-photos contributed by Sean Ryan
-contributor notes: The (original) class photos are at the Allamakee county historical society. I can identify two individuals in the senior class photo: my grandparents James Ryan and Charlotte Barthell. There is another relative in the class, Clare Barthell, as well as a "relative-in-law" Gertrude Stilwell, but I have no idea where they are seated in the photo.
-the graduation photos of my grandmother Charlotte Barthell, and the other of the girl at the far right of the class of 1918 photo were shared with me by Mr. John Dickson.
(Sean's email address can be found in the Surname Registry for Ryan)
-update, August 25, 2007 from Lori Mayer of St. Ansgar, Iowa: "I recognize my Grandma, Marie Denning Hansen on this photo. She is the young lady sitting on the far right in the bottom row." and "I checked with my Uncle Duane. He said the photo of the young lady graduate with the rose is definitely not my Grandmother, Marie Denning Hansen."
-webmaster notes: the large class photo did not resize well for display on the website, which is the reason for the distortion of facial features.
Can you put a name with a face in these photos? Email the Allamakee co. coordinator.
