STUDENTS & FACULTY

The school had about 80,000 graduates. The names of a small handful of them (as submitted by researchers or as posted elsewhere on the internet) are listed below. The list is slowly growing. If you would like to add your ancestor to this list, send an email to Arne H Trelvik with whatever information you might have about their attendance at the school. I'd be happy to include a photo and short bio if you have them.

      "DOB: September 24, 1865
      "He taught at Cripple Creek High School in Cripple Creek, CO for a number of years (I’ve attached a letter from him on School letterhead to his brother on the occasion of his brother’s wedding). After retiring from teaching he returned to New Cumberland, WV – the place of his birth – and resided well there until his death. (I have the equivalent of 12 copy paper boxes of family history to go through)
      His Great-great-grandfather’s brother, George Ross signed the Declaration of Independence, as did George’s brother-in-law, George Read. Incidentally, George Ross’ nephew John Ross was married to Betsy Griscom, better known as Betsy Ross, creator of our nation’s flag. William Stewart had quite the family background!"
