Each Monday, the Centre Daily Times will publish an installment in our “Share our Heritage” series, featuring photos from Centre County’s past. Today’s photo is from Sue Johnson Wesley, of Huntingdon.
She wrote, “I do not know any of the children in this picture, only the teacher — Miss Bessie Johnson. She was my aunt.”
However, Robert M. Dillon, of Centre Hall, shared an old postcard of the same photo with us and the children’s names were written on the back.
They are, in the first row, from left: Lawrence Shawley, Delmar Heaton, John Shawley, Gladys Miller, Sara Yarnell, Hanna Malone, Mary Shawley and Fay Confer.
Second row, from left: Walter Miller, Charlie Miller, Clinton Eckley, Bernice Eckley, Loyal Pournee and James McClincey.
Third row, from left: Lawrence Heaton, Ralph Heaton, Eugene Eminhizer, Viola Walker, Sara Eckley, Myrtle Miller, Carrie Fetzer, Alta Yarnell and teacher Bessie Johnson.
