Bryson School (or may be Keyser School)
(Around 1913 and 1915)
sent in by Curtis Price bioguy64@gmail.com
He writes: "My Great Grandmother, Clementine Isabelle Nichols, is in the picture between the two males on the back row.  I arrived at that date because Clemmie appears to be about 16 years old and was born in 1897.  Clemmie was born and raised in Jack County.  The girl on the opposite side of the teacher is Ethel Gulley Rhodes." 
The second picture may be from about 1915.
