Cool Paint Rock Alabama

Does anyone have information on a place called Paint Rock AAl? It is said to be at the Al/TN line. There was an Indian School three called Paint Rock Schhool. I think it was a missionary School for the Native american children to learn English. If anyone lknows of such a school, please advise.
In Peace<>+<>

Check a map - Paint Rock is not on the Ala.-Tenn. line, but it is not far. It's a very small country town. Dollar General (or the equivalent) is the biggest store in town. I believe you are right about the school, but don't know any details.

Default Paint Rock

Paint Rock is near Gurley, Woodville, and Scottsboro. It is a very small town. When riding through, if you blink, you miss it. It is located in Jackson County.
I found some history here: Jackson County, Alabama History

Default or it could be something else

Default Alabama Indian Information

Hi,
I have the url for the Alabama Indian Affairs Commission. They have information on almost everything involving the Indians of Alabama. I'm sure if this school existed they would know how to help you find more information about it. Go to the link, then contact information... Call them or email them! Good luck....

I appreciate all of your help. My father died when I was nine. He was 64 years old, He was half my mom's age. Daddy kept us away from public as much as possible. He said it was better to be black than Indian. My father's half sisters and one brother really treated him bad because his mom was Chrerokee.
I appreciate all the reply's. In Peace my friends <>+<>

My grand father was delivering coal trhere around 1990-1899 . My father was born in 1894 and his sibling and mother died when he was three years old. Grandpa remarried real soon and had three daughters and another son. So I am thinking 1890 -1894 would be a good timeline to look in for school info. . I only know that my aunt called it Paint Rock Indian School.
Thanking u in advance
