Taegesville School Photos

More photos from the collection of Jim and Marlene Strehlow.  These show the Taegesville School (Town of Maine, Marathon County, Wisconsin) about 1910.  There are many family members in it and others who would marry into the family eventually.  The first one is marked “c1910” and the second “c1913-14?”, however they look like sequential years to me judging by the children’s ages.

You can click on the photos to enlarge or download them.

About cthomas1967

Seeking to bring my ancestors out of the shadows of history and into the light. I have always been interested in history, and at a few different times I tried to do a family tree, but wasn't able to do it with the technology that was available then. On a business trip I visited the World War I Museum in Kansas City, MO and it was a very impressive establishment. While I was there I remember thinking, "Didn't my great-grandfather father fight in World War I? And wasn't his brother killed alongside him in some famous battle? I wonder if I can find out where he died." That's what started it all. View all posts by cthomas1967
