Photo of Students that attended Stony Brook One-Room School in 1949
This photo shows the Springettsbury Township students that attended Stony Brook School during the 1949-1950 School Year. Within the following pictured One-Room Schoolhouse, Mrs. Mary H. Colyer, taught these 36 students.
Springettsbury Township students received an education in this building from 1913 to 1952. During most of that time, a single teacher taught students in grades 1 through 8 in this single room. After 1946, the number of grades housed in the schoolhouse dropped; during the 1949-1950 School Year, the school only housed students in grades 1 through 3.
This former school structure still stands. It is presently repurposed as the Studio 5 Styling Salon at 101 Locust Grove Road in Springettsbury Township, York County, PA. Additional details can be found in the post: Stony Brook One-Room Schoolhouse (1913-1952).
Please Help to Identify All Students
Only 9 of the 36 students were identified on the back of the school photo. Hopefully my readers can help with the identification of the remaining 27 students. Those identified are:
- Dale Anstine
- Kathleen Brenner
- Janet Ilgenfritz
- Barbara March
- Charles Myers
- Sylvia Seiple
- Barry Williams
- Ted Williams
- John Wishard
In the following images, I’ve enlarged the photo and separated it into halves, so that the faces can be recognized easier. The positions of the identified students are noted at the bottom of each image.
