Grimes School Nov 1897, Gillespie Township, Macoupin County IL Picture Mt Olive School 1912



Grimes School Class, Gillespie Township
Macoupin County IL
Taken November 27, 1894



from Kathie Mirabella:
"My great grandmother was Lora Rachel Stokes Wheeler - the teacher in the picture.  School - Grimes school picture taken on November 27, 1894. This picture and newspaper article belonged to my grandmother, Rita Wheeler McDermott.  Lora Rachel Stokes Wheeler was born 9 Nov 1875 in Hettick, Macoupin, Illinois and died 9 Jan 1973 in Carlinville, Macoupin, Illinois.  The newspaper article says she is 95.  So I think it is from a Gillespie newspaper around 1971/1972.

 
My grandmother did not write the names on the newspaper article."
