For now, the easiest way I could do this, without a lot of effort, was to create a link from text. When you click on the link the photo will pop-up on your screen. If you right click on the photo a pop-up menu will appear. Select the “save image as” off the menu, and it will save the photo on your PC.

Except where noted, all photos were scanned from their originals. Any photo, or a set of photos, or a photo in other format can be provided upon request.

Northern York Schools

The following photos are from Dulcet Cortege. They are of a teacher Margaret Baker, and of the Smith and Elicker children, in various schools within the present day Northern York County School District.

There is a book; The Story of the One-Room School: In the Townships of the Northern York County School District, by Dr. Brain Small, that can purchased from the Northern York County Historical and Preservation Society.  NYCHAPS 

DC 01    1911 school; Margaret Baker and her brother Mervin are sitting beside each other to the left in the front row. Their other brother, Parker Baker, is in the front row 7th from the left. The bothers have the same style and pattern of shirts.

DC 02    1923 Dillsburg High School Graduation Class; 1923 Dillsburg High School Graduation Class; Margaret Baker is sitting to the left in the front row. Her brother Mervin is in the back row, 3rd from the left. Mervin is one year older then Margaret, but they are graduating together.

The next set of photos are of classes Margaret Baker taught in the Dillsburg area.

DC 03    Margaret Baker Class, one of the 1st classes she would have taught after her 1923 high school graduation.

DC 03A    Margaret Baker Class.

DC 04    Margaret Baker Class.

DC 06    Margaret Baker Class; November 21st 1934, Central School.

The next 2 school pictures are of the Smith children attending school, which we’re pretty sure is a school that sat directly across the road from present day South Mountain Elementary, where Northern Apartments are currently located. Again, we’re still researching the schools. The years are approximate.

DC 08    Circa 1913 School; Glenn Smith is in the 2nd row, 2nd from the left. His sister Hazel Smith may be the girl in the back row, against the brick wall, 2nd from left.

DC 10    Circa 1914 School; Glenn Smith is 2nd row, far left. Other Smith children would be in here too, but they can’t be identified.

DC (12) is clearly labeled Glenwood 1902. DC (13) is marked 1910, and it may be the school in Dillsburg. DC (14) is a photo of a large number of students, which is dated circa 1913. We’re still researching all of the photos.

DC 12A    1920 Glenwood School; Russell Elicker is in the front row next to the teacher.

DC 13    1910 School; Russell Elicker is back row, 6th from the left, standing next to the girl.

2014 New Orleans Louisana

The following are the photos of our visit with Mike and Alys Sim. I was Mike's big brother during our Fraternity days. My big brother was Bill Wessels. My wife and I haven’t seen Mike for over ten years, and we’re so glad to reconnect.

While we visited we were lucky enough to get acquainted with Alys about her family heritage, and learned that she is a 6th generation New Orleans resident of French, Spanish, Irish and English decent. Anyome who knows me in this time and space is, that I cherish my heritage, and the heritage of others. Just check out our online Taylor ~ Graham Library. Most of our photos are from visiting the Oak Alley Plantation, which is one of the only plantations near New Orleans that has been restored to its original state. I couldn’t resist making a few of the photos in black and white (B/W).

You can learn about this plantation, and see more photos at their web site
