1899 Souvenir of the Ridge School at Eastbrook, Maine; Josie B. Bunker, Teacher; Names of Students and School Superintendent J. D. Crimmin

Souvenir of the 1899 Fall Term of the Ridge School at Eastbrook, Maine.

The souvenir contains the names of teacher Josie B. Bunker; Superintendent of Schools, J. D. Crimmin; and the names of all the students.  The pieces shown were attached with ribbon at some point, judging from the holes, and there might be a panel or two missing.

From brief online research, hopefully correct - corrections and additions requested:

Josephine B. Bunker, "Josie", was born about May 1877 in Maine, the daughter of Sidney Smith Bunker and Medora Albert (Martin) Bunker.  Josie died in 1918 and is buried in the York Hill Cemetery at Sullivan, Maine, with her parents and other relatives.

J. D. Crimmin was presumably John D. Crimmin (1835-1906), who is buried in the Crimmons Cemetery at Eastbrook, Maine.  He had a son of the same name, but the son, I believe, had moved to Massachusetts by 1899.
