Hello Joyce,
My name is Dale Burfield and i"m from buffalo new york. I was looking for info on Hendy Creek School South Port Dist 1. I found your web site and was shocked to see a pic of the school.You also have children in front of the school with teacher.  It says if any one knows who the other children are to contact you.Well that's what im doing. I am 99% sure that the pic back row third from left (female) is my mother. I'm not 100% sure because I have never see a young pic of my mother. If it's her, her name was francis e walker.
She was a neighbor of the Thomas family. Also in the 2nd pic that is not working it has a child names Robert Walker which is her cousin.Also do you know or have any more pics or info on the school? Do you by any chance know what high school these children went to in Elmira?

Thank You  Dale
