My three times great Aunt Rebecca Burke was born in Dallas County, Alabama About 1889. Rebecca and her husband George Tompkins were instrumental figures in the Bromley, Alabama community. In 1920 Rebecca began teaching in the one room school called The Blakeley school aka the Little Red School House. Her husband George turned an old farm truck into a school bus to take neighborhood children to school. Rebecca accumulated more than 50 years of service in the Baldwin County School system. Rebecca Burke Tompkins is part of my black history.
