Old Russell County Church Group Picture

Here's a large group picture, taken somewhere in Russell County, possibly at a church, although probably not for Sunday service. None of the children are wearing shoes, and not all of the boys are in suits. Other contemporary pictures show shoes and suits. None of these children are identified. Recognize anyone? 

As for the date, I'll guess circa 1900-1910.
