Mystery Photos

Claypool School, October 21, 1902:
Contributor Sandy Todd (5/16/99): This photo of Claypool School was taken on Oct. 21, 1902 and the teacher's name is written on a slate beside the window as Jno. Wood. My grandmother who is in the photo lived on a farm near Blodgett, Missouri. Several of her relatives are buried in Silent Hill Cemetery near Blodgett. I have no idea where Claypool School was located. I only know two of the people in the photo. Their names and locations in the photo are as follows:  A.B. Williams, my great-uncle, is leaning out of the window with one hand on the slate sign and one hand on the boy below him. My mother says that A.B. was an Assistant Teacher (he was 18 yrs. old when the photo was taken).
My grandmother, Pearl Williams (14 yrs. old) is in the second row from the back with all the older girls. She is the third girl from the left as you face the photo with her left arm on the shoulder of the girl next to her. Those are the only people we know in the photo. Hopefully, others will visit the Scott County web page and be able to name some of the other children!
