I discovered this photo in Skinnies album.
Skinnie (Aunt Frances) was one of the teachers.
That is Aunt Frances on the far left.
The upper mark is Far Guy’s Dad Marvin. The lower mark is Uncle Jimmy because he looks just like his son Jay.
Far Guy and I looked over the photo for Uncle Ron with no clear answer. Perhaps he is in the back row the second boy from Aunt Francis. OR maybe he was sick that day.
I believe this photo was taken in the spring of 1928. Marvin would have been 13, Ron 10 and Jimmy 6. It was taken at the school in Osage….which later became the Community Center…which was later torn down to make room for the new Baptist Church later named Community Church.
I can still see how wonderful the building looked when Osage celebrated the Centennial…it was painted and served the community well, its real wood floors were warped with age and the out house was out back.
48 students and two teachers
