Three photos added 10/25/06 by Cornelia Andrus. Photos are suspected of Alix, but could be Denning for which we have no photos to cross reference.
I think this was taken about 1923, probably in Alix, possibly in Denning. I can only identify one child, my mother, Jadwiga (aka Harriet or Hedwig) Chrostowski, daughter of Martin & Wanda (Gawrys) Chrostowski. Jadwiga is in the second row, kneeling behind the ros of sitting boys, in the dark blouse with V-shaped trim.
|Altus school 1900-1932||These two class pictures were in my cousins old pictures and she let me copy them. Miss Ruth Phillip's Class was written on the back of one and Miss Mary Herbert's Class was written on the back of the second.|
|Barnes School Called Barnes because it was located near Barnes.||Torn photograph of a school class. The little girl to lower right of the photo with "Me" written across her chest is my maternal grandmother Mary Malinda Childers. She was born at Barnes, lived at Barnes and was married at Barnes. My grandmother was born in July of 1889 so I am guessing that the picture was taken around 1895 - 1897 trying to judge her age. Actual name of school unknown so far.|
