What schools did Joel attend in Mobile?

Map of Mobile 1919
Educational BackgroundAlthough there is no definitive evidence regarding Joel’s educational background, several possible schools she might have attended were identified. Of the various primary schools found in the Mobile area at that time, the most likely prospects Joel might have attended were Barton Academy, Mrs. Stephens Croom’s School, the Knott School, Madame Paul Robert’s School for Girls and Miss Annie Hunter’s School. Most of these schools were located within a four-block radius of the homes Joel shared with her parents, Willis and Moffitt Roberts, and her half-sisters Kate and Lillie Taylor.
