Old School Class Photo 1890s

Old School Class Photo 1890s

This photo appears to be that of a school class. It was found in an old trunk belonging to Lura Mawhinney Shouey (#17). On the back of the picture is the date Jan. 22,1922 and words History of This Bunch In 1922. There is then a list of names with some details after each. These comments were made by Lura. The order of the names and who they belonged to was established by using the pictures of Lura Mawhinney (#17), her brothers Mont (# 7) and George (#10) and her younger sister Florence (#23) all of whom are identified in other family photos. This photo was probably taken between 1892 and 1895 based on the apparent ages of these four siblings.
