Reeves Homeplace

This is an artist's depiction of the old 2-story James Milton Reeves homeplace as recollected by a relative who grew up there. Note that there was a small schoolhouse across the road from it. Do you know the name and history of the schoolhouse? It seems like an odd place to put it, away from a major thoroughfare, but a living relative has verified to me that it existed.

Unknown Photos

Can you identify any of these?

Reeves, James Milton & ?????
This picture, which was just recently identified, appears to be a professional portrait photo of James with two of his sons. I've had it in my possession for almost 20 years, but didn't know who it was until I was given the picture above by a cousin in Upson County. I inherited the portrait photo from my father, who probably got it from his father, G.G. Reeves, son of James, who died while living with my father and mother in his old age. James is the one seated with a fiddle.  The identity of the two sons is not known at this point, but if you would be so kind as to also post it in the "Unidentified photos" section, perhaps someone will recognize the two sons.
