Mulberry School Picture 2 - 1919

2. Possibly picture of Mulberry School, 1919 - 1920


These pictures belong to Imogene PICKERING (my aunt), of Mayfield, Beckham Co., OK, and I currently have them on loan to be scanned. They are not labeled on the back, however they appear to correspond to some notes on a couple of loose sheets of notebook paper made while my grandmother was still living.


The pages are a numbered list of family photos presumably in her posession at one time.  Generally speaking, the list gives the names of people in the photos (when the names were known), and sometimes also gives the location where it was taken, or the occasion. Most of the photos we have found that match the list have the list number marked on them, in a corner, and are circled.


These particular photos are not numbered however the descriptions of where my grandmother and her brother are, in the photos, matches these photos, and my aunt recognizes them as photos which her mother told her were taken while she was a student at the Mulberry School. Unfortunately, none of the people in the photos are identified except for my grandmother and her brother.


However, hopefully someone will see it here and be able to recognize some of the other faces, since the photos are for the most part very clear.  My grandmother, Mary Ann DAVIS, is the girl at the far right front in  picture 1 and her brother, [Willis] Grant DAVIS, is the boy at the far back left in picture 2. My guess is that these were taken shortly after WWI, maybe about 1919-1920? That would make my grandmother 15-16, and her brother 18-19.


Mary Ann and Willis Grant were the children of Ulysses Sheridan "Sherad" DAVIS and Sophia Catherine Shimel. The family moved from Wright Co., MO to the Beckham/Roger Mills Co. area of OK sometime before 1910. They are listed as living in the North Fork Township of Beckham Co. in the Federal Census for 1910 (p. 4-A), and were living with another family (W. MCCORA?) in the Meridian Township of Roger Mills Co. during the Federal Census taken in 1920 (ED 159, p. 4-B).
