ETNA SCHOOL STUDENTS AND FACULTY 1914 AND 1934

UPPER PHOTO 1914
From Tom Benefiel: "Scribbled in pencil on the back was hard-to-read names of this picture from our Uncle Cecil Benefiel's archives. I scanned the back, lightened it up, and Dad deciphered the names of the kids. Many he could figure out because he knew them as older adults when he was a kid in Etna."
LOWER PHOTO 1934
From Tom Benefiel: "All the names were on the back of the photo. Dad knew them all! How many redundant last names are there? I think every student in row three has a same-last named sibling or cousin in the rows 1 and 2."
RLY NOTE: Fred Benefiel in the 1914 photo is the father of Bobby Joe Benefiel in the 1934 photo and the grand father of Tom Benefiel author of the preceding notes. Note the church and steeple in the background of the 1914 photo. Among the 1934 students were many who were at NTHS when I was there 1939 to 1943 including Gene,Gail and Beverly Barber, Bobby Joe Benefiel, Charles Crawford, Mary Jane Drennan, Bob Pugsley, Dortha Montgomery and Elwanda Drennan plus I apologize for perhaps omitting others who I may not recall after more than 60 years.
