I received so many positive comments about the photograph of my great grandmother's Van Buren Township school students I posted a few days ago, I thought I would post a few more
These photographs are also from a Van Buren Township School in an area that is now the west side of Kettering, Montgomery County, Ohio.
In the first photograph, (circa 1905) my grandfather, Leland Norris is seated, front row, second from the left with his arms folded.
In the second photograph, (circa 1909) my grandfather is in the middle row, smack dab in the middle with the hat and a lighter colored shirt. His dear friend, Vera, is seated, second from the left.
In the last photo, (circa 1910) my grandfather is standing, far right. You can see a little "x" that is written on his shoulder.
I wish I could identify some of the other children or the teacher, but so far, I cannot. I love these pictures; not only because I can see my grandfather as we was, but also because they are part of the rich history of my city.
