Summerville Singing School

Picture from P. Bramblette

Text at bottom reads
GRIFFIT & MORTON  TRION

A photo of a Singing Class.  The 'X' s are members of the Kilgore and Dalton families...and it was taken circa 1890. Included were my cousins Emma Kilgo and her future husband Tom Dalton and some of their siblings.  
Does anybody know just where this picture was taken and if GRIFFIT - MORTON was a photo studio?
And could anybody identify any of the other people?
Several children of Willis S. Kilgo were shown in the picture besides Emma. Thanks...Pat Bramlette
