 This photo from 1894 shows the students who attended the Goodman-Perrill Road one room school. The school building is visible in the background of the photo. Grant Watkins, who as an adult would become renowned for his skills as a cowboy and champion sheep shearer, is pictured here at age 11 on the top row second from the left. Also pictured here, second from the left in the second row, is Pearl Watkins, who would become a successful Madison Township farmer. The other children in the photo are unidentified. Can you name any of them?
