Oklahoma School - 1895

provided by Glenn Thoming

This photo of the Oklahoma School was taken on October 11, 1895.  Mrs. Sarah Love loaned it to the St. Clair Chronicle, date of publication not known.  This picture was digitized from that newspaper picture and is of very poor quality.  It is one more example of an institution that is rapidly fading from our memory.  Perhaps some chance viewer may have a better picture they would share.  (He was almost ashamed to send such a poor picture but the identification of the students needs to be preserved in case someone finds the actual photograph).
Front Row, Ross Studdard, Ben Pierce, Martha Walls, Claude Walls, Maude King, Nancy Chance, Teacher Clara Nappier, Mattie Falast, Henry Falast, John Sohn, Will Bowman.
Second Row, Allie Lack, Sarah Love, Clara Turner, Gertrude Cain, Jessie Boles, Katie Studdard, Liza Studdard, Anna Walls (holding the slate), other girls are not known.
Third Row, Laura Sohn, Addie Studdard, Charles Smith, George Pierce, Cornelius Hartley, Elmer Pierce, Harry Lack, Jim Webster, Ed Nappier.
