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.


Don:
 
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.
Branch High School

Said to be first High School in town of Branch, Arkansas.

  The first high school was built under the hill somewhere back of Leon Holland’s house around 1907. Students who attended the school were: Kate Turner, Clyde Robison, Mabel Rogers DeWitt, Jep Pendergrass, Irene Pendergrass, Bradley Turner, Beulah Hunter, Luther Hunter, Bert Hunter, Voyt Hill, Perry King, Roy Watson, Tom King, Avis Warren. (These are names reported by different people.)
Cass School 1906

Cass 1919 Don,
I have a very nice picture of the Class of 1919, Cass School, there are over a hundred children in it, I only know one child in the picture, and she is my Mom, Nannie Elizabeth Russell 11 yrs of age, I am sure there are people out there who know who these children are, and maybe if it was on the Franklin Co. site, they would be recognized.

I tried to e-mail it to you, but for some reason I am having trouble sending it, is there a snail mail address I could send it to?

I printed your Cass 1906 picture, and it was great that every child was listed, of which I found three that are in my tree, Tanner Childers, Mary Childers, and Sam Russell, who is the brother of my Grandfather Elias L. Russell.
