Bronaugh School Scenes

Late 1920's - 1930

Here are three photos shared by Charles W. Ray Jr. and Manford Sheridan and his sister, Deloris Sheridan Heitz. Marjorie Noel Range and Violet Adams Campbell have helped with many identifications.

This 1927 photograph was taken of third and fourth grade classes at Bronaugh. Bronaugh students pictured are, front row from left: Euleta Wilson, Blanche Stark, Violet Adams, Ona Moore, Deloris Sheridan, Dixie Lee Linn, Marjorie Manley, Marie Ella Townson, Dean Garton and Leonard Manley. Back row Miss Lee Earl Thompson, Norval Campbell, Max Smith, Harold White, Mildred Smithly, Claudia Roberts, Marjorie Noel, Louise Musgrave and Jeanetta Nuckolls. On the 1936 web page, you can find photos of some of these students when they graduated from high school.

Identifications from Bushwhacker Weekly Magazine, Vol.2--No. 13, Wed, May 13, 1981, Nevada, Missouri 64772 - REMEMBER WHEN.... The picture was brought to The Bushwhacker by Mrs. Clarence (Euleta Wilson) Foreman, Rt. 1, Horton. Corrections by Deloris Sheridan.

Louise Musgrave, Jeanetta Nuckolls, Marjorie Noel, Goldie Justus, Claudia Roberts, Violet Adams, Blanche Stark, Deloris Sheridan, Dixie Lee Linn and Euleta Wilson. The boy in the tree is John Nickolls. (Thanks to Marjorie and Violet for the identifications)

The girl on the very far left is Violet Adams and you can't see her partner, Joel Young. The tall couple on the left is Jeanetta Nuckolls and John Nuckolls. The center right front couple is Marjorie Noel and Norval Campbell (in white shirt). This is also a pretty good view of the school when it was 3 stories. (Thanks to Marjorie and Violet for the identifications)
