The photo is dated on the back March 29, 1915.

Back row, third from the right, wearing the bow tie is my grandfather, Guilford Lawton Smith. He came to Caddo County, probably around Sickles or Lookeba, to teach from Arkansas.

In November 1916 he married Florence Harrell who lived on her father's farm (he was Nick Harrell) a couple of miles southwest of Sickles town, and then I think he farmed and did not teach. They left the area for Arkansas around 1919 when Nick Harrell sold and moved to Creek County.
Anyone who knows anything about this photo can contact me at I would be really happy to find out where it was taken.
Thanks very much,

On the back of the original it has the following:

Mary Bearden, Willie Salyer, Isaac Richardson, Helen Ruth Sellars, Levi Edwards, Pearl Edwards, Delores Pittman, Wanda Lou Hedrick and Eugene Winchester
There is another name but it is not legible due to a tear on the back.
Willie Salyer is the last boy on the right side, front row.
Photo numbered for reference:
Front row left to right: #1 - #9.
Second row left to right: #10 - #21
Back row left to right: #22 - #32.

Note: this information received from Dorothy Kerlick.

I'm sure this was taken in 1943. Some of these didn't attend Binger before then because they were in rural schools. This class was 2 years behind me and I graduated in 1946--so this wasn't 1940.

We have been able to identify Delbert Salyer who is in the front row, 5th from left.
Based on Delbert's dob 1922, we thought this may be ca. 1933.
Dale Salyer (dob 1926) is in the 2nd row, 2nd from left.

Note from Dena Tucker: Melba Salyer is in the second row 7th from the left. She was born in 1925 so if it was 1933 that would make her 8, could this possibly be 1935??

L to R: Back row: Jewel Smith, William Lanier, Iris Hunt, Ralph Briggs, Wilma Hunt, Dale Schears

Middle row: Ray Smith, Marvin Fleeting?, Marie O'Briant, Winfred Briggs, Verna Mae Lanier, Howard Holder, Thressel Pittman Vance (teacher)

Front row: J. E. "Buddy" O'Briant, "Taters" Hunt, "Jiggs" Hunt, Grace O'Briant, Leon Smith.

Note: William Lanier married Marie O'Briant. I'm not positive what year this was taken, but based on the dob of Buddy O'Briant, the earliest it could have been was 1931. Based on the dob of Marie O'Briant, the latest it could have been was spring 1934; my guess is probably 1933.
