Submitted by Tom M. Short II

Tom sent the following along with the picture: "My grandfather, Fred Seaman Caldwell, son of John H. and Alma Ann Jones Caldwell, of Mansfield, preserved this photo and I presume, typed the names of the teacher and all of the pupils and kept it with the photo. Fred was born in Mansfield in 1898 and would have been about 7-8 years old in this photo."  Thanks, Tom!

Mansfield School about 1910-1912

Submitted by Tom M. Short II

Tom sent the following along with the picture: Tom sent the following along with the picture: "Here is another class photo, taken I would guess about 1910-1912. My grandfather Fred Caldwell is in the center / left of the photo with girls on all sides with his cap cocked on his head. He graduated from high school in Mansfield and lived there until he married and left, so the school must be in Mansfield. I don’t who the people in the photo are. I am sure there will be some who see this who recognize some of the people.
