Mapleton, Monona County, Iowa...photo shared by Steve Mosier. Steve says, "I thought you might like to see the attached photo. I don't know for a fact that it's from Mapleton, but it almost has to be. Second from the left in the front row is Earl George Carhart. Dead center in the photo, directly above the girl in white in the front row, is Lucy Mildred Jerome. The boy just behind the girl at the far right of the first row is named Charlie -- don't know the last name. Mildred Jerome graduated in the Mapleton H.S. class of '00; Earl Carhart graduated in '01. The only Charles who graduated within a few years of '00 or '01 was Charles Hayes, class of '02, so that might be him."

Researcher, Larry Lundeen, found this wonderful late 1800 Mapleton school photograph. Notice the flag in the picture with 44 Stars!
