The Kansas Heritage Server would like to thank Jolynne Bockman (josfamilytree@charter.net) for contributing this information.

Here is a list of names of students from the 1908 Mulberry School (Clay County, Kansas) for your site.   This list is taken from the Souvenir book.  This book does not contain student photos, but the front cover has one photo that I believe is of the teacher.

This photo is of students at the Mulberry school, Clay County, Kansas.  I believe the photo is around 1909-1911.  I am not positive of the dates, however.
This belonged to my grandmother, Lyla Stoneback.  She is in the second row, third from the right with the checkmark.  Bernice Stoneback, her sister, is in the front row, second from the left.  These are the only people I am able to identify.
On the back of the photo in Grandmother's handwriting is: "Lyla and Bernice, Mulberry school picture."

This photo is from Mulberry School, Clay County, Kansas.  I believe it was taken around 1909-1911.
The photo belonged to my grandmother, Lyla Stoneback.  On the back, in her handwriting, it says, "Lyla & Bernice, Mulberry school picture."
Lyla Stoneback is on her knees with the checkmark, Bernice Stoneback is standing with the checkmark.  I am unable to identify other students.
