This photo of a Sunday School Class from around 1912, is probably from the Simeon Union Church, Gratz, Dauphin County, Pennsylvania. Normally, in such union churches, where the Lutheran and Reformed congregations alternated weeks in using the building for worship, Sunday School was held weekly as a joint endeavor.
The exact date of the picture has not been officially established, but those who have analyzed it believe it is about 1912, give or take a year.
Those identified in the picture are:
Front Row (seated): Elsie [Welker] Sitlinger; Marie Buffington; Flossie [Zerfing] Dietrich, Verna [Bowman] Strouse, Myrtle Deitz.
Back Row (standing): Annie [Witmer] Reed (partially cut off from break in picture); Blanche Haag; Mae [Klinger] Klinger; Mrs. William Rogers, teacher; Fae [Klinger] Umholtz; Katie [Williard] Kroh, Mae [Hess] Rogers; Mildred [Daniels] Yeager.
