19th Century Photograph of Students at ? School, No. 9; possibly New Brunswick, Maine or Michigan


19th century photograph of the students at a school identified on the back as ? School No. 9"; perhaps Cranford School.


The photograph measures about 8" by 5"; the entire piece measures almost 10" by 8".  It was found with a collection of photographs of people, some identified, from Maine, New Brunswick, Michigan and Rhode Island.
  • Helen Eola Mayo - of Bangor, Maine
  • David Peavey - presumably the David H. Peavey of Exeter, Maine and, thus, maternal grandfather of Helen Eola Mayo
  • Samuel A. Robinson - baby photograph; identified as father of Curtis Skolfield Robinson
  • Percy Leroy Way - by a Woodstock, New Brunswick, studio - lived for a while in Michigan
  • Maebelle White - by a Detroit, Michigan studio, but born at Hermansville, Michigan; niece of wife of Percy Leroy Way
  • Margaret White - by a Detroit, Michigan studio, but possibly born at Hermansville, Michigan; niece of wife of Percy Leroy Way
  • Cabinet card of an unidentified elderly man by the J. F. Gerrity studio of Bangor, Maine; handwriting on reverse: July 23, 1896, 94 years - was the date his birthday celebration, his death date or the date the photograph was taken?
  • Unidentified people in 8 CDVs from Bangor, Maine; Providence, Rhode Island; and Pawtucket, Rhode Island

If you can tease out the name of the school from any of the clues above, please leave a comment or contact me directly.
