These names are from a book purchased at an auction. The book is called "Complete School Register of Ithaca School, Twin Tp., Darke Co., Albert Beakler, Teacher".
The book is a record of attendance. The recording of same runs across both pages. Some pages have ages, some do not. Also some children on same page have ages and others do not. I did not find the ages always too close on the ones in my family; ages even change in this book.
The first two pages are the # One Term beginning Sept. 16th, 1889, ending Mch. 11th, 1890. The first set of names are the girls: the second set are the boys.
