I have this pre-Fort Jackson school photo from about 1912, and I need help with identifying some of the people in it.
Four of my ancestors are in the photo:
Lizzie Martin, about 10 years old, is on the top right
Stella Martin, about 6 years old, is on the middle right
Adolphus Martin, about 12 years old, is on the bottom left
Gary Martin, about 5 years old, is 3rd from the left on the bottom row.
These four are all children of Adolphus Burdine MARTIN (1867-1917) and Elizabeth Patience “Lizzie” LEE MARTIN (1868-1937). My grandfather, Joel Daniel Martin, is the oldest of Adolphus and Lizzie’s children.
This family was one of the families that owned Fort Jackson land in Richland County, South Carolina, before it was Fort Jackson, so this school was probably on that land, too.
Do you know any of the others?
Do you recognize anyone in the photo? If you do, please comment and let me know.
And please share this blog around to other Fort Jackson families you know.
I’d love to identify everyone in the photo and for their descendants to have this fantastic photo as part of their collection.
