates are:
Alma Danez Worthington (my aunt)
Anna Belle Tyson (Anderson)
Wilbur Leroy Worthington
Roxie Earle James (Waters)
Haywood Ammoriah McLawhorn
Mark Howard Worthington
Any biographical information will be helpful - parents, spouses,
descendants, what they did after graduation, and especially other
living relatives that I may contact.

I remember that here in Richmond, Virginia the
craze was bomb shelters. Many people invested in them,
building a basement shelter or placing one in the
yard. Bill Kittrell noted in one of his e-mails when a
member inquired about a property he had purchased that
there might be an underground bomb shelter on it.
Mama figured that a bomb shelter only ensured that
one would die of the fall-out later if he escaped the
Therefore, she did not even consider building one.
