ca. 1893

Croghan School Fremont, Ohio ca. 1893

Although this photograph of the students at Fremont, Ohio's Croghan School is dated 1889, it is more likely ca. 1893, according to donor Charles Weiker, who dates the image from the identification of one of the students pictured, who was known to have died in 1893 at age 6. There are only a few students identified.
