This picture was kept by my
grandmother Minnie Cooper
/ Clabaugh (born 1885 - died 1965).
She was a teacher and she taught for at least one year at the
Robinsonville School. My guess is that this picture was taken
about 1903 - 1905.
I know that at least two others
in this picture were school teachers. Is this a picture of all
the teachers in a Twp. for a given year? Or is it more likely,
since all appear to be about the same age, a graduating class
for school teachers?
Can anyone further identify
Miss Miller and Mr. Snyder?
While I'm certainly hoping
to find further information about these people, I'm also hoping
that someone will examine this picture and identify an ancestor
in a picture they've never seen before.
